A night of pushing, shoving and questionable calls in Baltimore ended the only way possible: with controversy.

The Baltimore Ravens beat the New England Patriots* 31-30 on a last-second field goal that didn't necessarily look like a last-second field goal. Justin Tucker's kick seemed to go over the upright as time expired and immediately was called good.

In the aftermath, Patriots* coach Bill Belichick wanted some explanation or a possible review (although field goals that go above the uprights aren't reviewable). As the officials ran off the field, Belichick ran after them. He grabbed at one official as he passed.

Well, all I know is that after that "league mandate" from Herr Goodell about the coaches and players laying off the replacement refs, I saw an awful lot of screaming and berating of them by several coaches today. I can't wait to see how Der Kommissar (over)reacts to this.

Hmmmmmm........controversy surrounding the Patriots*.....I just can't belive it!




This was one of those games where I hate both teams soooooooo much, that I can't feel good about it no matter what the outcome. Although, it would have been better for us if the Ratbirds would have lost.

Btw, GODdell isn't going to a damn thing. It was HIS boy Brady's coach that grabbed a ref. All will be forgiven.

Bill had a reason to be pissed. Ravens won the game on a missed field goal.

This whole season is screwed.

I predict a Lions/Bengals SB.

I keep hearing people say that, but the kick was good. It was close, but it was good. It's deceptive because of the camera angle. I even saw a fan video from behind the goal post that made the kick look even more wide right. But that view is deceptive as well. The kick was angling right, and you can't tell where it was at when it went through (or by) the goal post. The ref on the right side had the best view. Look at this video at about the 25 second mark. To me, it clearly shows the ball inside the goal post. It went wide right after it went through (barely). Also, other than the one Patriots* player who signaled "no good," which isn't uncommon on close kicks, no other player gave any indication that the kick was no good. Based on their reactions, they thought it was good.

Alright, i'll give you that, but it's no lie that the refs kept the Ravens in the game. Several bad calls. Patriots* should have won it, and this is the first time I've EVER stood up for them. Better be the last time too.

I think the 49ers if I were going to guess. (but how dare I...Season just started). I'm still pissed about the loss...ruined my whole day of hazing my coworkers.

Haha...I'll agree that the 9ers have a good shot. I was just kidding, thinking that with how bad these refs suck that it would make it easier for the least likely teams to get in the SB. It's gonna be a loooong season, that's all I know.

I would bet they won't do nothing to him. The Pats* are the "Chosen One's'" from what I read.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Great teams overcome adversity, they don't make excuses.

IMO, anyone blaming the officiating for losing (or winning) the game is just looking for an excuse. Yeah there are some bad calls, but let's face it if the defenses made a play here and there then it wouldn't come down to the refs.

The refs didn't give up a 64 yard run. They didn't give up a 30 yard pass play. Maybe they have missed a few calls but I think they're doing a good job. And honestly, I like the fact that we're actually seeing some real football not some pansy league where everyone is protected (except the defense).
