    McCourty PI and the state of refs in the NFL

    Did anyone else notice that Greg Olsen was holding McCourty's arm when McCourty was called for the PI?

    Putting my team bias aside, the refs are turning this league into a war of flags. Offenses, as we all know, are given way too much by them. When you can have a receiver grabbing a DB and the offense gets a first down, that is bad. When you have a clean, hard sack against a QB (Brees) and it is called a personal foul, that is bad. When you have penalties seemingly being called on a whim, like the field goal vs Jets, that is bad. Then, when a LB completely takes the receiver out of the play by bear hugging him it isn't called? What are teams supposed to do? There is zero consistency here!

    This league is turning into a joke. The NFL needs to admit that it has a problem and do something to fix it. Fine refs like you fine defensive players. Do something! What a joke.

    Destroying the integrity of the game...My attitude is all penaltys personal fouls, and PI shoulld be reviewable. McCourty call last night was disgrace - hes waving 2 arms, reciever waving one as other is hugging McCourty

    Yup. What else could McCourty have done? He realized what was happening, threw his arms up in hopes to signal to the refs that he's not at fault. He had the position. Panthers reciever ran right at him and grabbed his arm. Would not be surprised if that was the original intention of that Panthers reciever.

    "It's third down, lets see if we can draw a penalty on the Pats D". Fooled the refs and the drive got extended.

    Yeah that was tough call to end the game with Brady getting credited w an INT in the end zone BUT in the 1st half the pats got a phantom holding call that went FOR them in the red zone. I believe they got a new set of downs as a result.Unfotunately your RB fumbled soon after and turned it over.

     Funny nobody, not one pats fan, has brought up that little ditty today. SHOCKER!

    NOPE- you are all crying in your Crybaby soup.

    Can you imagine the call went the other way and the pats won the game. You would all be saying the complete opposite of what you've been whining about all day! And you know it!!

    How is year 44 treating you? Must still sting something awful that BB left the Jets and won 3 Superbowls with a division rival?

    There is a side effect going on too.  With all the crap that refs are calling it seems players are pushing it even further almost daring the officials to call it.

    like that last play... All the mauling was going on right in the officials face , the flag came out timidly and then was picked up.   So the side effect of more crappy calls is more crap goes uncalled too...  Vicious downward spiral .  It would be interesting to see a game where all judgment calls were reviewed. .

    in last nights game it would have been 1st and goal it the 1.  For 1 play...!  Much more fitting way for this one to end...imo.

    coolade- There is a thread started by yours truly announcing FREE Crybabay Soup-Want some?

    The whole place has been feeding on it all day. It must be delicious because many are coming back for seconds and thirds. I think Cc ate so much that he purged then went back for more!
