The thing is (save for the first challenge), it wasn't Boger's fault - the blown calls were the fault of his crew, not him directly.

Nonetheless, an absolute travesty that should be fully investigated.

He's in charge of his crew, and EVERY game he referees is full of bad calls. At some point you can't keep blaming his crew and you have to start pointing fingers at him. He's been bad for years, yet the NFL keeps him around.

Jerome Boger is a ****ing incompetent *****, and the fact that the league employs clowns like him and Goodell is a huge part of why I'm done with the NFL the moment Brady and Belichick retire. But this is what you get when you leave the game in his hands. You gotta win every Boger-officiated game by two touchdowns because it's a 50/50 chance that he's taking one of them off the board.
I hear ya, im done with the nfl after tom and bill are gone

If Kraft doesn’t throw a stink after that disgrace of a game, with the refs costing the Pats multiple touchdowns, I will have no respect for him as an owner. Even worse, if the league doesn’t take steps to correct this, I will assume the games are fixed and refuse to watch any more games.

Today’s game was a total embarrassment for the NFL. That game was given to the Chiefs.
Bend over bob won't say a thing, hes forgotten where he came from

I think we would have won if the refs hadn’t blown 3 or 4 egregious calls, but I don’t believe any conspiracy theories like “the NFL told the refs to call the fumble down as the play was happening” or “the NFL assigned this crew to the game specifically to screw the Patriots”, which, if proven true, would be the biggest scandal in the history of American sports.

Jerome Boger was the head ref in the greatest sham Super Bowl of all time...the Ray Lewis Retirement Benefit Super Bowl. I covered all the ground that needs to be covered vis a vis this cretinous catspaw of Stooldell way back then. I EXPECTED this crew to be incompetent today and they didn't disappoint.

Hard to remember a game where so many calls were unambiguously wrong. Patriots had a TD taken off the board, a likely TD (Gilmore likely scores), an extremely important third down that was inexplicably marked a yard further, the grossly blatant DPI on Sanu (that was shockingly obvious). At minimum (and it is the VERY minimum) any one of those calls are correctly made (IMHO he did not get the first down) and there is enough time on the clock for the Patriots to get one more shot. And that's not counting the calls that were up for interpretation but sucked (Chung holding IMHO).
I think one of the dipsh!t talking heads had it right. In a billion dollar league to have that kind of clear, unambiguous incompetence repeated so much is shocking, And anyone who things that did not, again at very very minimum, give the Patriots another chance (which is a BFD) is part of the problem.

You forgot a blatant DPI on Dorsett (the 2nd one).

Officials are going to make bad calls, but the nice thing about the controversial plays......they were situations that are controllable by replay if handled correctly by officials.

officials are literally told to give the benefit of the doubt to the situation that would create an automatic replay (like let a turnover play out or call a borderline call a td).......and yet they couldn’t even get that right

This may actually have been the first game ever where we wanted to challenge a huge call but didn’t have any challenges available

Don’t get me wrong the calls still suck big time....but it’s still concerning that most of our offense today was trick plays

Yeah can’t remember being out of challenges before. Seems like a dumb rule that we lose one even if we win.

Dreith had one bad call. This game had multiples.
Tunescribe, you must not have watched the infamous Ben Dreith game. Today's game was pretty bad, but the Raiders playoff game was absolutely brutal. Patriots defensive linemen starting off plays with their shirts tucked in, the same plays ending with their jerseys pulled out from holds by the Raiders offensive linemen, went on for the entire game. The 4th quarter saw Russ Francis get both his arms pinned to his body by LB Phil Villipiano as he was trying to catch a key third down pass late in the 4th when the Patriots were trying to run down the clock. The officials were all looking at the play and gutlessly swallowed their whistles on what should have been one of the easiest DPI calls ever. Earlier in the game Francis had his nose broken on a cheap shot that wasn't called. Then the Ben Dreith phantom roughing the passer call on Sugar Bear Hamilton was just the last of the long list of bad calls and non-calls. That game still remains the worst reffed game I've seen in 50+ years of watching the NFL.

I hate these whinny threads. Patriots offense wasn't good enough to win. Period.
Exactly which game were you and Jerome Bogers crew watching? The offense wasn’t great - but the officiating was catastrophic, and arguably blatant.
