    Players that simulate throwing a flag

    Chris Mortensen- "Competition committee could discuss players like Tom Brady who over-dramatize being hit or simulate throwing a flag"

    The "simulation of throwing a flag" happens everywhere on the field...That would be an interesting rule to try and enforce!

    So Reggie Wayne?
    Dallas Clark?
    Peyton Manning?
    Hines Ward?
    Phillip Rivers?
    Brett Favre?
    And just about every other skill position player?

    I don't think I've seen a game against Indianapolis where both the receivers and the fans DIDN'T beg for pass interference calls...

    Not only that, but the Suggs' attempt was pretty much the same as the one that ended Brady's season last year. Of course he's going to react like that.  If the worst that happens is Brady making the flag motion, big freaking deal.  They would've thrown that flag even if he hadn't made the motion.

    Surely the NFL has the good sense to let some of that stuff go.  In the NBA, on pretty much every single play, players are in the refs' grills. In MLB, a lot of Umps tolerate a lot of gruff after a questionable K call.  In sports, this stuff is just part of the game.

    Yep as well as anti-Pats fans too. Here's the directions you need udogg to go to the Colts site http://www.indystar.com/colts

    Getting back to the thread right now they'd have to throw the flag just about every other play. Also watching the pregame show I saw both of the calls against the Ravens last week but why don't they show the Wright infraction against Flacco. Was hoping one network would have pointed that out.

    Will this include pointing at other players .....(False Start on the offense, Offsides by the Defense, etc)

    Could you imagine all the laundry on the field if this takes place. Home Team 44 penalties, Road team 49 penalties, time of game 7 hours and 22 minutes.

    I think that would be crazy as I do penalizing a player who simulates throwing a flag!

    One more step toward the No Fun League.  The coach can't wear a suit, you can't make a snow angel, your touchdown dance can't be shared by your teammates in certain circumstances, you can't hide a marker pen in the goalpost and autograph the football, you can't use the football as a prop, you can't punch out Channing Crowder, you can't drop your pants at the fans, you can't go after the fan in the stands who threw a penny at you, and now you can't clue an official that he should make a call.

    Just an honest assessment of the team whose GM changed the rules so his team could succeed.  Bill Polian was the driving force behind the increase in pass interference and the enforcement of the never-before-used illegal contact rule.

    Also, one call on Ellis Hobbs was so bad that the league even admitted that they blew it.  Yet Reggie Wayne got up and complained anyway (even though Hobbs never touched him)... the call: face-guarding (!!!)

    How bout the Broncos asking for intentional grounding after Brady evaded D.J. Williams who came in free on a delayed blitz.

    The best part about that call is that the rule no longer existed in the NFL.
