    Just one more datum point in the conspiracy theory.

    Exactly when did a TRIPPING become a 15 yard PERSONAL FOUL???

    I checked the rule book: see below

    While 10 yards would have been enough to stop the drive probably; the referee really wanted to stick it to us on this one. So he made up that it was unsportsmanlike instead of the call that EXACTLY DESCRIBES the penalty. Tripping.

    speaking of horrible refs and 15 yard penalties, after moss' 50+ yard catch he was blatantly speared by a colts player and there was no flag.

    They actually called it a leg whip, but it sure looked like a trip to me.

    Yeah, they called in "Personal Foul, Leg whip". I don't disagree with them calling it though. It was blatent and intentional. Thats one call they actually got "right".

    Matty will probably be getting a little notice from the commish any day now asking for his contribution to NFL charities...

    If you get a chance, if anyone has the game on DVR, check the 12:51 mark of the second quarter. They just showed a replay of this on NFL Live, and I am pretty sure the defender tackles the intended reciever (Faulk?) at the goal line. I guess that is allowed now too.

    Was NFL Live discussing the officiating during the game, and if so, what were they saying? Or was this just something you noticed incidentally while you were watching the highlights on NFL Live?

    No they were discussing how Tom Brady was struggling in the first 50 minutes, and they used that play as an example. I had noticed it when I watched the game live, but couldn't remember where it was (I commented on it in the game thread too, but was having trouble finding the post. I thought it was later in the game). Brady was pressured by Freeney I believe, and threw it about two feet in front of Faulk (?). But if I saw correctly, Faulk was literally on the ground because of the defender. I don't know if the pass was tipped (I dont think it was), but if not, then this is just more piling on the Refs awful bag job.

    just watched that one, Boiman tackled him as he ran along the goal line BUT the ball bounced short of faulk by a couple of feet so maybe they called it uncatchable....who knows. I thought about making a low-lights video with all the bad calls but A)there's too many and B)too negative, I'll move on.

    "A punter, placekicker, or holder who simulates being roughed by a defensive player."

    Has anyone ever seen this called?
