Idk if anyone heard at halftime, they said the nfl met with the refs today, talks broke with still substantial differences between both sides, no further talks scheduled. Looks like these clowns are here to stay and Goodell can further ruin the NFL

I was going to come here and start a thread about how we out played and out classed the Ravens in all phases of the game only to have the officials completely hose us and gift wrap a Raven win.

The officials killed numerous NE drives that were rolling tonight with horrible calls.
They likewise kept alive numerous dead drives by the Ravens.

I understand a lot of you despise the Patriots but this game was a black mark on the integrity of the NFL.

It doesn't matter what your team does on the field if the other team will just be awarded 1st down after 1st down with phantom penalties that leave the entire watching audience, including the announcers, scratching their heads in disbelief.

The Ravens didn't win that game, but it will sure look like they did when the papers tomorrow show them to be 2-1.

Thats two games in a row that we've been hosed by the officials. At least in the Arizona game I could live with the Gronk call because we didn't really deserve the win, but tonight was just incredible. I'm speechless.

I'm past rage. Now i'm in mourning for the NFL.

You sure it's a black mark and not an asterisk.

I find it hard to believe that your hatred for a conference rival is greater than your love of the NFL.

Do you think the Steelers are going to be immune to this?

Are you ready to lose in the post season and have your year ended by something like this? A bunch of phantom penalties to keep the Ravens alive and moving up the field for a gift wrapped touchdown that was then followed up by a field goal that was no good that was called good by the officials anyway without challenge or review?

Did you see the game?

There is something greater at stake right here than a Patriots v Ravens game or your precious Steelers post season seed. This is the integrity of the NFL as a legitimate sport and not "sports entertainment" which is exactly what it looked like, especially in the 4th quarter.

Was almost surprised to see the Ravens didn't cap their night off with a gatorade bath.

take a better look at the user name....just like patriot fans were the only ones defending spygate , the only ones that will try to rationalize a ratbird win will be ratbird fans....

yeah....the person that posted that is a Ravens fan....not a Steelers fan.

Awful, terrible officiating in that game. But you have to admit, its something new for the Pats organization to not have the ref's on their side. They've been on your side for the last few years...on a level that reaches "ridiculous". This is something new for NE.

I'm sorry, I just can't find it in me to sympathize with ANY other fanbase about shit calls that affect the outcome of a game. Yea, I know..... I'm a shitty, gangster, criminal, thug Raiders fan , but no team in the NFL has been f**cked over by the refs more than the Raiders, over the years.

I'm not even talking about the ones we all know about. The Raiders always get the most egregious, off the wall, "have to look it up in the rule book to see if we can make it stick" bullshit calls against them. Not whining....... it's just the truth.

It's been kinda a cool to see a few other teams experience what the Raiders are all to well acustomed to, from the refs.

Some of you are pretty reasonable, and to you let me apologize in advance. But, as for the others, come on. And yes, I'm a Ravens fan.

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.
