Not to disagree with the "it's football" comment because I don't mind when players get away with physical play. The problem is that they were getting away with much more than the niners were. I thought the Goldson personal foul was much less egregious than some of the stuff they were pulling by taking players down by the head. It could be complete bias because of my allegiance to the niners but it just seems that week in and week out were screwed by bad calls.
You know how it goes. The Pansy Cortland Finnegan hits a receiver. The receiver retaliates and gets flagged, not Finnegan. The
2nd guy always gets called, not the guy who started it. Dahl and Finnegan are two of the biggest punks out there but they don't
get reprimanded because they know how to get away with stuff.
Yeah I agree with that too. It's pretty frustrating to watch. The Niners are a hard-nosed team that hits hard (and legally most of the time). What is frustrating is the other teams that show up and try to be more "physical", and in the meanwhile, they are getting away with cheap shots while the niners are getting flagged for very tick tack plays.
There's really nothing we can do about it, so really it comes down to the fact that our coaches and players need to man up and do a better job.
