He pretty much said that it was a bad call -- whether it was a first down or not is not what was reviewed. He likely stays away from plays that aren't reviewed, b/c unlike you, he understands that a snap judgment that a ref makes will often be debatable. He probably also understands that you could turn a camera on any player and find some uncalled penalties along the way. You have NO idea how refs are or are not held accountable. One thing is for sure. You don't hold someone accountable by calling them out on tv. These guys are accountable as you don't see refs who make errors in the post season - that is clearly performance-based accountability.
