    That's funny coming from you.  In the past few days I have read a number of posts witten by people running you down for what you write in your posts.  AZPAT showed that same attitude repeatedly in this string to people here that you have shown to people on other strings, so it's not surprising that you would jump to his defense.

    Actually, did you even read AZPATS posts at this string before reading mine so you would know why I wrote what I wrote?  I wasn't the first or only one suggesting he takes a chill.  Or are you just reacting reflexively?

    In Response to Re: Ed Hochuli Throws a Late Flag After Watching Jumbotron? : Some might actually feel that the Chargers not stopping the TD and two-point conversion is what really cost them the game. It was the exact same play on 4th down for the TD as it was 1 play later for the 2-point conversion. Sure, a bad call got them there, but the Chargers still had plenty of opportunity to prevent the loss. And didn't.

    I really hate when people excuse things this way.     Let's take a hypothetical...    sprinters starting a 100 m race.  One guy gets a slow start out of the blocks, then 50m down the guy to his right PUNCHES HIM IN THE FACE.   

    Do we say 'well yeah the guy punched him but so what.... but if he hadn't gotten a slow start he still could have won if he ran at the speed of light' ? ??? ? ??  

    Or if the person setting up hurdles placed an extra one on one person's lane  .... do we say ''yeah but he should have just overcome and done more than everyone else. He didn't so it's his fault he lost' ???

    You do not BLAME someone for losing an unfair contest.  It's ignorant. It's not the victim's fault.  You praise them if they triumph, you BLAME the people who made the match unfair if they don't.  All athletes deserve the opportunity to compete in a fair, honest, consistent environment. 

    Here's another hypothetical for you.  People state all the time the importance of home field advantage, of fan support, of 'momentum' in games and how it affects athletes' psyches.  Isn't it possible that a team gets so deflated after a ref screwes them that they cannot ocmpose themselves for the subsequent plays and perform poorly as a result ?  Doesn't that make just a 'little' sense ?

    I don't normally suggest this ... actually I never have.

    If you value your sanity and reasonable people , then just 'ignore' AZPAT. I excusedtheir poststo myself when it was in good nature but frankly I'm thinking they have some serious mental deficiencies at this point.

    I am considering it.  I have one guy on "ignore" here.  Could be three.

    Did you notice how he jumped all over my comments on Connolly's return, completely ignoring that I suggested it was a missed call that went to the Pats' favor.  Reading comprehension is not his forte'.  Disrespecting is.

    Oh, BTW, in case you did not get the memo, we are not allowed to comment on any aspect of the game of which we were not previously, professionally employed. So if you were or are an NFL running back, you can only comment on things pertaining to running backs. If you are/were an NFL game official, you may only comment on game officiating. But you are not entitled to opinions on trades or the draft.  Etc., etc., etc. Apparently, AZPAT has played every position in the NFL, been an NFL game official, owned a team, and lead the players' union, too. We should all bow to her majesty

    You don't even know what a troll is. You just fire off insults without rhyme or reason, is that right?

    I am not strong on the X's and O's.  I am not strong on contract terminology.   But I am pretty confident in my knowledge of the rules.  I routinely catch talking heads making mistakes in reference to the rules, so I guess my knowledge of them must be pretty decent. I know the holding rules. I know how they are realistically applied. But since I don't care to satisfy your questions about authenticity, I am not going to type 300 words to detail holding. Especially for people like you who live to to push and bully people on the internet.

    You like questions?  Why don't you ask yourself why you are alone on this board on this issue?  Don't be fooled by Davedsone.  He agrees in bullying along with you, but he never wrote that he thought this game was evenly called, at least not anywhere I have read about this. He just likes having at least one friend in his sand box and you are it.

    And since you are alone in your opinion, maturely ask yourself a second question: could it be that you are wrong?

    Maybe you two don't get it.  You are not liked here. If you care to change that fact, start by treating people with respect, even when you disagree with them.  Go back and read the way you ran people down mindlessly and ask yourself, without bias, if that is the way you would want people to communicate with you.  Just because you had a bad childhood doesn't make it right for you to figuratively knock heads here.  An honorable person will learn from his/her mistakes.

    Re: Ed Hochuli Throws a Late Flag After Watching Jumbotron?

    We should also separate intent from negligence.   I don't think the came was necessarily intentionally one-sided.. nor do I think any of his poor calls from other games were necessarily intentional.  But intentional or not they affect the outcome of the game.   There's a lot of random things that can go wrong for a team during a game like the weather, crowd, cleets, etc.     All those things a team has to deal with because it's reasonable that you can't control them.  You ignore them and move on.

    Officiating should not be one of those things.  When it's broken it needs to be fixed.  Teams should not have to compete on an uneven playing field whether it's intentional or not.
