OT: Patriots no longer get the calls

Recommended Posts

I feel like I'm in bizzarro universe reading their boards.  Many are convinced that the league has it rigged against them.

 

Like, were their fans around for the past 20 years?  Starting w/ the tuck rule, and all of the Bills games in that time?  I remember defenders getting 15 yards for just getting close to Brady. I remember one Pats game where the Bills had 3 PI's at or near the endzone called against them, all ticky tack or phantom.  It was impossible playing that team on a level field.

 

Well, it has all come home to roost.  They actually see the Bills as the "darlings" who get all of the calls now.  Here's hoping we win next week on a bogus call or 2.

Every single fan base feels that they get screwed over by the refs and have conspiratorial thoughts about why the NFL doesn't want them to win.  The fact of the matter is that refs make mistakes and there's negative and positive variance within that.

 

 

Don't use this logic here, that's not what the internet is for

I remember the 3rd down sack and J Hughes slapped a Bills player on the helmet in celebration and got an Unsportsmanlike penalty, followed by 2 more 3rd down BS PI's on the same drive!

 Or the ever infamous "Just give it to them" phantom 1st down. That quote was actually heard and confirm from NE reporters who overheard the refs talking prior to them giving NE a 1st on a play that wasn't a 1st down.

 

 Then a phantom pi on a hailmary in the endzone soon after, giving them the game.
