Interference Calls

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I didn't have the advantage of multiple replays, but it looked to me like there were several blown PI calls and no-calls today. We were given a couple, but Colston got mugged in the end zone. Anyone have a thought ...

Interference Calls

Anyone have a thought on Grimes' non-interception?
I thought he pushed off too early and that's why he got the flag. Everyone around was screaming 'he was going for the ball'. True, but he ran through a guy to get it

I am sure you're hearing much crying in Turds country ... but good teams find a way to overcome adversity in winning!

We're starting to gt this crap every week. Goes with the territory. Losers whine that the refs cost them the game rather than being humble enough to admit that they weren't good enough to win.

Grimes pushed off, and it was not an interception. Over the course of the game, judgment call balance themselves out. Saints pulled out another one because they know they will. That's how a team avoids whining about refs.

Re: Interference Calls

well they had a legit complaint about the spot. The one play that spot was absolutely terrible, and they had a legit complaint, but calls go both ways most of the time

Re: Interference Calls

I might not have called interference on Grimes but it definitely was illegal contact which would have been a 1st down anyway only difference was the penalty yards.

My thoughts exactly. He can turn his head and go for the ball all he wants but he plowed the receiver to do it

Re: Interference Calls

After that no-call offensive pass interference on Roddy White during the Monday Night game, they owed us a few anyway LOL...

Re: Interference Calls

.. tell the Clowns to look at it as payback on the Roddy White TD in the Dome and move on.
