  1. Imagine that, the Ravens are gifted 33 yards by an absolutely horrible pass interference call.

    Dan Fouts, who apparently thinks face guarding is a penalty in the NFL, calls it “obvious pass interference.” In reality, it was perfectly defended and incorrectly penalized by an official who didn’t seem to have the right angle to make the call.

  2. Weirdest “pick-six” of all-time in the Steelers-Ravens game. It was ruled an interception returned for a touchdown despite the ball rolling on the ground completely in the view of an official, who missed a CLEAR catch and down by contact ruling. Call was fixed on replay, but it was a shameful, shameful miss to begin with.

  3. Ravens gifted a touchdown by an incredible weak pass interference call on third down against the Steelers. Contact was minimal and certainly less than the receivers prior push-off, which was totally ignored by the officials. It’s just mind-boggling that the Ravens are getting such gifts. They’d be getting blown out if not for these bogus fouls bailing them out.

  4. “There is no obvious visual evidence to overturn the on-field ruling that the runner was short of the line to gain in #LARvsNO, even after piecing together multiple angles.” -AL

    Laughable. The ball was clearly inside the 12 and obviously beyond the line to gain. He proves week after week why he’s unqualified for his position. How can he possibly judge officials’ performances when he can’t even get plays correct himself with the benefit of replay?

  5. Hbk314, it is not laughable. The one angle that clearly shows the stretch going past the line to gain (the last one in the video) you can’t tell if his knee was down prior to the final stretch. On the other angles there just isn’t a clear shot on where the rest of his body is that would allow you to piece it together with the last angle to say there is “clear, uncontroverted evidence that the call on the field was wrong” to quote Ed Hochuli. I think he did make it, but my thinking something is not enough to overturn the call on the field.

  6. It is laughable. I can conclusively state that he had it just by watching the video included with the tweet. The NFL Replay Center and all of its technology should have no problem looking at two angles synced up side-by-side and seeing the obvious in front of them.
