A holding call in the endzone results in a safety. BAL didn't care about being flagged for that since they were going to take a safety anyways.
Why didn't any refs throw a flag? Who cares, the game was over.
Even if they throw a flag the play continues to it's end, the time runs off and is not put back no matter what. End zone holding isn't like a false start that immediately stops play.
It's got nothing to do with the practical impact IMO. It's about integrity. How do they miss/ignore seven holds?
Exactly that's the real point
The league always talks about the integrity of the game
It tells you what we all already know : once the playoffs and certainly the superbowl comes to town the refs call it different.
The refs came out flat, the niners came out flat and the ravens took advantage.
They were opportunistic during the playoffs and it paid off
We're the sorrry looser
we're still at the wrong end of the stick
But hey if we're made of champions stuff we'll go all the way next year
Remember how BW worked with adversity ? Remember after the refs cost us the 1983 season CG at redskins when we came flat in the first half ?
He pumped up the team with the us against the world mojo.
The rest is history
We cannot dwell on this
We know what happened, we're no fools, we've got a long memory and we' ll be prepared
Count on JH for this
Just one thing to say right now :
carpe diem and Goooooooooooooo NINERS !!!!!!!!!!!!
