That is just part of the story. It is when penalties are called that is the most interesting part of all of this. I am still working on this, but I have the breakdown of third down, fourth down or overturned INT's (when a team is on Offense) as 13-6 in favor of the Saints opponents this year.A breakdown of penalties per year
is that the play where Evans and willaims were literally both bear hugging each other? bc on one hand it's hilarious on the other how do you call that when both players are doing it lolThat's the pitiful thing about it. When I heard the commentators say there's a flag I thought "Finally! Cam was was being held right in front of the ref..sadly, we don't need it cause he got the sack anyway" ..well, I was wrong. The flag they called on us wasn't even a flag DB was within the 5 yards of making contact.
Ding ding ding! That is exactly right, they would not be throwing it every other play, they would only have to call a couple times early in the game to set the precedence and it would stop. The ones i am seeing ARE egregious and they are STILL not calling them.A good ref would throw a flag early and send the message to the Olineman. Then, Cam would register double digit sacks every game. Explains why the league doesn't want good refs.
Wow couldn’t agree more. Have been saying the same thing for YEARS up here and Everyone thinks I’m a biased arrogant sore loser when I call out the refs lolPeople keep saying that its in retaliation for pushing the PI replay rule through but this has been going on for years. @Dallas last year, @atl the year before seattle in both 2013 games, every time we play NE, and just about every game through the 3 straight 7-9 seasons. The other team’s DBs are allowed to be all over our WRs, but if we even breath while the ball is in the air and its DPI.
Yep, it's been like this pretty much since Bountygate and when Saints won the Super Bowl.People keep saying that its in retaliation for pushing the PI replay rule through but this has been going on for years. @Dallas last year, @atl the year before seattle in both 2013 games, every time we play NE, and just about every game through the 3 straight 7-9 seasons. The other team’s DBs are allowed to be all over our WRs, but if we even breath while the ball is in the air and its DPI.
I do. And someone else also mentioned it earlier in the thread too. The officiating has been poor and getting worse since the 1990's.This makes me think back to a play from years ago, where a flag was thrown and then picked up by the ref... with an explanation along the lines of:
“There is no flag on the play for offensive holding, the defender continued to fight through the play; negating the foul.”
I know that I’m not entirely crazy... does anyone else remember this?
