12:59 AM ET 09.24 | Bill Belichick took issue with the Ravens narrow win over the Patriots, which saw Baltimore kicker Justin Tucker's kick sail above the upright and over the goal post. Everyone on the Patriots sideline thought the kick was no good, but the officials under the goal post ruled otherwise and Patriots head coach Bill Belichick wanted to get one last word in.

Yep and the site this story comes from agrees with you

As a replacement official ran off the field, Belichick went all Harbaugh vs. Schwartz and grabbed the official trying to stop him. The official continued running and Belichick stopped chasing him, likely realizing he was making a fool of himself. He was also likely realizing the fact he had just violated the arm of an official, which is a big no-no.

can you say large fine

Belichick has long been a whiner on the sidelines, scowling and shouting and his holier than thou attitude shown through in jagged fashion Sunday night, but his grabbing of an official is crossing the line in the eyes of the league, especially after this last week. The NFL cracked down on coaches bullying officials and expect Goodell to make an example of Belichick after this incident.

Lovin' it

Yeah I was soooooooo sad! Why the heck did we go for it on fourth and 1? Was our head coach trying to show up his old team or something? 1-2 sucks so bad :(

I go to that site a lot and I really like it. They have some pretty good stuff and it's refreshing to read.

No they weren't supposed to snap the ball they were trying to draw an offside apparently someone forgot to tell the O-line
