    Embarrassing.

    You know it’s bad when we even get a tweet dedicated to what happened.

    What is embarrassing was the play of David Johnson and Patrick Peterson. Watching the post-game interviews and Kyler Murray is furious. Players need to get with the program or find another gig. The team has a leader now. Officiating is not the problem. People cashing paychecks and behaving like babies is a problem

    Totally agree. I can tell you that nearly every Cardinals fan I talking too around me at the game today are clearly saying #21 isn’t committed to the Arizona Cardinals, at times loafing & DJ isn’t the same RB.

    You just knew that is what the league would say. Ah we looked at it, but it didn't warrant review. What a joke.

    The defender was playing the ball so I'm not sure you could call it PI

    NFL likes the home teams to win. Straight up.

    Keeps butts in the seats.

    The play took place right in front of Mr. B and Keim:

    Oh I’m sure an apology letter has already been put together with a Hardy Drive address on it

    Do what? I’m sorry but it was more blatant than the one that gave the Bucs the win. He played the ball about as well as I did from my seat at the stadium :lol:

    If attendance is the NFL’s measure of success, they are not doing a good job. Empty seats across the league. Maybe people don’t want politics in their sports and 30 minutes of booth reviews

    Being a Cardinal fan forever this just seems like same old thing. Drives you crazy. Blatant interference.

    It was a twofer. The gave the Bucs one that shouldn't of. (initiated by the league office)
    Then didn't give us one they should of (and didn't even look at it, as determined by also the league office)

    On the Bucs one, the legs got tangled, and the ball was 8 yards deeper and a number of yards towards the sideline. Even if you can call it a potential PI, it has to be catchable.

    The runner wasn't at full speed but slowing down to make a cut as well. No way he gets there in a second.

    It's supposed to be clear and obvious. But how can you call something where it is a stretch to think he could ever reach the ball 'clear and obvious'?

    I can get it if it was a bad judgment call by a ref to throw the flag. But what makes this egregious, is that the league office initiated and did this, afoul of the rule. They can look at where the ball is, the circumstances of everything. They could clearly see it wasn't catchable and definitely not 'clear and obvious'.

    Then screwed us on the other end, not even looking at it.

    If this is how the rule is, then someone is likely getting screwed in the playoffs. I for one will laugh at the idiocy the NFL has done to itself. This is a shot across the bow for the league. This is a far screwier situation than what happened last year. They created a problem out of nothing.

    I'm madder at this idiocy even being possible than anything else really. We're a bad team. We're not making the playoffs. This actually helps us long term potentially by maybe giving us a higher draft pick.

    But no game should end like this ever. It's worse than the playoff game last year. 10x worse. Just with almost no consequences that matter. Except again highlight they have a major hole that could screw over some team when it matters and the outrage will dwarf what happened last year.

    God as my witness, I did not know there was such a thing as a booth review for P.I....

    So on the final play... I was like... Well cool, good thing there is... *CRICKETS*

    Officiating is a fuggin joke in this league.

    Oh well, we didn't deserve to win anyway.
