The other one was completely missed and not mentioned by anyone: The second Brady interception that went off the hands of Edelman. After it went off of Edelman's hands he ran about 5 yards and was knocked down by a hit to the head by a Chief's player. That should have been an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty of 15 yards with it being assessed from the point of infraction. The back judge should have caught that one.

If they were giving the Pats a break they would not have called 3 penalties against Jackson? (rookie db from U/Maryland) so readily.

I am not even much of a football fan (they don't pay me). My wife likes the Pats/Brady so I casually watch and explain a lot of the game to her.
I thought one of the calls on Jackson was right but the last one in particular was really weak. It's tough because you could call holding on every single play and pass interference on most plays, as a ref you really have to limit yourself to blatant ones or outcome determinative ones.

And neither am I.

I didn't watch the Saints/Rams game, however, I did see the highlights and that hit in the end was pretty bad. I was surprised no call was made. However, it's silly to suggest that the NFL had something to do with this. I'm pretty sure the Saints had the whole entire game to score more points, but they failed to do so.

Tom Brady is going to his 27th Super Bowl, and football fans across the country are throwing up because everyone is sick to death of that man! I'm pretty sure the guys who run the league are sick of him too! But what can they do about it? You could be beating his team with only 0.02 seconds left on the clock and he'll still find a way to win.

Default Commish awakes...

This just in :

Goodell finally woke up to comment on the Saints game.
He says he didn’t understand the controversy.

His statement claims the balls were properly inflated and the old quarterback for the black and gold team wouldn’t be suspended. Then he said there would be 4 more games in London and Mexico City scheduled for next year. Very exciting news.

I'm pretty sure the reason the PI wasn't called is that the league had asked Brady who he wanted to play in the SB and he said, "The Rams."
