The one (former) ref that everyone trusts thinks the Chiefs game had bad refs

I’m not going to spend too much time ranting about the refs from the Chiefs playoff loss to the Titans. Everyone knows what it is. You know why we’re calling this The Forward Progress Game.

We shared referee Jeff Triplette’s comments after that game and his (lack of) explanation for the calls. You can go places to find breakdowns that show why his calls were bad but I just want to point out one man’s opinion on this.

FOX’s Mike Pereira, who used to be in charge of the referees, is universally regarded as the best of the on-TV referee. People trust what he says, which is rare for a ref these days. And he thinks the referees sucked on Saturday.
