Okay, that game featured some of the strangest, and worst, officiating EVER


Was I the only one who noticed?

I don't think I've *ever* seen the officials pull so many strange and random rules from page 358 of the friggin rulebook. 

Although they were fairly equal opportunity with that crazy shit, in the end I think we got hosed worse, considering that holding call on the gunner that gave SD an automatic first down on the punt ... I have NEVER fucking seen that rule applied in my life ... along w/two others Hoculi pulled out his asses in the game, one benefitted us, one them.

Mitigating us getting screwed 2-1 in the obscure rule brigade, we were very lucky not to get painful penalties on three occasions:  1) Housh's attempted punch, 2) Sheppard kicking the ball when he missed an interception (thought for sure they'd flag him 15 for unsportsmanlike), and 3) Gio getting away w/pushing Jackson on his INT in the endzone.

All told, that was a BIZARRELY officiated game.  And it made me HATE Ed Hoculi even more than I did before.  That guy is just a lame official.

Anyways ... I'm just SO HAPPY right now that the team stepped up (esp. the D) and played at least somewhat to their potential (maybe all of it, considering who all was out there).  Even Sheppard didn't look too bad out there.  And I don't recall us dominating a 1/2 of football to THAT extreme since ... well, maybe the Denver game at the beginning of last year.  But even then, we didn't outgain them like 290 to 65.

My only disappointment was our failure to put them away, when we were SO dominant in the first half, but, hey ... typical Raiders, always have to give us a friggin heart-attack on their way to any W they ever get.

Remind me to ALWAYS pick the Raiders to get their asses kicked, like I did this week ... I did that on purpose, ya know ;)
