NFL  > General NFL  > Horrible officiating in Ravens/Clowns game
September 26, 2010, 04:18 PM
Had the officiating been fair we win by 5 + TDs. One of the Browns ham and egger D linemen took a swing at Oher and Heap and WE get penalized?!?!?!? ARE U KIDDING ME?!?!?! Several other garbage calls cost us about 3 TDs. Not one call was fair except the false start calls.

As it is Ravens still win and we are en route to the Super Bowl while Cleveland should probably lose their team to a real city and WILL be 0 - 16.

En route to the Super Bowl.. but giving up 144 on the ground to Peyton Hillis? I expect more from a Ray Lewis led D..

1. Ravens get a personal foul called for a retaliation shove. (And Oher swung on Cleveland, not the other way around).

2. Browns get the same personaly foul called on Ben Watson after Oher, again, instigated a fight and Watson sat him on his blindside.

3. Win by 5+ TDs? This was not you playing Madden. This was a hard fought divisonal game that could have ended either way.

4. The zebras are human and do the best that they can. Again, this was not a video game.

5. Fact: you are just ticked that the Browns almost beat you in your house; and aside from a few blunders at the end of the game, they probably should have. So what do you do? Instead of blaming your defense for their inability to stop P. Hillis, you want to blame the refs. The offensive playcalling was not exactly a secret--give it to Hillis and see if they can stop him. Even with eight in the box, Hillis still pounded the Ravens defense. Call the game for what it was: two teams that know each other very well that were slugging it out. Y'all won that round....see you in Cleveland for round two.

Rational thought? With the loser that started this thread. I'm afraid you're wasting your breath.
