That's the truth.
Yeah at the time i stated that the b******te call will cost us the division. And it did.
There were so many other close calls as well....Deangelo Williams fumbling, Shaub full retard pick 6, Rams full retard goal line fail, tampa bay 21-0 lead or some s**t like that....
But then again we had our close calls as well (bowman pick 6 and Kap's near int to micah hyde).
The Brooks call is the only one I really care about for some reason. I've seen many many bad calls over the years, but this one is the one call, where I feel we were truly robbed of a game.
At first I thought some idiot made a personal foul after the play, but nope, the idiot official just took the game away from us on a rule that only serves to PRETEND to help players.
On that same note, notice how many helmet to helmet collisions there were in the Super Bowl? Rightly or wrongly, none of those were penalties. But the point is, you are not going to eliminate those types of hits by stealing critical games away from Super Bowl contenders with your childish "statement" penalty calls.
That penalty made a statement. That is all Goodell cares about. It got national attention and it said to the world, "We care about player safety, see?" The fact that they are willing to alter the course of a critical game from two Super Bowl contenders, showed how much they "care".
Missing a call is one thing, but making a b******t political statement, at our expense, by using a COMPLETELY HARMLESS tackle, is too much to swallow.
