    Cime Et Tu, officials? Why the screwjob by the zebras?

    I'm mad about what happened to our offense. I'll accept the bad form (to a degree) by Nolan Carroll and those penalties, but Buffalo's D got away with murder and that PI on Hartline was ridiculously weak. If Hartline would've actually pushed that guy he would've been picking turf out his helmet.
    There was a brutal no-call when a DB slammed into our receiver about an 1/8 note beat before the ball got there. That's PI all god damn day. Miami had momentum, Tanny was on fire at that point, and that call killed our game.

    At the end of the day though, Tanny threw a lemon on that last ball. Just plain innacurate. He stepped into it and everything and the ball came out of his had wobbly and errant.

    It isn't the officials fault that the Dolphins aren't a great team. If they didn't put themselves in the positions they end up in, none of what the refs have done is relevant.

    This is not true, Do you think the score would be a little different if those penalties were not called on our Defense and were called on Buffalo's? Yes we did play bad but bad calls by a ref can change a game. It is easy to say we shouldnt put ourselves in position to leave it up to the refs but lets be honest, every game you are not going to blow someone out, there will be close games where you play bad.

    It is relevant. We seem to be getting the short end of the stick for awhile now. I do agree to an extent you make your own luck. I wish someone on this defense could just catch a ball!

    We're getting the short end of the stick because we're making piss poor decisions on the football field.

    At what point do people stop blaming other people and begin looking in the mirror and seeing the real problem.

    Sick and tired of the Dolphins playing sloppy and then reading here that it's someone else's fault.

    If they play poorly, it's THEIR fault. It's not the refs fault that Nolan Carroll can't cover anyone deep without holding on to them.

    Not the refs fault that Jimmy Wilson dropped a pick in the end zone that led to a field goal.

    Not the refs fault that we allowed McKelvin to house one against us.

    Stop blaming officials and be accountable for your own stupidity on the field of play. Jake Long got WORKED last night. Not the officials fault.

    That makes absolutely no sense what so ever. Not related what so ever.

    You like to bash people for bashing the refs, but these are legit concerns that don't happen to other teams with the frequency they are happening with us. At what point do you blame the refs? Do they have to physically take the ball away from us before you see how bad they are boning us week in and week out? It is always said that football is a game of inches. The refs are taking inches away from us nearly every week and it kills us. I'm not saying that the Dolphins would be undefeated if not for the bad calls. We are a thin team and need work. Which is exactly why we need the game to be called fairly, and when we get drive killing BS penalties it is more crushing to us then some other teams.

    Sick and tired of the Dolphins playing sloppy and then reading here that it's someone else's fault.
    We are too, but you're confusing our beef with the refs with our thin roster.

    If they play poorly, it's THEIR fault. It's not the refs fault that Nolan Carroll can't cover anyone deep without holding on to them.
    Of course not. It's not the punters fault that he didn't get a flag when the defender clearly hit him.

    Not the refs fault that Jimmy Wilson dropped a pick in the end zone that led to a field goal.
    Of course not. It's not Hartline's fault that he got elbows in the head like trying to make a catch.

    Not the refs fault that we allowed McKelvin to house one against us.
    Uh, yeah it is because Fields got hit on the kick which is supposed to be against the rules.

    Stop blaming officials and be accountable for your own stupidity on the field of play. Jake Long got WORKED last night. Not the officials fault.
    We will blame the refs and the players the same. Long got worked last night, that is true. But so did Wake, by the refs, and that is true.

    Conspiracy theory guy right here. The world is out to get him.

    The Buffalo player was blocked into Fields. Those are always non-calls.

    Unless it's us. Pretty sure we got called for holding in the Indy game becase our guy got blocked into a Colts player.

    This team is in disarray at the moment. The refs do not pass protect, open running lanes, and throw and catch.
    As much as I agree with the notion that we getting a lot of bad calls lately, those calls are not the reason we lost.
