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.

https://t.co/4OerTkMB5c

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?

Because “Your ability to make good judgments is much easier on Thursday night than during the heat 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.

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

Oh wow...he blended in. I completely missed him.

Never mind on my whole thread, then.

That was a blatant hold, throughout the entire play.

I've seen a lot of teams get called for less obvious holds.

Where is the back judge? Rogers is the only WR running a route. Should be easy to officiate that play.

I just re-watched on a bigger screen.

Bryant did that to gronk and was called.

Bogus. If they call one, call the other.

That's two missed calls inside of 50 seconds.

There was not a single judgement cal against the Pats. Nada. At Heinz. Utter bullshit. Pats were helped lightly on their last two SB wins with curious blown calls.

Ding, ding, ding! I yelled it out when it happened live. The back judge was 18 feet away and had a perfect (unobstructed) view of Rowe (#25) pulling (with his right hand) the back of Eli's jersey 12 inches from his body (slowing his forward momentum and turning him a bit) all the while slingshot-ing his own body forward enough to get his left hand on the pass that ended in an interception. Eli was screaming/waving for the call while he was going to the ground as the play continued.

THAT REF COMPLETLY SWALLOWED HIS WISTLE ON THAT PLAY. F'ING CHOKED ON IT HE HAD TO SWALLOW IT SO HARD! THIS REF TEAM WAS MADE EVRY AWARE OF THEIR FLAG HAPPY REP, SO THEY CHOSE TO DO THE OPPOSITE (AT LEAST FOR THE PATS) BEFORE THE GAME. :evil:

Pats penalties:

2 for 5 yards. Both were automatic calls.

The idea that there wasn't a single instance of holding, DPI, or whatnot committed throughout the game is nigh absurd.

The only really egregious non- all against the Patriots I saw was on Burkhead’s TD. One of our guys was held in the exact same fashion as AV’s hold later in the game.

But since not every play is replayed...who knows?
