“Whoa...sorry about that, Joe. Shouldn't buy them cheap helmets. Ask Lenny Dawson.I guess it should’ve been a penalty if you’re going with the pussified letter of the law. But it was clearly unintentional and no way was he trying to go for the head.
that's cool, as I said initially, and as it would appear in this thread commentary and interpretation, it's a 50/50 whether the flag gets tossed IMO. He could have been given the intentional spearing and it would not have surprised me just as this non call does not surprise me. The ones that really bother me thus far are the very obvious penalties....I mean SO OBVIOUS anyone can see it from the nosebleed section of the stadium, that don't get called. That would be the Saints/Rams PI non call last year. That would also be the SF/SEA non call interference on Warner , a total no brainer, to at least REVIEW it so they could see how blatant it was. Al Riveron's explanation was totally made up BS.I have no dog in this fight. I see a legit tenacious persuit, then at last minute head turned down to spear what it can.
I have spoken.
If it were some scrub going helmet to helmet with Brady, what would the fine be?
Never mind fines, there'd be rule changes (like what happened after the Bernard Pollard play in 2008). The NFL cares about player safety when it's someone like Brady, but they don't give a shit about the rest of the league.If it were some scrub going helmet to helmet with Brady, what would the fine be?
You have learned well and are clearly going to be a better leader of the It's Rigged Movement (IRM) than I ever was. Keep telling it like it is, or at least how it seems.Never mind fines, there'd be rule changes (like what happened after the Bernard Pollard play in 2008).

Yes.We know the lowest SB ratings would be for the Titans, Texans & Vikings, so it will be in one of those games. I’m gonna go with exactly what happened between the Chargers & Texans on opening weekend some 7-8 years ago. The 49ers will miss the game-winning FG, but the Vikings will get the “lineman bulled over the center” penalty (which I still have yet to figure out the point of this penalty) and then get another chance 5 yards closer & seal the victory.
Shouldn’t this have its own thread?
