In Response to Re: Its the Colts..how many bailout calls this week? : Regardless, ref calls in every sport are part of the game; calls go both ways, as a general rule; complaining about them is homerism, pure and simple. Corruption in general is not likely. On sport talk shows (WEEI, etc), if a caller complains about refs, they usually cut them off, giving this reason. As far as Goodell, there have been complaints about holding calls as long as I can remember; back in '69, I recall Gerry Philbin of the Jets saying "A high school kid can stop me if he's allowed to hold me". I also don't see you complaining about Patriot holds; are they pure?

Dude, how many calls that do not exist for NFL refs to call in the book, actually happen in the end zone in a Conf Title game, that you have seen?
You can't name one game in the histor of the NFL where a penatly was actually enforced even though it doesn't exist, because it's only happened ONCE.
NE @ Indy, 2nd half, 2006 AFC Title game IN THE END ZONE.
I am not talking about "oh, that was a terrible holding call or PI call".
We can debate those all day long, but you can't pretend something as smelly as a made up penalty that only exists in college or high school, is the same thing.
Because it's not. At all.
