The calls that really piss me off are the roughing the passer and unecessary roughness. The only spot you can tackle a QB now is the torso. You can't go near his legs and it is a penalty if you touch his helmut. Pretty soon it is going to be tag football or flag football for a QB.
Also, the refs are very biased when it comes to players. As much as I hate him, James Harrison and Ndamukong Suh get penalties just for tackling a guy because they are known as hard hitters.
If there is a review system I like the way College Football does it. Why not just have a replay official in the booth and let him examine the plays and make the decision. I could go off on a tangent here but I think the officials call the game differently because or replay and that changes the scope of a game.
I think the roughing the passer calls are a necessary evil but I wish you could challenge a call. I also wish the NFL would do more to hold the refs accountable. I just get tired of seeing the bad officials do games and not be taken to task for their calls.
