Can Someone Explain How It Wasn't a Penalty?

No doubt the Hicks play should have been a penalty, but would the Saints and their fans being calling conspiracy over a non-call from the Brooks hit? I personally don't think the media or the Saints would be discussing the controversial "non-call," and would be replayed as a game changing sack.

If you've ever read anything from a Saints fan you understand that every call that doesn't go their way and every loss is a conspiracy. The Saints never lose a game because they were simply outplayed. In the 2011 playoffs a lot of them still hold onto the belief that they were screwed by the refs despite not being called for a single penalty all game (not joking here).

Saints fans have officially replaced Ravens fans as being the tin-foil-hat-wearing fans of the NFL. They think every game they lose is a conspiracy.
Wow......55 pages and still going. This thread holds the record for the most complaints over one play. I don't recall the controversial last play of the SB to be this bad, smh.

Many plays that game but the helmet to helmet to Crabtree was far worse than some hold on a fade route

Hey...start a thread!
The refs have some explaining to do to the 49ers organization.

There have been so many missed personal foul calls lately yet they have no trouble flagging us for bull s**t.
Vernon's ugly non call face mask penalty would have nullified that fumble...
