Seeing as how the niners likely wouldn't have made it to the SB without a more obvious PI/Holding call NOT being made in the NFC championship makes Jim's whining more sour grapesy..
But but but YankeeDave, you forgot to beeotch about the helmet to helmet hit on Crabtree the play before he was gang raped in the endzone!
I think all you can ask is that the refs be consistent and they were consistently bad. It was like they were afraid to make a call. While everyone is asking for a flag for the hit on Flacco, on the same play Pitta was held and hugged by 2 players, which is why Joe had to throw the ball away.
Of course the whole country is saying this but when I do, it makes me a troll. Take your win, tainted as it is.
The OB hit on Flacco, if called would have given another four downs in which the Ravens might have scored a TD in lieu of a FG.
The running into the kicker, if not called, keeps 3pts off the 49ers scoreboard.
The non call on the 4th and goal was exactly like the one in the ATL/SF Conference Championship. If that one were called as you (and "... the whole country ..." wanted), SF is more than likely not in the SB.
We can list at least a dozen more plays that should have drawn flags, but didn't.
I've written before that we fans always call for consistency. When we get it as we did on Sunday, why complain?
What has made you a troll is 1) your obvious hatred of the Ravens - not unexpected in a 'Skins fan; and 2) repeating what every other hater says.
Yeah, everyone is a hater for calling a bad call a bad call. Your victim mentality never ends.
Hail needs to remember that ever if SF had scored, the Ravens would have had about a minute and a half with 3 time outs to get into field goal range. No guarantee the Ravens would have lost even if SF had scored.
Not only was the pass uncatchable, but the naysayers are acting like the 49ers win if the flag is thrown. They still would have had to punch it in against the best redzone D in the league. If they did happen to score, my money was on Joe Flacco to drive them back down for a game tying field goal.
