[QUOTE]Gotta agree with Dogg. The Pats get their share of calls, it's just human nature to only remember the times your team got scrawed (IYHO). If you could somehow determine how many times each team was the benificiary of bad calls and how many times it was the malificiary (probably not a word, but it makes sense to me!), I don't doubt that the Colts have benefited on average. But not by much! There have been plenty of bad calls in Colt opponents' favor, and many of those have kept games close.

We don't ever
hear the NFL making retractions and apologies for st#pid nonexistant penalties like Illegal faceguarding. BUT then, What could We do for more subjective penalties, Like Pass Interference?
Well...IF I had my
way though, I'd make some sort of 'rule committee' (but I'd call it something different...not sure?), In which they'd govern the fair practice of calling games and making changes to it's play. The difference is, Where many wouldn't put people affiliated with certain teams on this fictional "Committee" because their might be biases affecting the Official's Calls and The League Changes to help that Member's Own Club, I'd personally take Their vast knowledge of the game and Their own word of putting The overall NFL and the League's other franchises ahead of their own as the More Important considerations regarding WHO would be on it...The more and higher ranking member of individual clubs, The BETTER
, I say.
But since, There is no such 'governing body' of totally objective overseers who would ALWAYS make sure that the right call was made, The only thing I could EVER hope for as a Fan, would be IF
: I could somehow
tally these referee calls, add up the Penalties and their Yards through the course of each game, heck even The Season, AND THEN...idk, maybe perhaps Compare Each of The Teams' through the course of a longer period, years, even heck, a decade. MAYBE
Then, We as fans could somehow come to a sort of objective determination through many Numerical Laws of Averages and Large Numbers, IF one of the teams and NO others were ALWAYS
at or very close to the bottom for years and years and years. BUT, You're Right, Since this is a Complete Impossibility right now, We simply have to conclude that ALL Teams get some bad calls, some good calls...none more and NONE Less.
