and I'd also like to say 'sorry' , but you are not making the playoffs

screw those undisciplined thugs- that was like watching the Miami Hurricanes or the Raiders, after the talent got old: they're taunting and talking, meanwhile they're down 3 scores. Pettigrew was talking after every play

I can't point to an example from memory, but I swear that in the old days even just TOUCHING an official used to mean automatic ejection....

Actually, we were playing rough after the whistle and got under their skin and they were undisciplined and got the call. There were several plays I watched where we could have easily gotten a flag. I imagine the refs are going to watch us closer down the stretch.

I thought that both teams were guilty of penalties called and penalties not called. Watch the Moore TD. The defender was doing something to Lance on the ground that wasn't called.
