Default Did anyone see the hold on Farrior?

today during the pro bowl they showed a replay of Fitzgerald running the entire field on the Harrison interception. i just wanted to see if anyone else noticed that at the beginning of the return, a cardinals player blatantly held and threw down james farrior? i keep hearing people bitching and whining about what may or may not have been a clip by woodley, but that hold on farrior was as obvious as any in the game and it wasnt called. and it was right at the beginning when all the officials were still around that area.

update: i found a video of it.

at the 9:31 mark you will see Timmons being held, and at the 9:37 mark you will see Farrior dragged down.

this is a cool video actually, so if you haven't seen it.. i highly recommend watching the whole video.

JJ:
But in the Cardinals defense, the player only used 2 hands to pull him down by his shoulder pads and toss him, lol.

For some reason, I never seen that angle till today. Or never ooked back on the play when it was on...

well, fitz was still out of bounds when he tackled harrison and that wasn't called. you have to reestablish yourself inbounds.

Remember, boys and girls...rule-breaking is only acceptable when the Steelers' opponents do so.

And it's never discussed. If the Steelers get 1 call they shoulnd't (roughing the passer) and the Cards get a boat load of no calls (like holding Harrison EVERY DOWN or a TD that shouldn't count) it means that it's a conspiracy and the NFL rigged the game for the Steelers. LOL As long as the right team wins, I'll fight the good fight every time I hear it. Save video evidence and stuff it down their throats... I have a PDF file that I believe proves the Immaculate reception happened the way it was called on the field. :) I've even convinced Raider fans with it. :)

watch Farrior from the beginning of the play. At the 0:05 mark, you can see Boldin grab his jersey, but the camera moves before you see him get thrown down. keep in mind there are refs all around that including a ref trailing from behind that couldn't have missed it. If someone tries giving you shit about woodley point this out to them and tell them to stfu.

+ 1. Good catch. I was too busy watching the greatness that was taking place. Good eye.

Plus, BIG BLOCK from KEISEL!

I was just lurking over at the official Cards board, following up this subject: the Cards fans are still whining about the officiating. Good grief, people. Build a bridge and GET OVER IT.

KIESEL had a very big game and went largely unnoticed. He recovered the Warner fumble and had a sack IIRC.
