Likely even worse. Comes into play every drive. What Ive seen through 2 weeks is completely insane on flags.

Mycock explained the rationale behind all the flags. Apparently the intent of the refs is to call every borderline play in the preseason, and then examine the results before the regular season starts. Basically they're using the flag as a marker for them to look more closely at the game tapes and decide if they made the right call or not.

Hopefully this shit calms down when the games really count.

It's all on the defense too. They're supposed to call it on the O when they lower their head but there were a few plays last night, from both teams, where the O player lowered his head and nada. D guy does it and immediate flag.

Default The 1st called against us was a nice knifing tackle

and is just how the sport is played... They can't be calling those types of momentum plays.

This is going to ruin football this year if they don't adjust the rule. They went from one extreme to another. They need to find a middle ground.

IT'S ALSO PRESEASON FOR REFS AND NEW DUMBASS RULES. YOU'RE RIGHT. I THINK THE FLAGS WILL SLOW DOWN ONCE SEASON STARTS, BUT THEY ARE RUINING THE GAME, HAVE BEEN FOR A LONG TIME.
