"Maybe those guys gotta study the rulebook and figure it out. We obviously knew what we were doing and we made some pretty important plays. It was a real good weapon for us." Those are the words of Tom Brady after yet another New England playoff win, a 35-31 much-too-close-for-comfort victory over upset-minded Baltimore. The Patriots, according to Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh, used "deception" at the line of scrimmage to confuse the officials into not allowing his team to substitute.

Why Can't We Just Leave Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman Alone?

Collectively, we love to make snap judgments about people based on what they say (see Sherman) or what they don't say (see Lynch). The media have made caricatures out of these two guys the last couple of years based solely on how much they talk or don't talk.

Though a Pats fan dare not criticize beloved Bill, we hate to say that an end zone catch could have proven fatal for New England's prospects for the Super Bowl. Monday Morning quarterbacking is so much easier!

The NFL's Officiating Problem Has Become Laughably Awful

Jordan Schultz | Posted 03.07.2015 | Sports
Jordan Schultz

Unlike every other professional sport in North America, pro football does not provide full-time employment to its officials. As a result, it does not hold referees to the same standard of excellence found in other sports. For example, even if an official has a pattern of making inaccurate calls in game after game, he still won't be demoted. In fact, he can actually be promoted to a postseason opportunity because there is no threat of unemployment. In other words: A player can make one poor play and get cut, but a referee can make the same mistake over and over and be rewarded.
