Looks like a cut and dried penalty from here. Should have been 4th and goal from the 6.

Says Pereira: "They lined up wrong. Not only that, it's a trick play. And if you're going to run a trick-type play, then you have to be lined up properly. You could either have six men on the line, or you could have an ineligible number lined up at the end of the line, which was the case."

    Maybe the Patriots ran out of Referee pay off money.

    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you

    Must have. The no call on the Eagles' pass interference on NE's final offensive play would be further evidence.

    The receiver told the official he was on the line. No illegal formation

    That's been confirmed. *Pats lost. Lets move on.

    I saw a couple of no calls on NE for pass interference.

    Calm down. The NFL isn't a sport, it's entertainment.

    That's questionable these days.

    Not really questionable anymore the reason they are exempt from anti trust laws is because the NFL has been labeled an entertainment industry. Just like WWE.

    It's not questionable. For example I hate opera, but it is still entertainment.

    And why is this being discussed? The game has been long over. Not saying it was or wasn't but there are bad calls in every game.

    Lol
    You mean the play where gronkoski
    flopped in the end zone looking for the penalty like he has done several times in
    the playoffs?

    When all he had to do was reach up and catch the ball !

    No penalty for you.
    Game over

    Eagles Win.

    This is a sports forum. Not much traffic. I'm trying to prime the pump.
