I think it's a lot of things combined.

They don't sell penalties, or dive like other teams do.
They don't play the politics and get in the ear of the refs to help influence the next call or non call.
They don't always go to the tough areas, and aren't one of the better passing teams to force the other team to pull you down.
They're the youngest team in the league so there's no respect factor in their favor.

I think these things all have to do with it, but most importantly the last one. Refs just don't give calls to young guys to try and teach them to stay on their feet, and for the same reason they call things tighter on them. Refs just aren't afraid to make bad calls or non call on young players, and the team is full of guys in that position.

It's pretty shameful though that the discrepancy is that high. Especially when the playoff race will be decided by one point, or even a tie breaker, and the refs have screwed them in that many games this year just because they're young.
