I agree.

I liked the video of them going back old school and showing Detroit throttling Dallas back in '92. Aikman was classy about it and talked about how Eric Kramer was the starting QB, and then the game the following week vs the eventual SB Champion Redskins...Wayne Fontes getting dumped w/the gatorade...


But, I guess they probably were 'biased' somehow talking about that also...

We can argue till the cows come home. The point is there will always be 'bad' calls throughout the game. Every one of our teams have been through them. Good teams find a way to battle through like being up 20-7 midway through the 3rd quarter....the Lions couldn't do it.
but to call it off, offer no explanation and allow a helmet-less player from the sidelines enter the field of play to argue the call????

Yeah, you might want to take another look at that...

Referee Pete Morelli explains overturned pass interference call during Dallas Cowboys-Detroit Lions wild-card game - ESPN Dallas

No play on the ball + multiple instances of contact + catchable pass = pass interference -- all day long. Well, except in Jerry's house...

The worst thing the refs did IMO was to not give an explanation. What can I say? I'm going to stand by it was a questionable call at best. You know as well as I do, there are players and coaches who argue or go over the line all game, but it is not called....unless you have a player/coach who is abusing a ref or touching him, they aren't going to make that call and you know it.

I just don't understand how a penalty... Especially one in that huge of a situation... Can be reversed with no explanation whatsoever.

"multiple instances of contact" they (receiver/defender) were hand jabbing at best. There was no body contact at the end, and alot of air between the defender and the receiver.

So, nothing you said or in that link changes anything except the fact that the refs should've been much smoother about the explanation (LIKE I'VE BEEN SAYING HERE ALL ALONG)

Lastly, we can whine about the call till the cows come home, but again, Detroit lost this and had control but lost it when up 20-7 mid in the 3rd quarter....its very easy to blame this because where it was played, and who it was against!

LOL. Says the Cowboys fan. You do see the irony in that right? This was the "somebody has to get the monkey off their back" game.

I saw a quick view of Christie in the Jones suite during the last game the Cowboys played in Dallas... a week or two ago. Maybe he's tired of cold weather in the northeast, looking for someone to take him in.

The refs ADMITTED they should've communicated/explained the reversal better. That's what pisses me off, not the actual call, becuase IMO it wasn't 100% definitive....call my opinion wrong or whatever, we all have opinions...but watching the replay multiple times on nfl dot com, that's how I feel.

I think it has more to do with the time in the game in which it happened. If this play happened in the first half hardly anyone would be talking about it.

Every replay I have seen shows enough contact in my opinion that it should have been called. I thought that Mike Pereira said it best that the defender was never playing the ball at any point and so it should have been a penalty.

In the end, with the way the game was going I would not have been surprised if Dallas still would have won even if the Lions did get the call there. Lions probably only would have gotten a field goal giving them just a six point lead. Dallas still wins if they can get a TD still.
