Default This is F'n Ridiculous

I've had enough of the NFL and their BS. All of these flags on Harrison, Woodley, etc. for late hits, hitting QB's in the head, helmet to helmet, etc....NFL calling it "player safety" and for the good of the game. Pretty much making an example out of the Steelers. Now the same kind of stuff happens to our players...we get NOTHING. Take your player safety and shove it up your ass. If you're not going to call it consistently you look like complete fools. Damn I'm really starting to hate Goodell and the NFL.

I'll bet you see a penalty called for roughing Ben in the 2nd half. Something tells me the referee will get a call from the NFL at the half, I can't see two weeks in a row.

The 2 last week were completely obvious, I couldn't f'n believe that they weren't called. You'd figure after missing those calls they'd keep a better eye on Ben this week....nope 2 more blatantly obvious penalties that aren't called. F'n ridiculous. You bet your ass if that was Harrison he'd be flagged.

Guess player safety is only aimed towards certain players.

Can't agree with you more. Ben is getting hit after the play damn near after EVERY pass. And the defenders have time to pull up, and they are taking pot shot. They know the refs will not call the close hits. As we all well know if it were Harrison or anyone on the Steelers D at this point it would be a flag...personal foul variety.

its so bad today that i'm thinking this whole team of ref's must live in Cincinnati. How about that hold on Ziggy Hold where he almost got tackled??
It appears they have no problem calling a holding penalty on Pittsburgh though...

Almost as obvious as the hits on Ben are the holding/no holding calls. They are calling the Steelers for holding left and right. I will say about 50% of them were correct, but they've called one holding call against the Bengals when they are pulling jerseys and damn near tackling a few of our D linemen. I've noted 6 OBVIOUS holds that should have been called against the Bengals that weren't, and I've seen 3 holding calls against the Steelers that were not. The chant "refs you suck" was heard again at least, good job Heinz Field!

Hubby & I were talking about it earlier. W/ the apologies to the Steelers about missed calls, I'd think the refs would be watching extra carefully for it, but, no. If I were that terrible at my job, I'd be fired. =P

&, then, to call all the holds on us, when we are held pretty much every play. I'm not saying we aren't holding, but, is it ever actually going to be called fair, ever? I don't want the calls the other way around, I just want fair. If you call it against us, call it against them.

I've been saying it for years. Every QB in the league is protected by the officials.

Except Ben.

Hell, the commentators even said it after the non-call on the facemask. "Oh, when you have a quarterback who is as hard to take down, they're not going to call penalties..." WHY THE F*** NOT? Because Ben's not a ***** like Manning, he gets screwed? I hate the NFL.
