Mike Reiss' blog - Ravens not happy with officiating - ESPN Boston
Gee, never saw that coming
We had a questionable pass interference and they had one so that's even. The McGahee run I have no idea where the ***** is on that one. It wasn't even close. The fake FG I do understand their frustration. I'm not sure however how that works. Is it like the goal line? Because if it is they are correct and I don't think that's a first down.
Exactly. Boo hoo. Their whining takes away from what was a good game and something to build on.Next....
He says it wouldn't of been a first down anyway, and on the Baker catch the officials reviewed and still called a first down. How much more do you want the officials to do?
I can't remember the last time I saw a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the coach.
He sounds like an idiot complaining about the McGahee spot when he admits "it probably wouldn't have been a first down anyway."
As for the fake FG, the right call was made on the field and the decision to uphold that call after further review was the right one.
What exactly did he get it for, anyways?
Yeah, and he still kept yappin after he got the flag.
Have I mentioned lately I love Bill Belichick? I'd take a bullet for the man.
Funny, as I was watching the patriots 5th quarter, they all believed the Suggs hit was intentional and he wanted to hurt Brady. They felt there was plenty of time for Suggs to pull up.
They think a fine and suspension should happen, although I doubt it will.
YouTube - Ray Lewis calls officiating 'Embarassing'
Those ticky-tacky calls may be "correct," but you literally cannot touch Tom Brady now without expecting a penalty. The guys are just expressing their frustration at Brady basically being untouchable in every single way, and even as New England fans, I don't think you can deny that.
Ngata reached his hands out to try to bat the ball down, which, by the way, is usually next to the quarterback's head right before being thrown. . .
Also, how often do you see a coach being flagged in football? Harbaugh wasn't publicly showing up the referees, but they actually called a personal foul on him anyway.
The spots were pretty bad too.
The bad officiating undoubtedly went both ways, but Baltimore got the shaft more often than New England.
I agree and doubt it will.
Bart Scott set the standard in '07, why should that change?
If Wilfork got fined for his late hit a couple years ago, then Suggs should be slapped with one too.
I haven't seen one team complain about officiating so much before.
He looks like an idiot in this clip because he just doesn't seem to realize the rules of the NFL dictate special protection for quarterbacks. If his beef is with the rules that's fine, but you can't blame the officials for enforcing the rules as written.
The rules are the rules and all 3 roughing calls today (blow to the head of Brady, blow to the knees of Brady, blow to the head of Flacco) were correct.
You obviously didn't watch the Pats-Jets game. Maybe you should do that first before showing you don't know what you are talking about in here and putting words into our mouths.
Doesn't matter if he was waving to his momma... hit the QB in the head and it is 15 yards, period.
If anyone saw the special on the Harbaughs (Father, sons and brother-in law), they flat came out and said that there hasn't been a game yet where they felt that the refs weren't in the tank for the other team. Even their wives commented on it. So, how could anyone be surprised?
You obviously don't follow the Ravens at all .
They always blow this stuff out of proportion, but they do have a basic point.
Ray isn't disputing whether the call was correct or not, he is just frustrated that as a linebacker, he cannot even think about taking a shot at Brady unless Tom has absolutely no clue the rush is coming and still has the ball tucked away. Otherwise, just let Brady throw the ball and hope it isn't caught.
Ed isn't saying that Willis would have reached the first down marker, he is just ticked that the referees brought out the chains for a ball which was a full two yards short of the first down marker upon other poor spots.
