Patriots given extra timeout!!

Re: Patriots given extra timeout!!
 
I think that was just an error by the network TV provider. Besides, the refs in this game didn't know what a timeout signal was anyway.

If they are reading this then I can tell them it is when someone (particularly a QB in this instance) places one hand out with the palm down. Then puts the other hand's fingertips directly in the middle of the palm of the first hand. When that occurs these said refs should immediately blow their devices which are handing around their necks called whistles.

That stops the play and the team who had a person perform this timeout stance can regroup and talk over how impressive the refs were to actually look at the QB during a play.

The play resumes after a set time and the game is now legal.

No offense to you Saints1234 because I know you're just posting this.

The Fox graphic is NOT the official game timeout counter.
There was a TV timeout in there and the Saints took a timeout.

I'm super disappointed in our fanbase. I'm seeing people crying like children all over the internet after a loss to a solid team. We're sounding like falcons life with the conspiracy theories.

If the NFL finds the Pats got an extra timeout, they'll make that determination. Still will do NOTHING to give us a W we did not earn. I wouldn't want a win like that anyway. We lost the game guys and gals, beaten by a superior force. We'll learn and adjust and live to die another day.

We're really sounding like crybaby bad sports who cannot take or handle a loss. You take the loss, give congrats the other team and move on. I'm sorry that I'm realizing how many of our fans are unsportsman bandwagoneers. I digress....

The time outs were correct. There wasn't any additional time outs granted.
The problem I had yesterday was the inconsistent calls by the officials. If you are going to error on the safe side in PF calls on WR, do it both ways. Hell the NE defender gave himself a concussion on the hit on Sproles and you can see the official reach for his flag then take his hand away. We didn't bring our A game but there were at least 4 calls or non calls that hurt us yesterday.

Agreed Halo. After the game I felt like we had 2 chances to seal it. We didn't. I called my old man and told him that the Saints are fine. 5-1. Going into the bye to get healthy. A lot of is were saying we would be 4-2 or worse through this stretch. We played the Fins, then the Bears and Pats on the road. We lost to the Pats. Oh well. The Saints are still primed for a fantastic season. We weren't going to run the damn table. We have some very important games coming up against San Fran and Seattle. Get healthy and kick ass!

This video response should clear this up.
To the person who made the original video, step away from your computer and take deep some breaths.

If only your fanbase had more fans like you. Instead all I'm seeing is people blaming the refs and now the patriots getting an extra timeout *Which is not true by the way* on why you guys lost. Its pathetic guys. You lost to the better team that day. They made more plays. Only losers make excuses. Own up to the loss!!

Halo is right, but there's another dimension to the anti-ref talk, and it's this: officiating in the NFL is at an abysmally low level. It has reached the point where people expect every game to have lousy officiating...and they're usually right. It's true that both sides have to play through bad officiating, just as they do the weather, and in theory it evens out; but accepting that as simply an unchangeable fact only helps to perpetuate the problem. Unfortunately, the only way to force the NFL to clean up its act is to challenge the legitimacy of the outcome...and when you do that, you inevitably come off as whiny.

Maybe the solution would be for the punditry to take up a real controversy, and an important one, with the same fervor they display for a phony one like the Redskins' name.

I understand what you mean but Saints' fans rarely blame anything and are owning up to the loss. Hey, the Pats made the play after all.

But my point is these were soooo obvious that they need to be pointed out. One loss to an AFC opponent. So what. Blatant ineptness of epic proportions by refs getting paid big money. Really is a big deal. Just my $.02.
