a dozen? really? I can think of one.

ex⋅ag⋅ger⋅ate   /ɪgˈzædʒəˌreɪt/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [ig-zaj-uh-reyt] Show IPA Pronunciation
verb, -at⋅ed, -at⋅ing.
–verb (used with object) 1. to magnify beyond the limits of truth; overstate; represent disproportionately: to exaggerate the difficulties of a situation.
2. to increase or enlarge abnormally: Those shoes exaggerate the size of my feet.
–verb (used without object) 3. to employ exaggeration, as in speech or writing: a person who is always exaggerating.


Ok, LOLLL, maybe not a full dozen, but there were a ton. Please dont make me look them all up. A few I can think of off the top of my head was the two minute warning one, the block in the back on harrison's touchdown run, the dual facemasking when it was only called on Arizona, the roughing the passer penalty on Dansby, the numerous challenges Arizona had to do just to get a few of the calls right, the last play of the game....i cant think of anymore at the moment.

What two minute warning one?

The block in the back was questionable at best, full speed it's pretty hard to pick out.

Dansby roughing was a pretty sally call, but I think a lot of the roughing the passer calls are pansy-like.

Challenges are part of the game.

The last play of the game was a fumble. No questioning that.

Roughing the passer is always arguable. If there is any question it is going to get called, and rightfully so IMO. Majority of the time it's pretty obvious that it's not intentianally done. However, if they let those instances slide things could get a lot worse. Yes, it is a contact sport, but I'm all for protecting vulnerable QB's, as being one myself a long time ago with no offensive line to speak of.
NO!......Welp!?

Not to mention when Holmes waited until the ref turned around to do his LeBron powder act after the go-ahead TD catch. 15 yard penalty on that kick-off would've been huge for the Cards.

Plus, there was a big no-call on Harrison for a beat down on some AZ player.

Calls go both ways eventually, but that makes two SBs in a row for the Steelers where the penalty flags were actually Terrible Towels.

You can thank CRY-BABY Troy Aikman for the roughin the passer flags that are happening more these days. He wanted it to be illegal for you to even hit the QB! I'd probably feel the same way if I averaged 1.5 concusions a game too!

Didnt go both ways in this one, unfortunately. Tim Donaughy, anyone?

Actually that was called. They were already on their own 2ft line so it was a 1ft penalty.

I'm sorry the cards lost, but most of the personal fouls I saw looked like they were deserved. I guess I didn't notice whether they were calling more on one side. That holding for the safety was a godsend though.

I'm guessing he was referring to him not getting ejected, and he should've. I'll be surprised if he doesn't get fined by the NFL. Or has he already?

Yeah, the one I'm talking about was behind the play and wasn't called. Madden said he should've been ejected.

Yeah Madden's one to listen too. Madden talked for 5 min about how Warner wears gloves and proceeded by showing a photo of him without gloves in STL and with gloves in Arizona ............ Thanks for the comparison, I truly could not have pictured the glove scenario without it :roll:

I was just using Madden's statement for reference....

Anyway, does anyone read Bill Simmons? IMO, best sports columnist around.

that's called illegal touching, and you're not allowed to do it. And it usually gets called on in and out routes.
