Hey ... that was kinda fun. Wonder what else I can come up with ...



That YELLOW FLAG is the worst thing about the NFL

The defense knows the offense has to get 11 yards too. What fun would it be if every team has a 100% 3rd-down conversion rate?

2. Your team is on defense and they need a stop to get back in the game and the QB throws a long pass and the referee waits to see if the pass is completed and when it's not he throws a flag giving that team a new set of downs and your defense has to remain on the field



Are these things the main two things about watching a NFL game that causes your blood pressure to rise?
It sucks when your team commits a penalty you don't agree with.

The flag has more to do with the crooked ref than the player doing something wrong.

There definitely has been some questionable calls. Or non-calls.

Not sure how the ref is "crooked" by making a late call.
It seems you didn't question whether the penalty was committed, you're upset that it wasn't called immediately?
Either way, how is your team "hurt" by it? I'd rather have a late call that's correct than a timely bad call.

Usually when a call is late in that situation that means that the ref looked to see if the ball was caught and if it wasn't then he would bail the team out by throwing a flag. And yes if my team is on defense and I think they got a stop on 3rd and 13 and then see a yellow flag, it's very upsetting because it's obvious the ref wanted to keep the other team's drive alive.

1st Most annoying: the stupid questions during the stupid sideline interviews
2nd Most Annoying: the idiot reactions in the end zone after completing a touchdown pass or a run

Don't forget Number 3


3. A defensive player on your team makes a tackle on 2nd down and gets up celebrating. Then on 3rd down your team defense gets burnt for a long pass and gets the 1st down

NFL has become borderline unwatchable as a result of too many commercials. But then again, so too is the case with sports radio.
