Dude's giving out blowies to the refs pre-game like the Moonies handing out flowers at the airport in 'Airplane.'
I've got the answer. let the Quarterback keep a yellow flag and use it when needed.
After all, Ahmad Brooks was spot on, "Maybe the officials favor the Saints a little more than us."

Apparently they favor the Saints a lot more than they do the Falcons, even in Atlanta.

Ohhh.....if the calls are this obvious, they're getting the No. 1 seed. Maybe the SB is already decided in November.

Brees vs Brady or Manning, NFL said "Make that s**t happen."
Some interesting numbers about Ron Winter. The article is a couple of years old but it shows how Winter calls a game. http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/tag/_/name/ron-winter

At first hand during real time action it looked like a definite penalty, after watching the replay just ONCE, that s**t ain't no penalty.

and as we saw monday night, they can pick up a flag and say that there is no penalty.. even if the clock has triple zero's

Even in real time i thought it was a good hit. It looked like a standard clean edge sack/fumble. I saw the flag and was yelling that they can't call roughing, must be holding. When the zebras huddled i knew they were talking about calling roughing. They couldn't b talking about holding, that would be a moot conversation. Then instarted yelling u can't call roughing, u just can't. They called it and i didnt even watch the replay. Knew it was b******t. Ive seen that play made 10000 times. But they decided to call it there....

Complete horses**t. The worst part is the league backed the call and even fined brook heftily and made up an interpretation of the rule to justify the call.

Now today, worse foul, same team, same refs, no call....lets see their explanation tomorrow....

Oh oh the refs didnt see it... Even though two refs were staring right at it...

Gets even better, Mike Smith said in the post game conference that he was told by the refs that Ryan wasn't hit in the face or neck area.

Last time I checked, it was called a FACEmask for a reason.

well this is why..this play wasn't a penalty.

Exactly how I feel, it feels like the league has something against us, just a bad feeling.

Still a penalty on both accounts IMO, pretty simple. One was called the other wasn't. Never said anything about poor officiating or them not being consistent.

Can't believe people are still over this.
