    It seems in many of these games the officials are simply too eager to toss a flag. It is killing the spontaneous excitement of a big play or a TD when the first thing we do is look for a flag. This past game was ridiculous. Please don’t tell me the Bucs committed more rules infractions than the Saints. How about take on the “No Harm No Foul” approach. If a hold didn’t affect the play, make it a no call. If a receiver and defender bump into each other, don’t automatically throw a flag against the defense. If a defender’s hand just grazes the receiver’s facemask it’s not the same as sticking his hand inside it pushing the head back. You don’t call that in OT. You don’t call the tackle for lining up slightly back unless you call it every play on both teams or at least give a warning. When the penalties are so against one team vs the other it makes you wonder. I still haven’t gotten over the offensive pass interference call against K2 in the Detroit game or the bogus leaping call against Simeon Rice against the Colts. All together now, Bullspit, Bullspit!

    The game is becoming to much like the NBA. Officials calling tick, tack fouls that really kill the flow of the game. I to look for the flag now after every play. I read the book by the NBA ref that fixed games, and believe it’s true. That league loves the big market teams, and their draw, so when you see the Knicks get more calls then the Kings you wonder. Now Brees throws 57 times, and with my own eyes I see McCoy being held all game with no flag!! Come on man!!
