NFL adopts rule change after Saints NFC 'No-call'

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Honestly, the proliferation of pass interference penalties over the last decade or so pretty much ruined football for me. I’m just happy that now teams can do something about it....

Ditto, Guido.

Haven't moved on or forgot about Bountygate either!
And won't until Gotohell is removed as commissioner.

When something valuable is stolen from me, I never forget. It becomes a learning experience.

Re: NFL adopts rule change after Saints NFC 'No-call'

I would like to see PO games called the same as RS games. Grabbing the best rated refs for the playoffs is wrong IMO. It should be random just like the RS. Keep the consistency. What it tells me is some of their refs are not that good and should really not be calling games at all or, they want they game called different in the PO's. From a young age I noticed PO games are called much different than RS. It's the wrong approach.

Unless a game official is just that inept (I'd question why he's even in that role), continuity in an officiating crew is vital to avoid micro-political group dynamics in the middle of the tournament...

Because Jim Irsay wouldn't stand for having Bill Belichick's Patriots beating him year in, year out...

Well at least that's happened, which in turn acknowledges that it was in fact a major screwup. Still, as JeannePierre rightly pointed out elsewhere, they really need to make a rule that referees in playoff games can't have connections to the teams or cities involved. It's insane to think that an ex-Rams player should be calling a Rams playoff game. It just shouldn't happen, if only for the appearance of propriety and fairness.

Re: NFL adopts rule change after Saints NFC 'No-call'

I have mixed feelings about this. Yes, I think something needed to be done, but they kind of opened the floodgates and they really didn't need to. There will be some unintended consequences that are going to be eye-sores. Remember, all scoring plays are reviewed. Just wait until a TD gets reversed due to a borderline push-off by the WR or TE and those points come off the board at a pivotal point. Things could get ugly, folks.

Where they REALLY NEEDED to start was make ALL PERSONAL SAFETY issues (personal foul type calls) reviewable. That would have taken care of our issue with the obvious helmet to helmet on TLL. The Dallas helmet to helmet on Kamara. And the BS roughing the passer calls, they could be reviewed and the flag picked up (thinking the Clay Matthews calls and the Brady shoulder pad brush in the AFC Championship game, among countless others). IMO it's the personal foul phantom calls and missed calls which is the greatest sore spot in NFL officiating. I like the way the NBA stops play and proactively reviews replay before following through with a flagrant foul call.
