Yeah, about that.... The only way I see a ref calling holding or interference on whoever is covering Gronk is if the guy actually lugs a saddle into the huddle so he can have a comfy ride.


On the interference call in the end zone, what they missed was the pushing off the receiver did as he made the cut that got him open.

During the season I keep hearing the analysts say that the pushing motion with the arm going straight will always get called. Nope, not yesterday.

So why was Belichick so pissed at the refs that he threw his tablet twice?

As Steve says, Gronk is basically assaulted on every pass route, very rarely is it called. There were some ticky tack calls on the Pats' secondary yesterday too.

He threw the tablet because it was a "Surface" and not an "iPad".

I can't comment on that, because I was so disgusted after the Saints-Rams game that I turned the tv off and my wife and I worked on a jigsaw puzzle. We won't watch the Super Bowl either.

NFL has been the WWE since it was called the WWF. That's how long it's been just a disgusting pre-scripted exhibition and nothing more. They were a joke laughing stalk way before this fiasco... and they were 10 face masks and helmets to helmets not called this weekend. It's a J O K E Period

I agree, it was like all those strike calls Maddux, Glavine, and Smoltz got that were way outside.

I am sure all the Pats and Braves fans will disagree with us though.

I've always claimed that the WWE is the most legit of any major sport. At least they state up front that it's "sports entertainment."

Pedro got those calls too, but I don't think it had anything to do with favoritism, it was skill and artistry. Great pitchers know how to expand the strike zone.

I am not buying the conspiracy theories that the officials are told from on high who to favor.

Specious statement at best. I agree that the call against #95 of the Chiefs for qb interference in the fourth quarter was not a good call. However, the refs completely ignored two blatant penalties in the same quarter. The obvious pass interference against Gronkowski which was pointed out by Romo/Nance. 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.

The main problem with the refs is they are a bunch of old men trying to keep up with some of the best athletes in the world. They constantly prove they are unable to monitor the game as needed thus I would either go younger and more athletic or have a third of the refs make calls from the press box. No excuses for getting so many obvious calls wrong.
