Serious question.

I don't believe there is any way the Patriots are flagged for holding on that play.

I think it's a tragedy that teams are treated differently on borderline infractions. In this instance I'm being kind to the refs calling it borderline.

I took a still photo of it.

Two players interlocked with each other.

Zach Line, just to the left of Robertson.

That was the extent of it.

Seriously, that was it.

The Pat's are the 6th least penalized team in the league. Carolina is least, then Miami.

The Saints are tied with Buffalo for 8th most penalized team. Atlanta is first.

Given that, I'm going to say NE would not have been penalized.

didn't a ref this year tell another team's player to go easy on tom brady or something?
i think there is some bias towards that team. could even be subconscious, but robert kraft is pretty good friends with the commish, who knows.

It's sad. I had just told my dad when they lined up to punt that it sure would be nice to take one to the house. Then he did! Was crazy, but of course I had a feeling there would be "some" penalty. It's getting absolutely ridiculous.
I still think we are purposely targeted.

And every penalty on us, almost without fail, is at the most inopportune time.

The ticky tack block on the edge when we scored a TD. But of course they called us for holding.

It's an obvious, emphatic no. Easily the most ridiculous call of the game. Iirc, the flag was thrown during the return, for a penalty that occurred during the kick. It made no sense and it stunk of trying to prevent the return from counting.

That is correct the penalty was thrown after the two men had long disengaged.

Oh yeah, SP was more than jus a lil POed with that call! It was the very first thing he brought up in his presser after the game! Ridiculous!

I also saw this tweet from former Saint Jermon Bushrod about the play:

“I would love to see where the HOLD was on ZACH LINE!!! Because that clip that was replayed on TV was damn good technique to me. Hands were inside. Footlocker employees tripping again......!”
