Default Refs Cheat?

Our first offensive drive when we ended up kicking a field goal...it was 3rd down and goal and I think it was Vrabel was a good yard or more offsides...but the refs made no call?!? Pass interference on Holmes on Rothlisberger's lob to the end zone...no call?!? I noticed that there were at least 2 penalties against us (one of them was on a good kick or punt that we returned to around the 40 or 50 yard line & consequently got the ball on around the 8 yd line instead) that were never shown on replay....usually when you get a holding or a block in the back penalty on a kickoff/punt return, they show the replay so everyone can see...never happened!?! The NFL & Refs are doing everything they can to continue the Pats win streak. Da bastards!

Not to say that we didn't kill ourselves with the stupid goal line play calling (how bout Parker or Davenport for 2 or 3 runs up the gut instead) & Smith/Turner getting burned for 2 long touchdowns...stop looking in the backfield idiots & cover moss!

Sorry, still a little raw from the game.

Minus well let it out not let it bog ya down. But I'll say this, if teams don't overcome bad calls, they're not going to win. It's pretty much one of those things that go hand in hand.

historically, the home team usually gets those borderline calls.

everyone wants to say the refs/nfl helps the pats, the pats cheat, etc. etc., and i would love to see bellicheck and kraft banned from the NFL for life for some hideous infraction, but let's face it, this is the most explosive team we've seen since.....well.....the 2005 colts!...or...ummm...the 2001 rams......or is it the 97-98 broncos?

seriously though, the pats are playing lights out. this game reminded me a bit of the 2004 champ game with the halfs reversed.

Yes - there were a few questionable calls yesterday, but when all is said and done, simply put - we got our asses handed to us by the better team on the field who played full throttle, not half throttle.

i thought the refs did fine.. it was no different than the holding call in the browns-steelers game on the punt return that they didnt show over.. doesnt mean it didnt happen though. we sucked bad. thats all there is to it.

Guys. There-will-always-be-questional-calls. Until the day the NFL replaces refs with mindless officiating robots that always make the right call, there will always be questional calls. Even then, I'm not so sure.

Usually these things equal out through the course of a game.
I saw the offsides on 3rd down and thought for sure we had a free play.
I also saw Colon getting away with choke slamming a DE several minutes before he got flagged for the same offense.
