Default NFL Live 1/14/2013 Ravens get away with practice kick

Anyone else see today's NFL live?

Apparently at the end of the 5th Quarter the Ravens sent their kicker out for a practice kick. I thought this was not allowed outside of pre-game and at the half? He barely made the kick as it was.

Trey Wingo and Mangini both agreed this was against the rules.

If they did drop a flag (which the officals were loath to do vs the Ravens most of the night) should it have been a 15 yard Foul or 10 yard delay of game?

I don't like complaining about poor officiating but it is clear that they not only missed the Decker tipped INT returned for a TD and the Carter PI which was questionable at best, then there are the 3 holding calls on run plays...etc...The Broncos should file a grievance at the least.

Funny how Gumble and Dierdorf didn't point this out out of the break. This is as bad as the Pat's clearing the snow for the kicker back in the 80's.

Too bad no one on our side took the initiative to physically stop them. I wonder if the raven players would have let us get away with that on their turf?

Wonder if our bench made a big deal about it, or noticed it. That's ****ed up that they got a free kick.

Coach Fox just said the ST coach did notice it and was yelling at the Side Judge, but they just ignored him.

i heard someone on the radio say it is against the rules, but it is not penalized. Fox said he informed the refs, but by the time they told him to leave the field, he already got 1 practice kick.

A grievance with the league better be filed.

Yeah, they did. That little leg-whip on DThomas was sort of ignored.

Yep, and Tucker continued to practice kicks during the pre-game armed forces ceremony. They had to go around him. It was a Bush league move. There were quite a few of us in the stands that were pissed.

If it's not penalized then what's the point in having the rule. That's just insane. If you enforce it with a real penalty, then you won't see anybody doing it again. That's why he went out there. If it's a penalty, he doesn't go out there. Obviously this needs to be addressed in the rules offseason.

Not to the extent of what happened on Saturday. I've never seen anything like it. They were marching onto the field in formation and he was right in their path. Tucker and 5 or 6 trainers didn't move.

I read the same thing yesterday. They're supposed to stop it but there isn't a penalty for it.

I really hope somebody puts together a video compilation of all the calls/non-calls Denver got jobbed on. That would really be something to see.

Ya know I agree with ya we got hosed by the officials but if we whine about every little call or no call we are gonna look like a little biatch especially after the way we played on offense and defense.

ST was great ecept for Prater.............hitting the ground before the ball.........really ?

We lost because we played our worst game of the season, along with bad play calls and "Rahim the Dream" turning into a nightmare. Get over the practice kicks.

All that needed to happen was for one of our players to stand right in the way. I was yelling that at the TV. Everyone just stood there crying like a bunch of girls. Get in the way.

There is no penalty for it so it is a moot point.

There is no penalty for our players physically blocking an illegal practice kick. Better yet, kick the ball away from the holder while the opposing kicker lines up.

They did point it out. As they were coming off the break. After how bad the game was officiated I didn't even care at that point. The refs had already left their mark on the game at that point.

Better yet, pull a "Lucy" to the kicker's "Charlie Brown" and let him fall on his ***.
