    Yeah, you may be right. But, damn! The Saints got absolutely raped. I have no interest in this Superbowl. The NFL got what it wanted. East Coast v. West Coast.

    The Saints, like the Chiefs, made some questionable late-game plays that may have doomed their chances to advance. And yes, that was definitely PI! That particular play could encourage the NFL to expand replay or even a ref behind the scene that can overturn obvious no-calls or wrong calls.

    Not a fan of either team in the superbowl, but because I'm so tired of the Pats being in it, I'm going to be the Rams' biggest fan not living in L.A.

    I'm okay with letting the coaches use one (or more) of their allotted challenges to review any play. I am not okay with them getting additional challenges or having unlimited referee challenges. They have already slowed the game down too much as it is.

    Why doesn't the NFL just have video reviewers going over the plays in real time to back up the folks on the field? No reason to stop the action for extended delays. There's already too many adds during games. That's why soccer is so great to watch!

    That's where the people are.
    The people that watch the ads.
    That companies pay huge $$$$ to buy time for.
    So people = $$$$$$$$

    I've said it many times.....there's two things that drive people to do what they do.
    $$$$$$ and A$$.

    Well less people are watching the NFL lately, a lot of them left when the black lives matter protest hit the sidelines.
    What pissed me off this year was the Refs, constant pass interferences, almost routine now, and constant planned
    Hits on QBs to put them out. The Redskins went thru 3 QBs. The Cheatriots have designed blitzes to hit the QB
    Right as he’s releasing the ball, and it doesn’t get called. Another negative and it’s a big one, too many commercials! So revenue is set to decline and the NFL is to slow to change.

    What would be the call? Not arguing, just curious what the infraction would be, if in fact, they do that.

    You all HATE on the Patriots.. Blame cheating, the refs the league what ever.. Guess what, your team is sitting home eating nachos.

    JE and Gronk made big plays and came through in the clutch. give credit when it's due.
    Roughing the passer call was borderline, he did take a swipe at Brady, but they blew the PICK play that put KC in scoring position.

    By the way, KC just fired their Defensive Coordinator. Not because of bad calls or some scandal, because he sucks!

    It
    It s called roughing the QB, hitting when he’s defenseless in the act of throwing the ball. The Patsies use this
    Tactic to hurt or disrupt the QB and they almost never get called for it

    I always thought it was legal to hit the quarterback while in the act of throwing. Did they change that too?

    No they were all legal hits. they didn't drive the QB to the ground. That would be roughing. Or putting their body weight into the QB. All that is Illegal now. What they are trying to say is the Pats run stunts, like all teams have done since the beginning of football. They do it well and get some cracks on the QB.

    Sounds like good defense to me.
