Our latest referee breakdown shows assessed penalties, not total penalties. We’ll stick with this format until we get access to reliable information for declined penalties. The chart does show that Ron Winter is the only referee without a replay reversal against his crew this season. That’s a pretty good record for the midpoint of a season. We’re showing only one reversal in seven challenges for both Tony Corrente and Jeff Triplette. At the other end, the chart shows five reversals for Gerry Austin’s crew. Scott Green has been challenged a league-high 13 times by our count, but his reversal rate (.308) is lower than the league average. See the full breakdown below.

    Do referees get “dinged” for reversals, i.e. does this count against them when it comes time to put together playoff and SB crews?

    something is wrong in the world if Sando did not dress up as either a referee or a zebra for Halloween.

    Great statistics! I ran the statistics for weeks 1-4 against the statistics for weeks 5-8 to see if there is a correlation between the reversal rate in weeks 1-4 and in weeks 5-8 and there is a positive correlation (0.1629) between the two sets. So this suggests that certain referees will have higher reversal rates than others over the long-run (and that it wasn’t just a statistical anomaly over the first few weeks).

    I guess we’ll see at the end of the season if the first-half trends hold up!
