    Re: Should the Pats Protest the Game

    Skip Bayless is going off right now how everyone of us stood up and saw that ball miss. He was right, it was the reaction of every Pat AND Raven fan I know. He also just showed the phantom calls on 1st take!

     

    I don't think BB will protest it, but he should. This game was a black mark on the NFL.

    Re: Should the Pats Protest the Game

    That FG was close no matter how you look at it. The rules state that it can't be reviewed if it is (above the uprights) which it was. From the camera angles. there is no way of tellling for sure. There is only one guy right below it, and without the camera having that same angle, how can one argue?....Let's face it....it was close.

    I do have a solution moving forward....either make the posts 20 feet taller, or use laser light to make sure the call is right. With the $$ the NFL produces, one would think the'y make a change here.

    The ball can pass above the uprights and be good.

    From the NFL RuleBook  Rule 11 Section 4 Article 2:

     

    "(c) The entire ball must pass through the vertical plane of the goal, which is the area above the crossbar and between the uprights or, if above the uprights, between their outside edges."

    Looked to me like the ball would have hit the upright slightly if it was 5 feet lower, but we'll never know with 1960's technology used by the NFL.

    What an embarrassment to the NFL to not allow a review of a clear mistake. It is just Goodell hiding his incompetence and love for the Jets. I saw o or three video shots that were better angle than the refs would have had look up the uprights. They wouldn't be able to tell here a ball was from there.

    Great, another Ravens troll.  Like you can tell if that is in front or behind the upright.

    Angle and depth can't be determined by the photo.  It was hooking for sure.

    Disturbing is the first word that comes to mind.   Some have been saying the refs are ripe for Vegas and corruption to fester and they may be right.

    It's puzzling how any official can justify acting like that kick was not only good, but clearly a good FG.

     

     

     




    wow, came here to see how you would defend your rebuilt defense or bash Brady but instead I find you trying to lead a crusade to protest the game?  From Occupy Wall Street to Occupy Goodell's Office.  Too funny Rusty, too funny...

    In response to DelGriffith's comment:

    What's not funny is inept officiating and officials who don't know the game or the rules. It cannot be debated that they called the last play incorrectly.

    Protesting the game simply means that it goes on record, it doesn't mean anything changes.

    Any NFL fan who is a real fan should be outraged at the way these games are called. From huge delays, a lack of understanding of the rules, spotting of the ball, simple decisions, etc, it's embarassing.

     

     




    Both teams play with those refs buddy.  bad calls/game delays for everyone. 

     

    Doesnt give little bill the right to put his hands on anyone.

    Really? Its okay to grab someone to get their attention?

     

    What will commish do to get LB's attention?  He already said to stop giving the refs a hard time on the field, now LB does this?  You better hope he doesnt make another example out of him.  What would the commish do to a player that grabs a ref? will be interesting to note what happens to a HC/GM of a team.

    Re: Should the Pats Protest the Game

    A four-hour debacle.  That game hands down was the worst officiated game I have ever seen (on both sides).  But, the biggest thing was the inconsistency--the Ravens receivers pushed off all night and no calls---not so much on our side.  The phantom holding calls on McCourty, Arrington and Spikes were killer.  Even Collinsworth and Michaels were like, "what are they seeing that we are not?"  If Kraft doesnt call the office he shows his true colors w/his new babe--it is just about the benjamins.  Two horrible calls that have cost us two games---do some more auditions Robert....just pathetic.    And tell me--how can a player extend an arm WHEN THE BALL HAS ALREADY BROKEN THE PLANE OF BEING OUT OF BOUNDS?  At the very least that call should have been upheld by the evidence not being overwhelming.  The NFL is getting like the NBA---which is becoming more and more unwatchable due to the crooked refs.

    No to the portest. Bad calls against both teams and if Brady converts a first down on the last drive the Pats win the game or if Mc Courty squeezes the INT. If you;re gonna protest it has to by all the coaches going all in. And I saw more than a few bad calls in various games.
