You guys know more. Please explain why...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Why wasn't the hit of Kamra called as a helmet to helmet hit? Why wasn't the eyegouge on Thomas called? You can't tell me the refs missed BOTH of those... Or were they not penalties?...

Why was Zach Miller robbed of a TD? Why didnít we get penalized for the blatant neutral zone infraction against Carolina? Sometimes you get the calls, sometimes you donít. We really need to get over it... We sound like such freakiní crybabies.

Easy to say. I'm being truthful in my confusion.

Should I be pissed because of **** calls? I remember a hit like that agaisnt Eddie George playing Pittsburg AND another on Deuce when we were playing SF. Helmet to helmet, knocked both of them out of the game.

Penalty/missed call or not?

Sorry man, I didnít mean to sound like I was being rude. Iím just so ready for the Jets game so we can put that Thursday night debacle behind us.

Personally, yeah the one on Michael Thomas should have been a flag but Iím not one who believes the Kamara hit was a penalty.

Chris, no worries. I'm not meaning to *****. I am very serious. I see hits with what i see as lesser infractions get called. So I would honestly like to know...

The helmet hit was more of a sheet hit. It has to be a direct hit with a lead for them to call it. It was likely still intentional but harder to detect IMO. Eye poke, impossible to call. I think everyone should be wearing shields like MI but it's optional obviously. MT likely goes that route next year after that situation. It's also harder to facemask. I know I would be wearing one. It was not an accident though. MT was killing them.

The Kamara hit, the dude didn't lead with his helmet. He lead with his shoulders square then his helmet made direct contact.
It wasn't deliberate.

It has a lot to do with what the player intends to do.
It was mostly a clean hit that freakishly landed into Kamara's brain.
It never looked like the defender deliberately hit Kamara in the head.

Michael Thomas - that was a deliberate eye poke They missed that.
Refs also missed a tons of holding calls by the falcon offensive line.

I agree, glad to get this one behind us. Tired of talking about it.

Kamara wasn't considered a defenseless player as he had caught the ball and made a few football moves.

The Michael Thomas eye gouge though......who knows why that wasn't called.

Rb’s rarely get that call, but I wondered the same thing. Poked in the eye happens to someone in just about every game. Seahawk fans are the worse at officiating whining, for the most part I believe we are better than those clowns. We take care of business not just in that game but most, and we win....officiating over sights happen. Just for an exercise, troll any teams forums and you will see post regarding shoddy officiating. Happens every game, for every team and every fan forum has a post about. I say we move along....marching to the playoffs.
