    I threw up a little in my mouth when I read that article this morning.

    Hobbs made NO contact with Wayne.

    If I'm not mistaken, the ref when announcing the penalty even said "the defensive back made no play on the ball". Bottom line, they called face-guarding and it's not a penalty, so they F'd up.

    Fu*k the NFL & the officials. Grow a pair and admit you fu**ed up or say nothing about it at all.

    Yeah, & the worst part is that the ref says "he must have made contact with the receiver"...is it really THAT hard to believe that an NFL official made a MISTAKE??

    What do you mean flip flops? Axe Vic said the wrong call was made. The actual NFL said the right one was made. Big difference.

    Ridiculous. I am sick to my stomach.

    I bet Polian had something to do with this.

    There was contact on the play -- when Wayne tried to reach up for the ball, his left arm made contact with Hobbs' helmet.

    Hobbs didn't initiate the contact, but that might not matter. If he's not playing the ball and Wayne is, any contact might constitute pass interference, as long as Wayne is making a bona fide effort to catch the ball.

    How about Patriots fans move on?

    That call did not cost the Pats the game, regardless.

    I believe PI should have been called on either Harper or David covering Caldwell.

    Other than that... the Patriots should have won this game on the field. Couldn't run the ball, catch the ball, or defend the ball in the second half. The Patriots team blew the football game. Not the refs. Get over it and move on.

    Whats that supposed to mean? That NE will take down Indy in the future? Maybe. But after winning 2 at your place and one at the Dome last Sunday, I doubt very much the Colts are scared of NE.

    Right. And the Patriots had their share of gifts from the officials when you're dynasty was alive.

    Sux for us to have had the officials calls and non calls go against us - However, what stays with me is:

    3:22 - Patriots ball and we cannot muster a first down. Then - we could not hold your team as you rammed the ball down our throats for 80 yards. During the drive, we did not use our time outs properly further handicapping any chance of a magical last minute come back.

    NO way do I blame the refs and NO way will I slight your teams accomplishments last Sunday.

    You won it - you did it now go enjoy your Superbowl and win the damn thing!!

    I don't understand why people say two of the things you say here. Amazingly, it's only one sentence.

    Yes, we've had our share of "gifts" (the tuck rule for one), but why does that make it illegitimate to complain when crap calls get made against us? That logic would only work if when we got our gifts our reaction was "YES PERFECT CALL HOORAY FOR THE REFS WE ROCK!", and if that's what you think then you're wrong.

    If we win the Super Bowl next year, no one will deny that it is part of the current Patriot dynasty. Therefore, how can anybody call it dead? Oh right, cause they hate the team.

    You know, Ryan, if I were a Colts fan I'd be hanging out on, say, a Colts board instead of antagonizing another team's fans about a game you've supposedly "gotten over".

    Just a suggestion.

    Um, the ref himself called a face guard penalty.

    How do you square that with the fact that such a penalty doesn't exist?

    Which begs the question, don't you have any internet friends who are Colts fans?

    No, we actually didn't. New England was repeatedly screwed by the refs and won anyway, until Denver last year.

    Oh, and the dynasty is still alive.

    Antagonizing? Or making my point of view clear.

    Just a fact.

    I didn't know this was a Patriots fan only forum? If it is, please feel free to have Ian ban me for being a Colts fan.

    I saw that about the dynasty. He's been getting his little shots here and there all week. He pretends to respect the Patriots etc., but clearly there are some emotional issues that have come to the forefront since last weekend that he's trying to resolve here. Strange really. Just another troll at the end of the day.
