PS: I am not a football fan and do not watch this sport, but if there is some major problem of referees not seeing what happened, that is a problem with the referees. It would seem the issues are pretty cut and dried, the lines are clearly marked, dropped footballs are visible, 'unnecessary roughness' has to be pretty obvious. So it seemed to me that MO's whole 'shouldn't they tell on themselves' issue was a giant RED HERRING, designed to assume this happens all the time and Christian athletes are letting it slide in order to win. I question that assumption. I wished, Hugh, that you had called him on that. Is this a real problem in football: Refs who make stupid calls? Then that should have been addressed, since it is the REFS job.
