Coleman appeared upset with the Bills' sideline as he met with coach Sean McDermott, other officials and members of the Bills' training staff after the play.

Torbert is the absolute worst.

 

Here he is fist bumping after a Broncos TD vs. the Bills - never seen anything like this.

Those iffy flags from the 2014 season (see recap below) left me fuming for days. This was the season we finished 9-7 and this game and the raiders game could have easily gone the other way and we woulda finished 11-5. Even one of those wins might have won us the tiebreak at 10-6 over the Ravens. 

 

After that stupid 2004 final game loss to the backup steelers, I think 2014 was the season I was most upset about regarding missing the playoffs.

I was going by the name Coleman, but sure, now he holds a grudge...

The infamous 3rd and <kitty> game where Orton slid instead of diving for it on 3rd and 1.  I despise Kyle Orton.

it’s funny reading what these officials’ day jobs are.  A lot of them probably go into the office the next day and fire off some emails ending in “please advise, thanks.”

Does Pittsburg State have a degree in officiating?  Such a weird coincidence.

This made me laugh.  Get that email phrase all of the time.  It drives me crazy.  I avoid that wording like the plague.

Torbert was/is someone very high up in the company that built the patriots stadium. I have no idea how he’s allowed to ref games.

I guess Clete B. Is not as bad as some of the others if we are playing a random team but I have always thought of him as a Brady / Belichick fanboy.

Can we get some media guy to interview the officials and remind them that John Brown's alma mater is Pittsburg State?

Honestly I don't know why some of them even have day jobs, aren't they getting paid out the ass to ref?

I dont recall this. Does anyone else?  How did a coach hurt a ref and why was said ref upset with the Bills sideline?  And how did the Bills get an unsportsmanlike conduct call on that play, the Bills were on offense.

There is a line that players and coaches cannot cross that allows the officials to run up and down the sideline without running into anyone.  In this instance the players and/or coaches probably crossed the line and he ended up colliding with them because of it, hence the 15 yard penalty.

Yes i know about the line but seeking someone that recalls this play and knows what actually happened.
