Wow, that's ridiculous. I don't know why things like that even aren't reviewable, it's so dumb.

Trueblood was choking, punching, and raping a Bear on the ground, his teammate tries to pull him off and they call a penalty on him at a crucial point in the game?

They should review it, assess the penalty against the Bucs and then fine, eject, and suspend Trueblood.

And I have no horse in this game.

Bucs fans should be ashamed. Gruden should be ashamed for celebrating the win.

Agreed. Bears were up by two scores with 5 mins. left in the fourth though and couldnt keep it together. Never even should have made it into overtime.

That's ridiculous. Teams should never be ashamed of a win. A win is a win.

Tillman was not flagged for pulling a guy off. Once he and another guy rolled off the pile, they started going at it and I believe Tillman threw a punch. Regardless of who started it and calls the refs missed, you just can't lose your cool. Ideally, it should have been offsetting penalties IMO, but Tillman should not be held blameless.

Trueblood is a jerk though.

Tillman threw himself into one of the Buccaneer players in the pile, well after the whistle blew. That's what he was flagged for.

^ I can't argue that. The Bears just didn't finish the game. But that call was just ridiculous. If it was called against TB, like it should have been. They punt from the back of the end zone, and the Bears get the ball at at least the 50. That call definitely changed the momentum of the game. Then again Tillman should not have done what he did, they always call it on the second guy.
