The Pats beat the Steelers,no question,so this isn't a whining post...I'm over it,but this is kinda weird.

Rodney Harrison was fined(nothing new to him) for ripping off Hines Ward's helmet during the championship game yet no flags were thrown.In fact,the Patriots had one false start for 5 yards as their only penalty all game.

OK,so they played a solid game right?

They haven't had an offensive holding call against them in 5 straight playoff games,against some pretty good pass rushing DE's and OLBs...seems kinda odd to me.

Make that three. :-b
Weird... so who are the refs gonna favor in the Super Bowl? Obviously, these are the exact two teams which the grand NFL/Media conspiracy wanted.
Don't trust anything you see...
Paranoia is just a heightened sense of awareness. :-o






Seriously, I don't remember the specific play, but I would assume the very human refs missed the meat of the action, and then didn't make the subsequent call because they didn't see everything. Happens every game. As far as the Patriots not being penalized, that probably has something to do with discipline and coaching.

I agree 100 percent.I don't remember seeing the fined play either.

They say holding happens every game as well,but it's not always seen/called.

If you guys think the refs aren't biased try watching a raider game. You'd be amazed. I hate refs. :-#

Actually, they say it happens every play, which is what you probably meant to say, GP.
But I think the coaching and discipline thing is right on here.
Who had less penalties than the Patriots this year?
Least Penalized teams:
1)Seattle -79
2)NYJets - 91
3)Denver - 93
4)Baltimore - 94
5)Pittsburgh - 99
6)New England - 101

Teams that I would personally venture to say are "well coached".

Let's look at penalty yardage:
1)Seattle - 669
2)NYJets - 693
3)Indy - 801
4)Cinci - 810
5)New England - 822

Sure New England wasn't at the very top of these catagories, but they were close enough with their talent and experience to make them pretty dominant. Furthermore, these stats might give us a little insight into how and why the Jets and Seahawks managed to make the playoffs despite playing rather sub-par ball for a good portion of the season.
