You aren't getting it. A 2 yard catch would have ran 40 seconds off the clock and after Prater misses the FG Baltimore wouldn't have scored the TD. The refs also don't usually call holding on a third and one up the middle but they did

I'M GETTING IT. I'm just not blaming them for not calling it.

And yes, the 3rd and 1 call was absurd, I agree, but thats apples and oranges in this case.

I understand that the 40 seconds might have made a difference, but this odd possibility isn't reason to call, what i consider, a bull**** penalty at the time. It's sort of like when referee's guesstimate spots on first and second down, but then pull out chains to see if a ball is within an eighth of an inch of the sticks on 4th. There are soooo many other worthy penalties to rightly b**** about. To me, that's not one.

Good lord. I thought I was pretty much over all of this and then I watched that damn video.

I was downing a ton of beer at the bar as the game went on and people were looking at me like I was crazy for going on a tirade on that tripping/non-call PI play on DT. From that point on there was a nice 3 ft radius of empty space around me as I was the "angry fan," but dammit we were ****in' robbed by the refs. I don't even remember some of these from the 4th quarter on, I just know I was in a rotten g.d. mood.

Back to the fridge for another beer.

i know it was me and a few other posters that said the replacement refs werent any worse than the regular refs. the regs just moved the game more quickly. i thought it was funny that the "tuck rule" screwed the raiders back then. that same rule shouldve applied to us. Owell .
no wonder i just dont care like i used to.
