A straight extended arm to the defenders chest isn't a foul? Would two arms be a foul?
Hilarious

Total push off... When is the draft?

Nearly knocking PJ Williams off his feet isn’t a foul — he must be thrown cleanly to the turf

It was a deliberate non-call because Roger. It's not even up for debate.

There is too much subjectivity in the penalties. For years the league has said that they look for full extension of the arm. Well that was a clear extension and by a player with 6 inches of height advantage.

Obvious push off that should have been called. Even Dungy and Harrison agreed.

But this game was lost well before that play.

Yep. CLEARLY PI. The game wasn't lost. Once again the refs interfered to tip the scales. Roger has to go. Let's ban Roger and Dizzle and restore order to the universe.

Wasn't that flagrant of a push-off. Small potatoes compared to what Michael Irvin used to get away with. Don't want to see us focused on the league, we have draft and scout well and reload and put it behind us.

It was lost at the coin flip into OT. Viking fans can’t cry about not getting the ball in 2009 now.
