See the penalty from start to finish......if there is a player blocking your view and your view is interrupted ...See the penalty from start to finish.

I threw a block in the back flag on a screen pass while I was at the LOS. You see the track start and can almost read the player's mind. 26 launched, then suddenly a receiver blocked my view. 26 was headed in one direction and 82 in another falling away from each other. My hand was ready grabbing my flag. Flag out and I immediately thought, I was blocked from seeing contact. Runner down stooped the clock made sure the Umpire had the spot, then ran immediately to the only set of eyes looking at the action from the backside of the play. One question "Did 26 hit 82 from behind?" "No he missed, 26 left his feet to block and 82 tripped, there was no contact." "Wave off my flag, I'll explain at halftime."

It wasn't in the script.   Didn't you know these games are like WWE?  Everything is predetermined.  ;D

Because at the end of the previous play, the Umpire gave the Judges his last Snickers Bars. They were in between bites on the play and had chocolate on their hands. The chocolate caused their fingers to slip off their flags...hence the no call due to a last minute chocolate fix.

OK, OK ... their bookie called with a kidnap threat for their daughters.

OK, OK, unseen in the stands in their direct line of view Victoria Secrets models ripped off their shirts and went topless.

No? I give up.

I don't think it was the correct call. Bad angle, official called what he thought, not what he saw. In saying that, everyone makes mistakes, it is just unfortunate that this mistake was on one of the biggest stages on a day full of blunders.

National Football League / Saints pass interference non-call

Can someone provide an impartial analysis of why this was not pass interference and/or leading with the helmet? I have no dog in this hunt, and don't watch any pro sports. I saw this on a pop-up page, and as a non-official I just can't see why there was not a penalty called on someone on this play.

Scroll down the link to watch the roughing the passer call. Does anyone have an explanation of why this was a correct call by the official?

I was on the Board in Little League. After one long grueling, trying night I offered this observation. "We need to tear down the concession stand, remove all the bleachers, yank out the fences and backstops, then chase every adult from the field. The kids will set up bases, define foul lines and will play the game in absolute bliss. The biggest problems involve 30 plus year old kids that never grew up.

Young receivers coming out wide look at you and ask "Am I OK?"

"I don't know what does your Mom say about you?"

They never reply, maybe because they don't know what Mom thinks.

You better be quick, "Tell me if you are supposed to be on or off."
