    Re: Warner where art thou????

    If it wasn't face mask it was a blow to the head. If it had been Brady, they would have called it.

    Now i think that is something everyone here will agree on!

    Fact is, this non-call on that Rodgers facemask/headslap is similar to one that Rams fans have been saying should have been called since 2002, and that is the headslap on Warner on the Ty Law interception in the Superbowl

    In both instances, the passer was clearly roughed and it was a clear penalty

    Re: Warner where art thou????

    Here is the best thing I've read on the penalty issue. From NFL.com:

    The official responsible for seeing the helmet-to-helmet hit on Aaron Rodgers on the game's third-to-last play was busy watching and calling the blatant hold on Packers left guard Daryn Colledge. If Colledge hadn't been beaten so badly and holding on for dear life, the official would have seen the roughing the passer foul.


    On the final play, the now-infamous "missed facemask," the official responsible was busy watching the fumble/no-fumble, pass/no-pass scenario that was occurring simultaneously. If the Packers had blocked the blitzing Michael Adams or Rodgers had not held on to the ball so long, the fumble wouldn't have happened.


    Here is an excerpt from the rulebook on the duties of the Head Referee, who was the governing official, in both cases:


    On pass plays, drops back as quarterback begins to fade back, picks up legality of blocks by near linemen. Changes to complete concentration on quarterback as defenders approach. Primarily responsible to rule on possible roughing action on passer and if ball becomes loose, rules whether ball is free on a fumble or dead on an incomplete pass.

    While the referee was watching Colledge's hold, he didn't see the roughing. While he was watching the pass/fumble, he didn't see the facemask.


    Were the non-calls unfortunate for Green Bay? Yes.


    Was it bad officiating? No.

    Interesting take, considering that if the Raiders go to the Superbowl that year, there is no way in hell they or the Steelers beat the Rams. Instead, the Pats win by cheating.

    Oh, BTW, the "Tuck" did not keep the Raiders out of the playoffs. It happened in a Divisional Playoff game. Just so you know.
