As I see it, the biggest problem with Aikman and Buck's comments was that it incited an entire group of fans to believe that they were getting screwed over by the officials. When a defensive player hits a receiver hard either a) in the head "helmet to helmet", b) when the receiver is a defenseless receiver, or c) late, the defensive player will very often draw a flag. Those rules are put in place for player safety.
Frankly, I think Aikman and Buck should be fined for their untenable opinion that the penalty's were uncalled for and for ignoring the leagues encouragement of player safety.
Sure, the camera picked up on Boldin's "headbutt" (if you could call it that), and I think all Niner fans would agree that it could have drawn a flag. What we don't know is how many other times other players also did the same exact thing and didn't get flagged. It was a chippy game, there were players in each others face masks all game long, I think that it is a fair assumption that other similar things were happening all game long on both sides.
Of course the casual Panther feels like their team got screwed by the officials, Aikman and Buck told them they were for about three hours yesterday. That shouldn't happen.
