this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I heard a whistle too, at the end of the game with their QB on his knees. Game Over...

I'd have to agree--I think the real victory was with the officials, who seemed to have their pockets lined--even on the Jimmy Graham call, where his knee, and heel had definitely touched down, before his foot ever dropped a bit and the air kicked up a bit of chalk.

But Christ, that whole game, we were fighting against the officials. They played better against the Saints' than TN did.

HOWEVER.

Jimmy Grahams TD WAS A TD!! When did the rule change? Catch ball in endzone...2 feet touch...roll outa bounds...keep possession of ball throughout roll on ground.......THAT = A TOUCHDOWN EVERY TIME!!!!
Cmon seriosly,we see this same play wk in and wk out,throughout the league!
THAT WAS A TOUCHDOWN!!
Yep, seems like they missed the fact that a "heel" is part of a "foot," and when that heel hit, it was a touchdown. Anything after that, whatever chalk came up, was irrelevant.

I saw another strange call where they said "The IR system is down, so we'll have to accept the call on the field." I think it was the GB game.

Like I said, I got the distinct feeling the refs didn't want the Saints' to win, or were shaving points to buy some Christmas presents.

All the calls seemed to happen on big plays too, for massive yards, or scoring plays, which tends to make one, generally suspicious.

And while I do say "Hey, that spot is bad, or that wasn't much contact," from time to time, usually upon review I am amazed at how close they got the spot, or I'll say "Yep, that was holding," or "Uh huh, he interfered." So I'm not a guy who gets pissed every time someone calls a penalty on the Saints' as they get it right amazingly and repeatedly.

But this game, was to say the least, very fishy. Even the reviews, every one of them went TN's way. I'm not clear on what the rule is, but on that "pass" (it was called upon review) the arm wasn't moving at all, and to me it looked more like the hit caused the movement forward. Is that called a pass? I felt like that movement was involuntary, but maybe it is called a pass anyway. Even the guys calling the game seemed to think the officiating was suspect.

Well we had to do something, since the refs weren't doing their job right!

I hear whistles from the stands in just about every game...and I'm frikkin hard of hearing! I even ask my wife occasionally about whistles I hear that's NOT at the end of a play, and she'll tell me it's just someone in the stands. My point is, that it's not uncommon.

The refs didn't give them a favorable spot on the QB sneak, which could have been argued by the Titans. I don't think they were out for the Saints specifically, I think they just sucked all the way around.

I will throw a couple of bucks in the pot for this. Pissy whiny crap. YOu lost get over it. If CJ2K had more than 23 yards on 11 carrys - you probably win the game.

Lots of bad calls ON BOTH SIDES & lots of bad calls throughout the league.

The refs need to learn to let the players actually PLAY THE FRIPPEN GAME.

I do not know about the SProles TD but according to the rule all parts of both feet need to be in & Graham's toes were on the line - not a TD.

Or we could all send them thousands of toy kiddie whistles ... may be just as effective ... it'd be worth the 2 dollars it may cost us each ...
What's the Titans address again?

Stunning.

Those Titans must have Daredevil like hearing to define location like that.
