We’ve been about possible missed DPI on the last play.

Well look at this Twitter of the play...if it should have been flagged, it was because there was no official close enough looking at it to see it.

The official close enough to do so had his back to the play and was just in the process of turning around when any interference happened. Side judges would be way too far away to call anything.

Were they out of position, scrambling just like everyone else? I don’t know.

But that’s likely why nothing was called rather than conspiracy.

I still think it would have been not called as I don’t think it was blatant DPI, but I realize I’m in the minority.

Because Heyward-Bey never got OOB...the clock never stopped.

No I know that.

They can stop the clock to let the officials get set for safety purposes. Why not do the same to make sure they're in position for the most important play of the game?

It was a helter-skelter moment...one that probably happens a lot in hurry up.

I'm not even sure the officials weren't in their correct spots...just there was no one that I saw looking directly at the play when it happened.

In season opener after SB officials weren't in position to see Saban toss red review flag after Miller TD. The officials see what they want to see and see what they're told to see. If that was the Patriots with the ball and an opportunity to win the game under the conditions that I believe now exist in the league the officials would have called stopped the clock to stabilize the circumstances and make sure they were adequately and appropriately positioned to review the play and provide the Patriots with the outcome they would have needed.

So you're saying in 2006 the Steelers were one of the favored teams that the NFL took care of and now we're not?

Their interests that day was to support Steelers. Saban few weeks previously snubbed Pres Bush, rejected lunch invite that included other sports guys. When a.sitting US Pres invites you you go, politics aside. He threw the red flag with replays showing Miller's knee down before EZ. Refs turned their backs, ignored him.

Man, I hate Jim Nantz. And, Rodney Harrison is human garbage.

The official responsible for the potential call is standing directly under the goalpost and is looking directly at the hold/DPI.
