You call it bias. I call it cheating.

I honestly wonder if he's just always nervous the whole game by cheap Ravens players ending his career and so is extra careful about everything he does.

They're definitely the dirties and most despicable team we have to play. Not sure about the entire NFL because I only watch so many NFC games, but the Ravens are, without question, certifiably pieces of shit.

I don't like them at all and I don't hate them in a "they're a rival, it's fun to hate them" sort way. I hate them in a "you're the scum of the earth on and off the field" sort of way.

F them and F their fans.

Maybe they can all just wear flags from now on so none of those pansies you root for ever have to take a hit. Lol I would rather be a piece of shit with a set of balls and some sense o how football should be played than a gigantic ***** with a massive sense of entitlement and a qb that folds in a stiff breeze. 0Td 2intlol elite...

I'm not sure of the exact procedures, but don't you have to twist the facemask for it to be a penalty?

I understand that this call still could have been made, but if the rule is that you must twist for a foul to be issued, then it is not nearly as blatant as you all are whining about, nor would it potentially be an infraction at all.

"no player shall twist, turn, or pull the facemask of an opponent in any direction."

He clearly "pulled" his facemask, therefore it was a penalty. No, you don't have to twist. Twisting, turning and pulling of the facemask all result in a fifteen yard penalty.

A "facemask" penalty is a judgment call that is not reviewable by replay.

Rule 12, Section 2, Article 5 of the NFL Rule Book (page 81) states that "no player shall twist, turn, or pull the facemask of an opponent in any direction."

The Rule Book describes the penalty as follows:

"Penalty: For twisting, turning or pulling the mask: loss of 15 yards. A personal foul. The player may be disqualified if the action is judged by the official(s) to be of a flagrant nature."

Thanks for the clarification.

The only defense that I would have for Torrey is that, from still-pictures alone, you can't make the call that he definitively pulled on the facemask. Momentum led Moore into following Torrey into the endzone; from the pictures, we can't prove that Torrey brought Moore along for the ride.

Further, I think that all of this is null and void. My perspective is that, ultimately, calls end up balancing themselves out.

Sure, Torrey could have been called for a facemask on that play, but I can guarantee that there was an earlier hold call missed on the Patriots that gave them a first down, which led them to call a series of plays that scored the touchdown. If not for the first down, their playcalling would have been altered. Who knows, maybe the Ravens would have ended up picking off Brady for a touchdown because of a different playcall caused by a first down not being obtained.

Unless there is an egregious, concerted effort against the Seahawks, err any one team, then the officials' judgements end up evening out.
