    Phantom PI and other calls

    It is deplorable that the The Fish would get screwed by a call the Steelers were gifted, helping achieve a victory. Other games were affected as well.

    The rash of phantom PI calls has reared its ugly head again too.

    The league should do something about these games with gifted calls that absolutely are erroneous at best and totallly affect the outcome of games.

    Just as bad was the hose job done on the Bills when the refs stood there for 5 seconds after forward progress was stopped and allowed 3 Ravens players to tug at the ball until they finally got it.

    jbolted, i assume that your talking about the PI call at the end of the first half that got called against the chargers.  i know the announcers didnt see it, but trust me it was there.  ive learned that announcers are morons and i can call a game as well as them.  the defender totaly impeded the receivers path to the ball, and was not looking for the pass.  textbook PI

    All kidding aside, it's becoming more and more difficutl to watch NFL games and not believe that officials go into contests with preconceived notions about who is going to win. Blown calls on the field in real time are one thing, but reviewable calls that come back completely wrong -- and covered with barely coherent jabberwock explanations (as happened in the Steelers/Dolphins and Vikings/Packers games -- directly affecting those outcomes) -- are unacceptable.

    Jbolted, do us all a favor, particularly yourself, and find another drum to beat and another room in which to beat it.  Questionable calls have been part of competitive athletics ever since the first official donned a striped shirt and whistle. 

    Your team made too many mistakes and the Pats took advantage of them - that's what determined the outcome.

    JBolted - you are on the wrong site to whine about your team getting hosed by bad PI calls - have you ever watched the Pats play Indy?

    The other play you are complaining about looked like a lateral to me in real time - I was screaming at the TV for the Pats to pick that ball up as soon as it hit the ground

    Jbolt comes here because he knows this is the only board that deals half way in reality.  He needs to come clean though.  SD is just a stupid team.  Poorly coached.  How can folks leave the ball on the ground?  How can teams turn the ball over so many times?  There is a reason why SD has a losing record and it's not because of phantom PI calls.  It's the stupid play of SDs players.

    I believe Miami got screwed though.

    Did the Colts play last weekend? Thought they were the only team to get favorable PI calls.

    What JBolt and the media heads don't want to admit is that you cannot reliably judge the position of the ball using a camera shot that's way up in the air, way downfield and at an extreme angle to the side view needed to make a good judgment. The officials are on the same vertical level with and directly off to the side of the play so their view is much more realistic.

    I love skrewwing the Chargers. I wish they were good enough to make the Playoffs so we could skkreww them again at home. Next time we meet Brady has a couple ruffing the passer calls saved up for you. He didn't have to use them up this past week because the Chargers handed us victory in  so many other ways.

    Agreed - Miami got hosed big time - the refs should have sorted out the pile on the ball

    I'll back you up on this one, although I didn't get to watch the game.  Except in the most egregious instances of pass interference or illegal contact, I'm all in favor of letting the players decide the outcome.  Let them bump.  Let them jostle for position.  Don't make rules that can so randomly favor the offense a subjective call that a referee can bust out whenever he sees fit.  I'd even accept pass interference and illegal contact if it was called consistently across the board, but the Colts bump opposing receivers 10-15 yards downfield with regularity - watch their corners, who have the shallower flats zones along the sidelines usually.

    Re: Phantom PI and other calls

    Is the game rigged?

    Consider which teams won the past five Super Bowls.  Did it appear to you that they were given a huge, suspicious boost at times by the officiating, either in that game or their other games of their Super Bowl seasons?

    Ever notice how teams that buy new stadiums or make major renovations often go to the Super Bowl soon before or soon after the stadium is (re)constructed?  Do you think that will happen to the Jets this year?  I've already seen them get a ton of mysterious calls this season.  They own their last game on a major bogus call.

    Did you notice the Saints get a bunch of help (phantom P/I's all season) in the regular season last year? 

    What about the Bears?  The Colts?  The Steelers?  The Cards? They all either renovated their stadiums or built new ones in the recent past. They all went to the Super Bowl. Even the Pats.


    We know the NBA is or was fixed for years.  Same with most college sports. We hear former bookies claim they'd fixed NFL games.  Why should we not think the the NFL is fixing games?  How else can you explain the Bills/Ravens game?  How else can you explain the Steelers/'Fins game?  How else can you explain the Packers/Vikings game?

    I've written this during the past off-season: This may very well be my last season watching the NFL. I don't watch the NBA any more because I was convinced it was fixed (before it was revealed it was indeed fixed).  I never watched wrestling because it is fixed.  I stopped watching many Olympic events because they were fixed (boxing, gymnastics, figure skating, basketball).  I don't see why I should treat the NFL differently.

    You weren't saying this when crying that the Pats made the 2 yds they needed vs. the colts last year.  Funny how those tables can turn, isn't it?

    Re: Phantom PI and other calls

    Laz, thanks for the stats.  We all know the truth about the Colts.  Heck, I been in California watcing games in sportsbars and in Chicago doing the same, and all the fans talked about how the Colts get all those funny calls their way.  But the numbers you give make it concrete.

    It has to make one wonder what kind of career stats Manning would really have, considering that he would have had a lot more losses, statlled drives and 3-and-outs without the help for the Colts fomr the officiating.

    And Indy, from what I could tell, that was an imcomplete forward pass by Rivers.  I plan to watch it again and follow the shadow of the ball.  Hey, ever since the Pats won their thrid rings, it seems the league has come out against them on the officiating - this play seemed like an exception.  But it also looked like the second onside kick didn't go 10 yards before it was touched by a Charger, either.  I want to view that one again, as well. But there is no question Faulk had that first down and the Pats had sealed the game last year.  The spot was insane. And it was not the only bad call of the second half of that game.  Remember the crazy, long-yardage P/I call? (A Colt's staple item, n'est pas?) Your team can't seem to win without help. And this year, I have seen them get the same ole' help and they are barely winning.  Can't wait to see what the officials do when they play the Pats.

    Re: Phantom PI and other calls

    I just re-watched the lateral play. It was a lateral - no question.  JBolt, Indy, look for yourselves:http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2010102410/2010/REG7/patriots@chargers/watch

    In addition, you can see that the onside kick did go 10 yards before it was touched and recovered by the Charger, so that was the right call on the field.

    Seems like a pretty fair game was called for two teams that both have a rep for getting jobbed by the officials.  Jbolt, you were wrong about Nance/Nantz and you are wrong about the lateral.

    The game this week in SD had bad calls, but, nowhere near as bad the Steeler/Fish end of game. Its a joke, the refs are being bought by Rooney, it appears anyway. Ask Ed H.
