Referees Missed Crucial Call Giving Game to New England

What can be said that hasn't already been said??!

Well I'll tell you, Patriots miracle play-making CB Malcolm Butler could be considered a cheater, just like the head Cheater in coach Bill Belichick and his supermodel QB Tom "Stop Playing with My Balls" Brady!!

Few people noticed it was Butler who committed a major penalty of pass interference during a critical Seattle possession in the fourth quarter. Butler, who coincidentally was covering Seattle WR Ricardo Lockette again, when he fell down and intentionally grabbed the wideout's foot and tripped him, opting to take the penalty instead of a huge gain and possibly a point scoring play for Seattle...but no flag!

Apparently everyone in the University of Phoenix Stadium saw it but the refs. The game announcers saw it, Chris Collingsworth wondered how it was missed and said Pats got away with one and Lockette, who still almost caught the pass got up signaling the foul and demonstrably looking for the flag...but none was coming.

As a lifelong JETS fan I can say this objectively, New England, for a team who cheats and plays dirty most of the time, has never been whistled for a penalty on a crucial play. The tuck rule for which Tom Brady is infamous for, BS! Time and time again there's no call or the wrong call and if you want to know how to get away with murder, play for "Witch-Kraft'" and his Patriots, sorry couldn't resist, hey Viola!

Seriously, the last impossible to understand play of the game, had former LOB now Pats CB Browner, with his hands full of WR Kearse's jersey, a holding call against anyone else!... And any talk of conspiracy that Coach Pete Carroll wanted his QB Russell Wilson to make the game-winning play as opposed to Marshawn "I'm just here so I won't get fined" Money Lynch, didn't see the previous play when Marshawn Lynch ran for four yards instead of five! Ridiculous!

As the loquacious and supremely brilliant former head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, Denny Green once decried, "they are who we thought they were and we let 'em off the hook!"...with a little help from the refs, just sayin'.
