    When certain teams, typically the ones who consistently do well, get a few break in the calls, it feels unfair. When a team like that is a rival, and they get breaks on player safety calls, and you don't, it's infuriating.

    Spikerman, the league called the Shazier hit legal, which I find to be perplexing; again the Wheaton call comes to mind. The league also admitted that the Bryant catch was not a TD, and IIRC it was a third down TD, too. The ultimate irony is that the league was advertising that catch on it's FB page for several days. I mean, that's just pretty damn funny. A league who gets shit all the time for not having 'sensible' catch rules promotes a 'catch' that isn't a catch which was confirmed by refs in the booth and an older referee expert on live t.v.

    I didn't see that the league declared the Shazier hit to be legal. If they did, I have no idea why unless leading with the crown is not a foul in the NFL, which I can't believe.

    For fumbled punts that go into the endzone to be safety's instead of touchbacks.

    Well, technically, a fumbled punt into the end zone recovered by the receiving team would be a safety. A muffed punt into the end zone recovered by the receiving team would be a touchback (like tonight).

    By the Shazier hit you're referring to the hit on Gio Bernard that caused a fumble, right? It wasn't called a penalty because it was determined that Bernard was a runner. The penalty would have to be "hit on a defenseless receiver," and since Bernard was a runner he wasn't considered defenseless. If it were a penalty, it'd have to be an incomplete pass; or if it were to stay as a fumble, it can't be called a penalty.

    As far as I know there isn't a penalty in the NFL for leading with the helmet, or hitting a player in the helmet, other than a hit on a "defenseless receiver." Which is why it feels so disingenuous when the NFL claims to care about player safety.

    Shazier delivered a hit on Bernard that was analogous to the same flag thrown on us for the Wheaton hit. Bernard took two steps while Wheaton took three. You can catch the ball and still be a defenseless receiver, as evidenced by the Wheaton ruling.
