Look, this wasn’t a single 50/50 judgement call. This was a series of egregious calls that not just affected, but flat out determined the outcome of a very big game.
In my opinion, this wouldn’t fix everything, but the NFL could simply suspend/fine these officials, but also why not give the Lions a compensatory draft pick for next year??? This could really go a long way with their fan base to get some trust back as well as acknowledge that there is a problem.
Instead, I will wait for their typical Wednesday apology and nothing else. I really think a compensatory pick would be something to look at in these cases and it could range from round to round depending on how jacked up the calls were. If the team was in last place in week 17 and got screwed, give them a 6th rounder. Something like last night, maybe a 3rd rounder. Something the Saints dealt with that cost them a trip to the Super Bowl? Probably a 1st rounder.
Anyway, just an idea, but we all know the NFL and the owners do not give a F about the fans or their product.
