Like most games, there were some bad calls, and some bad non-calls. Matthews may not have deserved that particular call, but there was a blatant roughing earlier when Wilson was was flattened after being hit from behind that no ref seemed to notice.
To your point, the lack of consistency with the refereeing is what bothers me the most. It's a billion dollar business, maybe they can afford full time referees?
I always hear the argument for full time referees when there is a poor call that matters in a game that matters. We obviously don't have any data to confirm, but I never see how a guy not having a weekday job will make him a better official on the weekends.
