    THIS GAME WAS NOT THE BEST GAME DELTA HAS PLAYED BUT HAVING TO DEAL WITH BOGUS CALLS AGAINST THEM IN THE LAST QUARTER AND COMPLETE NON CALLS AGAINST THE OTHER TEAM IS A SMACK IN THE FACE AGAINST ALL THE GOOD REFS OUT THERE. THERE SHOULD BE A WAY TO HOLD THESE REFS ACCOUNTABLE FOR INFLUENCING THE GAME THAT WAY. IT WAS THE SAME SITUATION WHEN DELTA PLAYED STEAMBOAT IN WEEK 2. DELTA MADE THEIR MISTAKES BUT, THE REFS ACTIONS AND NON ACTIONS HAVE TO BE DELT WITH. THANKS
