Just watched the Fox post game show... All the guys on the panel said they have never seen a PI penalty called and then picked up without any announcement.

Totally ridiculous.

Dallas will generate more revenue for the NFL. The zebras did what they were tasked to do.

If that's the kind of BS they're gonna pull it's time the NFL loses its tax-free status and pays taxes on that revenue.

I like how Dez Bryant was 20 yards onto the field arguing with the refs on the play... Without his helmet...

No flag for that of course.

In keeping with team thread purpose, I locked down the Cowboy team thread as the last 15 posts dealt with this controversial call (and yes, it is QUITE controversial). And of course the Lion thread will be used for those comments.

As soon as I saw Vegas Cabbie start this thread, I was good w/ it, and right away shut down the Cowboy thread for a bit (will re-open it after a while.)

That was a pretty curious call, especially since it was a pretty obvious case of PI by the defender. I am not an NFL conspiracy theorist, but stuff like this is why they exist. I don't think the league is going to change its mind, though. I'd be surprised if they even offer an explanation, really. They don't like to admit mistakes.

I am now hearing about the Dean Blandino incident for the first time. Not sure how this story passed me by. Curious indeed.

I don't believe in conspiracies in the NFL, and palms being greased for ratings or future game setups for revenue.

BUT, that was THE most suspect call to believe in a conspiracy that I have ever seen. The one, I mean ONE critical thing a defender needs to do to attempt to avoid interference is turn his head around and look at the ball. He did not. And that was not incidental contact, as they were hand battling quite a bit.

Goodell and Jones......hmmmm
