Rivera deflects responsibility for penalties
Posted 09 November 2011 - 02:38 PM
The Panthers lead the league in holding penalties, and at least half of those calls have been proven to be bunk. Do you feel this is acceptable?
You say Cam gets calls, can you cite examples where it was as egregious as the calls I mentioned, and in an amount where it created as significant an impact?
I actually made a topic about those calls, I remember one in the Saints game and 1 in the Arizona game. They were both total bunk and gave us a free 15 yards.
Rivera's candidness has been refreshing but this was a mistake to say to the press and I hope he doesn't say anything like that again. Just not professional.

Cam got at least one completely bogus roughing the passer call.....but everyone in the league is getting those.
Not every team is getting phantom holding calls in the closing seconds as they are about to win a game.
This is my point. We get a call every once and a while, but the Bears, Vikings and Saints game had some really bad calls towards the end of the game...
