    Again, im all for the big hit. I disagree with a lot of these rules because they favor the offense, but those are the rules and Pollard knows them.

    I want him to lay the smack down on guys out there, but I also want him to play intelligently.

    I'll have to check the replay again, I'm probably mistaken.

    I want the big hit made every time as long as it's legal. Hits like that make receivers get alligator arms later.

    There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable…

    There is another theory which states that this - has - already - happened…

    What if, upon further review at the league offices, the review board (or dude, or whatever the post game penalty review process is) they decide that the penalty was thrown erroneously? I think a way to fix the NFL would be to penalize the head ref for the game like they would have penalized the player. I know the ref's aren't 'working for the money' but fine one 10k for screwing up a game and I bet the ticky tacky calls stop pretty quick.

    Clean or not, when you launch yourself at a player, the officials are going to call it 9 times out of 10.

    Re: When did Pollard have his head surgically removed and the rettached?

    From what I've heard and read there has been a shift in officials powers.

    My understanding is that they are now to call it If They Think They Saw It

    The issue is no longer did you see it? or even to a degree did you think you saw it.

    The Pollard call looks to be "did you think it could have been helmet"

    The mind set has changed from:
    What you saw
    To what you think you saw
    To what you might have seen.

    Sadly, like Dan Deerdork calls what people are talking to each other about on the field (existing only in his mind), Officials are starting to call plays that exist in their mind.
    It is called bias, and they have now been trained to be biased to call it, expected to call it, and are now covering their butts and calling it if it was a possibility.

    Bring out the pink tu-tus, in addition to Brady, we need more for a couple of officials.
    To understand paranoid people better, follow them around.
