    This is incredible. I've never seen anything like this in my life.

    Tom Curran is breaking this story.  Coaches and players said it was "second level players only".

    We got hosed, folks.  We got hosed.   

    Back in March, Dean Blandino, VP of Officiating, cited "second level".  I was right again. Spygate was a witch hunt and now again the NFL has been caught LYING.

    FLAT OUT LYING and trying to cover for their officials in games!

    Spygate and now this. We've been made out to be an example of without Goodell simply picking up the phone to communicate.

    Now this has affected the outcome of our game today. Kraft and BB should protest in case this has any postseson ramifications down the road.

    How embarrassing is it that a commissioner is signing off on rule changes where his own refs don't even know or are now being told to call it on NE, because other jealous teams are using BB's in-line stunts on FGs and PATs as examples for that rule to be applied to the point we got set up by a ref in OT during the week a memo was sent JUST to refs?

    Why don't teams get notified if there is something not legal?

     



    LOL.  Like the Tuck rule.  No one knew it existed.  Karma.




    Zip it troll. The pats got shafted on the tuck rule call, not gifted. Learn the game fool.

    Of course there is. You don't call that kind of BS to decide a game at the end, unless something underhanded is afoot.




    Seems everyone else that thinks rules should not be enforced at certain points in too afraid to answer this. How about you?

    If the pushing resulted in the kick being blocked, should the rule have been enforced?  how about offsides?  Can that be called in that situation?  Running into the kicker? 




    Is this hard for you to comprehend? It's really not that difficult.

    In the playoffs, and in the deciding moments of games, you let them play. If a violation is clear/blatant you call it. You don't decide the game with a flag on a tickey tack BS call.

    Got it now?

    Hell, they could call offensive holding on virtually every play. Learn the game.

    See what I mean?  Seems like you have the same genitals as the rest.  Female genitals.  Pretty basic question.




    See what you mean? How could I, you blather inane BS with your every word. (see above)

    Re: Curran Is Reporting the NFL Edited Rule Today

    My take: 

    The rule itself is rather strange; I understand that it's a safety consideration but it remains, in my mind, strange.  The practice of assisting a teammate with a push on both sides of the ball has been going on as long as I can remember. 


    Rather odd time to enforce it apparently for the first time this far along in the season.  I'm sure it's happened a number of times thus far this year.  To enforce it at a critical point in the game when it had exactly zip effect on the outcome of the play does not help clarify things.

    Kraft will get an explanation although we may never know what that explanation will be.  BB will be his usual effusive self about the matter.

    When they ask him about it today in his EEI interview he will say... you have to ask the officials about it they made the call.

    You can't allow a game to be decided like that....

    The more Goodell allows football to morph into Basketball, where there officials control the outcome, the more the great game of football will be tarnished.

    Four pages of complaining about a bad call. I don't know if if it was corruption or just flat out incompetence. But it did not cost the Patriots the game.

     

    The Jets are a joke. If they are in a position to beat you late in a game, you deserve to lose. This game shouldn't have been close. The Pats played like garbage and they got what was coming to them.

     

    Their offensive line was terrible and Brady seems to get worse by the week. The Pats need to start looking for his replacement  in the offseason.  I appreciate everything he's done for the Pats. But the Tom Brady of the mid 2000s is long gone. Nobody wants to talk about it, they just want to make excuses. But Brady's play is making things very difficult for us.

    This threads about the call, if you want to talk about other bs go see another thread.

    Bottom line is why hasn't it been called before ?  Stunts with linemen on the line happen all the time.

    About that call.  It was the right call, but I'm not convinced a call like that should be called in that OT or during the last couple of minutes of a game. Not for that type of rule/penalty.

    And, no, it's not a conspiracy.

    Based on the rules a correct call. To your point over 400 extra points and FG's to date in the NFL and this is the first time this is called. It is the equivilant of calling pass interference on a hail mary pass at the end of a half or the end of the game.

    Wrong. what the Patriots were supposed to stop playing when they realized they weren't going to blow the Jets out? Every week each team knows that it can be dog fight and you try to overcome mistakes and put yourself in position to win in the end and that's exactly what they did! And then the outcome is decided by a colossally bad call. That's why there is four pages of frustration.

    Again, not true. Based on the CHANGED rule, fresh last week, not the one released to the public by the NFL at NFL.com.

    You keep saying that, but it's false.  

    Can you name a time a league has changed the rule mid seasons and nto even told coaches or players?

    Are you denying the wording of the rule was changed last week, which is what triggered the fresh memo to the refs?

    That action had to come from somewhere. It's becoming pretty apparent, it's the Ryan Brothers who are involved in this.

     

    \


    Based on the way the rule is currently written it was interpreted correctly. I was pointing out that it was the 1st time this year this particular penalty was called in the league. Everything I posted is factual... No?
