NFL says Staley shoudn't have had penalty. Shouldve been first and goal at the 3.

The officiating definitely felt lopsided, but I don't think that was purposeful. I just think we had some bad luck.

1. The Niners' front seven was being held all day. Bakthiari had his hands inside Aldon's jersey on almost every play. The Niners' offensive line may have done some of the same, but not to the same extent. It seems like the refs are missing more common place infractions because they are looking for new rule violation.

2. The Clay Matthews late hit and his "taunting" after a sack were egregious misses. The refs admitted to making mistakes, so I wonder if this game will be reviewed by the league office.

3. The biggest problem is the mental mistakes. Offsides, false starts, and clock management.

Thing is, every team is going to come at us trying to kill Kap.
First post! This is the way it should have been in the first place:

Edit: someone else just posted as well but definitely the correct call is being made.

Yeah, he shoulda been tossed, especially after the punches. He could have seriously hurt Kap, that launching around stuff is how Jerry was hurt way back in the day by Sapp.

Agreed, Clay should have been ejected for throwing a punch
Clay got lucky as hell. He should have been tossed in the 2nd quarter, and he avoided a taunting penalty against Kap somehow. I guess the NFL has their favorites too. I don't think James Harrison for example would get away with that stuff.
He will be fined. Question. Is how much?

Lots of GB fans are saying they got screwed because the refs mishandled the offsetting penalties replaying 3rd down instead of making it 4th down, where we likely kick a field goal.

Today the NFL says Staley should not have received penalty so we got screwed in reality. It should've been 1st and goal at the 3.

Doesn't matter, our man Colin just made it easy and threw a TD on the next play!

So now that it's made known that Joe Staley shouldn't have been penalized and therefore there would have been no offsetting penalty and a replay of the down or in other words the fact that they replayed the down was actually correct makes the TD scored on the next play perfectly legitimate. So screw Clay Matthews and the fudge Packers.

Fined sure, but I want him suspended too. The league has to send a message to players about targeting QBs and other players. What Matthews did was just as bad if not worse than the antics of Suh and few other league miscreants.
