    Exactly. We were educated 2 weeks ago that on 4th down at the end of the game, the refs don't want to decide the game so they are very reluctant to throw a flag. They were consistent so I give the NFL props on that.

Yes - I am a Falcons fan but it seems the 49ers fans are the ones that want it both ways when it benefits them. Anyway, Kapernick has not seen his last Superbowl. Hopefully they trade him to a team that I like
    LOL - I can see how a Falcons fan would feel this way. And maybe 49ers fans have no reason to cry, with your logic in mind. But as a football fan with no horse in this race, I was annoyed.

    After letting the secondaries play physical defense the entire game, the refs called PI on a 3rd and long on the Ravens previous drive. The officials had been letting worse go all game long, but they called it late in the 4th quarter. But they didn't call it against the Ravens with the game on the line.

    So maybe 49ers fans have no right to be upset with this, but football fans do. I can see that you feel differently. We will have to agree to disagree.

    Super Bowl thread...

    The NCAA needs to get the NFL folks to do the championship hats from now on. These last ones....barf. These tonight are tight.

    That would be like being annoyed if the Patriots had lost their superbowl with the Rams due to the tuck rule.

    You might not agree with the way NFL call the games, but they were consistent. When the game is on the line on 4th down, the contact has to be severe. This isn't anything revolutionary. Roddy White mentioned two weeks ago that NFL refs throw the flag in situations like that, so the NFL players are aware.

    Thank you. I'm glad I'm not the only one around here who can't see Ozzie taking the AD job.

    As a 49ers fan, I was livid at the time, but being a student of the game, I know that no one game is ever won or lost on one play. There are at least 70-80 other plays to get it done. We should've never been in that position in the first place. The magnitude of the game overwhelmed us in the first half. Lots of loafing in our secondary in the first half that allowed Flacco throw aways to turn into big gains. That wish & prayer that Flacco had to Smith vs. Denver? He had at least 3 of those in the first half, one of which resulted in a TD. Just terrible. We put ourselves in that position. So I don't blame the refs. It would've taken a Swann-esque effort for Crab to 1. catch the ball, and 2. come down with it inbounds. It was a poor play selection based on the circumstances, and the ref swallows the whistle 70% of the time in that instant. We'll live. It hurts, but we'll live. I don't, for a second, think Baltimore is a better team than us. But they have the Lombardi Trophy & we don't. That's all that matters.

    Sorry, but the rules do not change with 1 minute left in the game. Consistently bad is still bad.

    Very true, and a great way to look at it. You have figured out how to both win and lose gracefully.

    The duties of an NFL GM and a college AD aren't the same, so I don't know how good he'd do here. There'd also be the issue of him being a football guy, which is a complaint people have about Mal.

    Though I woud not oppose his hiring.

    How many yards from the line of scrimmage did that contact occur? I don't recall, but I do recall wondering why a flag wasn't thrown on that play.
