    Exactly this.

    I feel a lot of times the refs like to feel like they influenced the game. For example, when a touchdown is being reviewed, everyone watching in the stands and at home are holding their breath for the officiating staff to make a ruling. In many cases, the game— or even the entire season is riding on that call.

    My theory is that they love that attention and purposely try to manufacture situations like that.

    The biggest clue is when the game-caller comment things like, "Not sure why they are reviewing this..."
