Please...And there haven’t been defensive holding by the Bucs that could have been called? Of course there has...but these calls have been game changing. Reminds me of the 2005 divisional game against the Broncos.
There probably have been. But the calls on KC have been correct.

Chiefs planet quotes?

“Game is rigged as ****. There's no denying it. Since when does trash talking count as a foul? **** this game and I hope Tom Brady dies”

When you figure in that he was moving at something like 15 MPH I think it’s pretty tough to argue credibly that Evans couldn’t let alone someone taller. Complaining about that being uncatchable is pretty ridiculous for you and for Romo, I don’t think many football people will question that call
Look at the gif that was just posted, it wasn't even close to catchable

Chiefs TO strategy was a little reminiscent of 4th and 13 in the game we don’t talk about or the Chung fake punt in the playoff game against the Jets. Dumb decisions born of frustration at your explosive offense getting shut down.

Cheffers crews also called the most penalties per game last season so this isn't unexpected tonight
Cheffers hasn't had a single flag, and not one person calling the game is on his normal crew so that seems pretty irrelevant.

I thought you were talking about the long pass. I think (and already said) the one in the end zone was shaky call. But the one in the end zone is also not a very impactful call. But it is clearly holding past 5 yards and thus catchable shouldn’t matter.

Ooooh that makes sense thanks.
It is INSANE to me that CBS isn't addressing the fact that the name is being changed. This is exactly how HBO screwed it up.

But I guess CBS doesn't have as many subscribers and I also assume it will just shift over to Paramount Plus for current subscribers, which is the opposite of what happened with HBO Max, which required a completely new app and very little clarity on who did and didn't have it.

He's got great music.

Although I confess that I learned today that The Weekend is a person, not a band.
It’s The Weeknd -no third “e.” Big props from me for having dated both Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid.

when you have 6 seconds left and no timeouts having the ball at the 1 or the 5 makes a pretty big difference

It’s really weird that the default response for a game when there is a lot of penalties is “the refs should call fewer penalties” instead of “the Chiefs should stop committing penalties.”
The problem is TB is not called for clutching/grabbing they are doing, and the interference call on Mathieu in the end zone was just ridiculous.

Yeah that was a throwaway pass, wasn't even a legit attempt.
When was the last time a ref picked up a pass interference flag because it was later determined the pass was uncatchable? Evans route was cut off when Brady was throwing.

the play they subsequently run scores a TD either way, so I continue to disagree. Clock stopped either way so unless you don’t understand the rules those are both irrelevant

Heh. I had my friends HBO GO for years and tried to go in randomly recently and it wouldn’t load the app. And that’s how I found out.

Feels like they made this show assuming no fans. Altho I don't know.

The risk is now Mahomes starts throwing Flaccos and getting "make-up" and balance it out, calls
Love it, the “make up calls” aren’t penalties but the ones called on KC are.
