    my biggest complaint from the game

    I just want to know who was in charge Monday night. Was it the referees?? Or was it Manning?? I now think there is a bigger whine baby in the NFL than Tommy Kremmer used to be. And let me tell you, it sure seems like Manning had each one of them wrapped around his finger. I use to have respect for this kid. Now I wonder.

    Come on Wraith...

    Cozying up to the Officials is the oldest trick in the book. Face it, if they "like" you or you have been nice to them, questionable (50/50) calls will tend to go your way more often than not.

    The issue is that there was no leadership on the Ram side of the ball to offset Manning's whining. Granted, I did not like the fact that Manning was flapping his jaws all night - but you have to admit -he appeared pretty successful.

    He was able to get them to reverse a fumble call that they can not legally reverse. So I agree that he was succesful.

    Manning was miked on tv so we heard a lot of it. doesnt mean no one on the rams side was talking to the refs in a leadership role.

    I will say however that manning may have influenced the fumble call, which was just awful. It also may have been a giveback for the prior steven jackson fumble reversal.

    Have to agree on this.

    Manning is a whiner.

    A person could easily get the impression that he was a special consultant to the officiating crew.

    Re: my biggest complaint from the game

    What about the chat during one break of Manning telling the the ref to spot the ball quicker so they could use the hurry up which lead to the 12 man on the field penalty.

    That was a cheesy pop warner move. :tongue:

    Come on guys. Would any of it have really mattered? Your reaching. We had to play perfect to win that game. We didn't. Once Bulgar went down, I knew we would lose. No reason to sound like the angry and bitter fan...

    No one said here that it caused us to lose. Point is Manning nose was so far up the refs arse, I didn't know where Manning started and the white hat ended.

    And I really think Manning talked the white out of the fumble.

    Oh I say he did for sure, there is no doubt in my mind that the ref was influenced by Mannings big mouth. What other reason would there be to not go with the call that the Umpire made who was on top of the play, saw it and signalled Rams ball.
    BRUUUUUUUUUUUCE
