We watched the Ravens-Steelers playoff game with a growing sense of disgust as one bizarre call after another was made against the Ravens. A touchdown called back because a Steeler fell down (not pulled down) and some dumb call for holding on a defensive lineman stopping a run. Who knew tackling or blocking was holding!
There were also just as obviously a series of non-calls on the Steelers, where offensive holding and blocks in the back (basically tackles) were magically missed by the keen eyed officials.
Both teams deserved a fair game – but the NFL is apparently not up for football anymore. It has sadly turned the game of football into a Zebra show.
