Default If at first you don't succeed...

...blame the referees.

Granted the Ravens got screwed in that PI call tonite, but even then, they were given even MORE chances thanks to the Bengals penalty a play later. I wanted the Rats to win, but now I'm glad these ****ers lost.

Ballick blames the officials to justify his arrogance and his crappy playcalling.

the ravens got screwed? i guess the seahawks got screwed in sb XL then...

but after seeing more replays it doesnt look like heaps arm is extended in a push off. if the penalty were called on heath miller i would probably be upset.

very well could be a bad call.

Funny thing is...

For every penalty that we see that we say should be called for a team, there are probably 10 that should be called AGAINST a team... but aren't.

One thing I like about hockey... you EXPECT only the BIG penalties to be called (Well, that used to be true, before it became basketball on ice... Oh, don't touch me.. foul foul).

YES. And EXACTLY.

The contact by Heap never interfered with the momentum of the coverage meaning that he had a fair chance with or without the "hand check." (barely a hand check)

In the Super Bowl the receiver's hand check propelled the momentum of the coverage two fold. The push off happened when the receiver reversed his route sending the coverage in the opposite direction.

An analogy I like is not unlike being in a pool. Start swimming a lap without pushing off the wall. At NFL speed that little push is plenty to be considered illegal contact especially if the push sends the coverage in the opposite direction.

FLAG

IILEGAL CONTACT.

I'm thinking the NHL players realize who is their fan base. And the more the NHL caters to the "anti-fighting" moveon.org mommies and kiddies (and post-mature adolescent yogi's and psuedo-hippies) whose productivity actually counts against GDP...

The NHL must realize its economic place in the world and reset salaries that reflect its true earning potential. A first step in resetting ticket prices and preserving its true fan base that won't squeal at the site of blood on the ice.

Bankruptcy is the alternative. Good thing hockey is greater than the NHL.

Hey regardless, the whole point of football is to overcome adversity. The ratbirds had their opportunity after that call. They didn't take advantage of it, didn't use the talent they had on the team - McGahee - to put the ball in the endzone and instead opted to let Boller lose another one for them.
