NFL officiating crew in controversial Lions-Cowboys game may be downgraded ahead of playoffs

Quote

Brad Allen and his crew drew the ire of the NFL world when a Lions go-ahead 2-point conversion late in the game was negated over a penalty. The discrepancy came over which offensive lineman reported as eligible. Taylor Decker said he was the player who reported as eligible but Dan Skipper was deemed to be the person.

"This has generated an awful lot of reaction around the league as you might expect. And I think teams have found fault with both sides here," Schefter said on the program. "They think the Lions tried to trick the Cowboys and instead tricked the officials by sending three offensive linemen over to the official when they say only one lineman should’ve been reporting. 

"And then the officials did miss the call. Brad Allen, got the wrong player reporting. And that’s been a continuation of a string of high-profile misses from the Brad Allen crew this year."

Quote

"You remember earlier in the year, there was pass interference with (Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver) Marquez Valdes-Scantling that was not called – the same Brad Allen crew in this game where the (Green Bay Packers) defensive back goes over his shoulder. There was the pass interference call at Atlanta with the Saints that was not called when clearly it was pass interference that influenced that game. This was a roughing the passer penalty when (Cleveland Browns linebacker) Za’Darius Smith was fined but it was not called. And there’s one thread that ties together all those calls – it is the same Brad Allen crew time and time again."

I am not sure what to say about this.

What people fail to mention about that Packers game is that BS unnecessary roughness call against us. Mahomes was hit inbounds, but the flag was thrown anyway. It's been an insane year for refs this year, and that exact crew has been in the center of a lot of controversy.

DO they even care about the game (football)? OR, are they always jerks on calls?
