Williams Not Fined For Shoving Ref.

So Ravens have all out immunity to penalties and fines (and criminal infractions in an obvious Ray Lewis reference). It's one of the perks when your god's chosen team.

LOL. Keep in mind this is the same league that fines players $10,000+ for wearing their socks too low. What a joke.
They hand picked refs to do hand picked things.

This is true. They wanted an officiating crew that would keep the flags in their pockets, and that's what they got. Unfortunately, it resulted in the worst officiated SB in NFL history.

This....so much this!!!
idc, doesn't change anything.
Jim Harbaugh should send a third-stringer shove a ref on the first play next year to make the league look like the joke it is,

I wanna know if Vegas had anything to do with this. This was the most bet on SB in history and that's a lot to leave to chance.

This!
The refs just do what they're told, they're told not to call penalties, they don't call penalties. How can an NFL game be called with NO holding penalties the entire game? Holding can be called on every down but in the Super Bowl not one. The mugging style of play employed by the Ravens is tailor made for no penalties. One pass interference call, against the 49ers, at the most crucial point of the game with 9:40 left. The refs were told not to call anything, and they did their job to preserve their employment. Did the refs cost us a Super Bowl, yes. However, the Ravens and the refs did not beat us, we beat ourselves.
Didn't anyone here get the memo? the superbowl was a formality, it was decided Crazy Knife Ray Ray and his band of merry men were getting the Lombardi regardless of score...
THis b***h is getting whats coming to him...let's hope the niners don't forget.
