Look. Every team loses a game or two per year over bad calls. The only consistent favoritism I've ever noticed was a few years back when Brady and Manning got all the roughing the passer calls but it didn't seem like the lesser-known QB's got the same treatment. The officiating is crap, but for you to pretend like it is always the Ravens getting the calls is just silly. Every team's fans feel like they get hosed but most realize that's just part of being a fan and they can step back and realize the problem is not actual bias among the refs. Bad officiating? Yes. Biased officiating? No.
Dude, the Patriots defense stopped you MULTIPLE times only to see an official throw a flag and give the Ravens a free 1st and 10. This happened MULTIPLE times, ALL through out the game. More over, on more than one occassion the Patriots offense was robbed, including a phantom PI call on Edelman IN THE ENDZONE that robbed New England of ANOTHER TOUCHDOWN.
The announcers were LAUGHING it was so pathetic, culminating with Chris Collinsworth announcing on LIVE TELEVISION that the "only loser in this game was the fans."
And to put a cherry on top of it all, the game winning field goal...
WASN'T EVEN GOOD!!!!
So don't come at me with your "every team gets bad calls" bullcrap like this was just one questionable offsides call. That was complete highway robbery. It was banana republic football.
Your team is pathetic. New England is not going to be afraid to meet you again in the post season because we can go into that game completely aware that we completely DOMINATED you on offense and on defense in our first meeting, even if the scabs handed you a make believe win.
