The Ravens

OK, if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything. So, I am not going to talk about the questionable call on the pass that was originally ruled not a touchdown, but then there was indisputable evidence to make it a touchdown (I mean that's why nobody is questioning the call today. It was indisputable, right?) And I am not going to talk about the first down run by Russell where it was obvious that he got enough yardage and then after review there was not indisputable evidence to overturn it. So, I get it. We can argue about the first down play, but not about the touchdown. The touchdown was indisputable. The first down play was not. I got it.

But, let me digress. I say go away with instant replay. I would rather have the referees get it wrong or right on their own, then go to instant replay and have them still get it wrong or right. There is something to be said for human error. And I don't care how "important" the game or individual play is. Leave it up to the referees to screw up. But to add technology into the mix and still get it wrong is inexcusable.

OK, I am stepping off the soapbox now.
