The last play of the game was called exactly the same way the rest of the game was. It would have been complete garbage if the officials threw a flag for something the Niners were trying to get away with all game long against Baltimore's offense.
I linked to the first place that had video and wasn't Bleacher Report.
Fuck me? Right?
Crabtree said it perfectly in that article.
"When somebody grabs you, you always expect a call, but you can't whine to the refs," Crabtree said. "It is what it is."
His coach on the other hand, cried like the little bitch that he is about it all night.
Crabtree is being rich with his whining.
If you play WR, you have to expect to be held in some form or fashion (usually subtle) and you have to fight for the ball.
Like I've said before, the Niners D played THE EXACT SAME WAY but the Ravens' receivers were men and fought for the ball.
Anquon Boldin was amazing.
Stop your b!tching, Niner fans.
This is how you got to the Superbowl.
I mean, if we're calling out people who don't know the rules, it's worth pointing out that holding is never legal for DBs. The 5-yard rule allows for contact, but not grabbing.
Butthurt? Nobody here really gives a damn, we're just discussing it. You're the one who came in here arguing with everyone making this thread 2 pages longer for no reason...
You're a Ravens fan, I get it - but subtle contact is not what happened on that play. You can spin it however you want - the reason it's being called a "non-call" is because it was a penalty. Being a "man" and "fighting" for the ball is not within the rules.
I'm not a Ravens fan.
It's being called a 'non-call' by people who think a game can be called one way for the entire game but another at the end -- i.e., idiots. Niner fans complaining about the last play have a magnificently rich amount of cognitive dissonance because Navorro Bowman did the EXACT SAME THING to Roddy White in the NFC Championship game and was lauded for great defense.
It was physical football for the entire game. Torrey Smith got jobbed on a non-call earlier in the game that would have led to a sure touchdown. Anquan Boldin was beating the jam the entire game. Hell, even Jacoby Jones beat the press coverage.
Don't hate on the Ravens (specifically people like Anquan Boldin) for actually playing football and fighting for the win as opposed to waiting for the officials to bail them out. As tough as the Niners are at every other position, their wide receivers are S-O-F-T.
And you know what, you're right -- there wasn't subtle contact. Crabtree STARTED the contact and even helmet slapped Jimmy Smith. God forbid Jimmy Smith would fight to make sure Crabtree didn't get away with it.
You sound like you've either never played football, soft, butthurt, or a combination of all of the aforementioned.
Good job, completely forgot about that play. I had money on Atlanta so I was hoping for the flag, but in the end I accepted it as the right call. Would love to get Harbaugh's reaction on that play
Yeah that Torrie Smith play had a TD written all over it if he wasn't interfered with...all in all Balitmore definitely played better and deserved to win
