Is It Clear?

Although my recent rhetoric would indicate otherwise, I do not like to blame the refs. You have to overcome bad calls and in general all teams have to do it.

But today, as with recent games, it is ever clear to me that the Saints not only have to beat the team they're playing, they also have to overcome what, to me, is a clear bias by the league to manipulate the outcome of the games.

We simply have to play cleaner than the other team. I hate that Roger has done this to the NFL. I really do. It puts extra pressure on us. And we're not the only team suffering from a league bias.

Good win today. Nice job by the entire organization. Way to keep your heads up in an environment that is clearly stacked against you.

How many dancing bananas will Saintfan award YOU????

Re: Is It Clear?

It was blatant and it is undeniable.

3-25 Panthers
12-123 Saints
Hands to the face can be called on every play.
If you want to manipulate the outcome? Call that in key spots.
The PI in their last drive was an obvious : "F you. We can do what we want and you are powerless."
They will screw us in the playoffs.
That, they are telegraphing.

No person on the planet can tell me the Panthers didn't have more than 3 penalties the entire game. I never blame the refs, but it so damn clear they are against us, Stevie Wonder can see it.

Btw just for the comment Saints got flagged 15 yards...

Re: Is It Clear?

The reviewable PI rule has been an absolute s**tshow, not just towards us but in so many other games during the season. It was the wrong solution to be sure, and I knew it all along. They really need to scrap it this off-season.

We got hosed a fair amount in this game, but really the offensive playcalling got really wonky at key times in the second half and that was was what kept Carolina in the game in the first place. Should have played it smarter and put the game away.

The play calling on both sides of the ball was bad. Not covering cmc like a blanket just drives me crazy... Payton called himself out in the post game presser for play calling.

What little Iíve been on here this season, Iíve been saying it all season.
But you,Saintfan, has been saying longer and louder than anybody.
Roger Goodell will NOT let us win another Super Bowl...period.

Re: Is It Clear?

Yeah I mean, the thing that sucks though is what’s the point of even caring week in and week out if the league wants to screw us? They won’t let us even get to the Super Bowl... let alone win one.

At this point its only Goodells fault for not putting a stop to Al Riveron, why Sean Payton was talking about the need for a commitee of ppl on replay, theirs no trust in Riveron and his band of misfits.
