It's absolutely ridiculous that during the N.F.L. regular season the
players are highly scrutinized and better not make any mistakes or a flag will
be thrown in preparation to attempt to make the Playoffs. During the Playoffs
the N.F.L. or the Comissioner Roger Goodell says, "Let the players
play." Leaving them to Police themselves. Cary Williams of the Ravens pushes
a Referee and doesn't get thrown out of the SuperBowl? Are you kidding me?
During the Regular season he would have been thrown out instantaneously. The
SuperBowl is a joke and has been for years w/horrible officiating, entertainment
oldcougarOrem, UT Your are correct, but there were two calls in the
first half that weren't called, Torrey Smith covered by two 49er's and
he couldn't get back to the back, which was interference that they
didn't call, and what about the Flacco being hit out of bounds, even the
announcers were like he was out of bounds, but probably a good no call, so yeah
it goes both ways.
Great game despite a few referee malfunctions. Disturbing commercials and
halftime bar room dancing. Made the decision for future Super Bowls to turn off
the TV whenever football is not being played.
Paul Kruger (Utah) sacks Kaepernick on 3rd and goal in the Super Bowl! I got my
If I ever hear "that was a good no-call" again, I'll puke. If
it's against the rules, have the courage to make the call. The rule book
does not describe infractions as "situational." The 49er's receiver
may well have made the catch in the corner of the end zone if he hadn't
been obviously held. The 49er's defender may well have tackled the Ravens
punter in the end zone, saving precious seconds, if he hadn't been held.
Now, before you respond with "well, it goes both ways," let
me say, "I agree with you, but the calls must be made. The refs need to have
the integrity to make the calls!"
