Uh, the one they are complaining about is the hold on the 49ers last offensive play.

You just contradicted yourself....IF they had called holding it wouldve immediately stopped the clock and it wouldve resulted in a saftey. Forcing the Ravens to have to punt with about 8-9the seconda on the clock possibly.

BUT the holding call that wasnt called....was blatantly defesnive holding. Which would/should have given the 49ers an automatic first down on the one.

Welcome to the world of tainted Super Bowls b****es ;)

That defensive holding call that wasn't called gets me. I give the Ravens credit for winning and they played like winners. However, by not calling that penalty the refs took the game out of the players hands.

No they are complaining about both, did you even go to a 9ers board?

http://www.49erswebzone.com/forum/ni...ed-block-like/

From the thread:

"John tells his players to hold and kill the clock to take the safety either way. How can a whole team hold that obviously and not one get called for it? That should tell you what the Ravens were getting away with on our last drive."

And there were several other threads merged earlier in the week. So . . . you were saying?

Wrong, calling holding doesn't stop the play. In what game have you ever seen holding stop a play? It isn't a pre-snap penalty. Seriously, just think about what you said. If holding stopped a play you could use it to negate a sack. Know you QB is going to be tackled for an 8 yard loss and loss of down? Just commit a holding penalty and get the play blown dead before the sack can happen! The defense can't decline the penalty because the play was not completed, they have to accept a 10 yard loss. Boom, save the loss of down and keep the 2 yards.

Are you daft or just being intentionally thick in an ironic impression of a Steelers fan?

I'm saying the Ravens got away with holding....twice. But the one that matters is the hold on the offensive play. And that's the one most people were complaining about. Don't strain at a gnat to swallow a camel.

I agree: that was a smart call by John. Because, you are right: if the refs call holding... oh well.. they were going for the safety anyway. [Note to all: throwing a flag would not have stopped the clock; the play had to end first, and then the penalty would be assessed... just like on every other offensive play.]

Ugh... did I just agree with a Ravens fan!?! I feel so dirty... ick.

Speaking of holding... the PI on Jimmy Smith... uh... that is a different story...
