My NFL protest involves the officiating

VIP Denny the Dog | I’m officially starting an NFL protest. I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore. And, it has nothing to do with kneeling during the National Anthem. My protest is in response to the inconsistent officiating throughout the league, week after week.
I’m officially starting an NFL protest. I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore. And, it has nothing to do with kneeling during the National Anthem.
My protest is in response to the inconsistent officiating throughout the league, week after week. It’s the same, frustrating call every time I sit down to watch a game. The secondary commits pass interference on nearly every play.
The one arm attempts to bat the ball away while the lower arm has already wrapped itself around the receiver prior to the ball getting to the receiver.
Either that, or the receiver gives a slight push off to the defender just prior to turning to find the pass. Both clubs, along with all the fans, are at the mercy of the officials’ calls.
One official’s pass interference is another ref’s no call. And, another official’s defensive holding or offensive push-off is yet another ref’s no call. It’s driving me insane. But somehow I think the protest is going nowhere fast. I enjoy watching the NFL too much. The great thing is I don’t have to watch the National Anthem if I don’t want to. But I have to watch the games.
So I guess it’s the shortest protest in the history of the NFL. It’s over. I just pray for some officiating consistency someday, somehow. It would help lower my blood pressure that’s for sure.

Texans +5.5 at Seahawks: Seattle should be able to take advantage of no Watt or Mercilus. Russell Wilson threw for over 300 yards and 3 TDs versus the G-men. He nailed two of those TDs in a red hot 4th quarter. DeShaun Watson is accurate but this Sunday he sees a tougher defense in the roughest venue he’s come up against yet in his short career. SEAHAWKS
