    Glad I'm not the only one who saw that. Was screaming at the TV on that play.

    in everyone of these close losses, a call by the refs late has helped the other team win.every last one of them. that's why we have 3 losses by a total of 5 points.screw the NFL!

    Even in a game where Dallas has 2 penalties and the opponent has 8 there are still fingers pointed at officiating.

    I'm telling you Hayden was held terribly on the long pass to
    There has to be when the exact same play is called and one team has the flag picked up for them and the other does not. The refs let them play, I have no problem with the hold but the PI on OScan was a joke and ultimately contributed to the loss today- as did the picked up flag.

    When you leave it close, you put yourself in a position to have the zebras decide the game. What was the turnover differential again? Why was it so close?

    The trip calls usually go against us. Oldtimers will remember the infamous Benny Barnes tripping call Cowboys/Steelers SB that gave Steelers momentum

    Ok, I'll play along.....the 9-11 game against the Jets still pisses me off, no way the refs were gonna call anything against the the Jets that night....But Dallas didn't help themselves either.

    It's when they are called not how many.these calls are coming with the game on the line. that hold is what gave the Lions a chance. without that call that game was over.

    Why did we let him go off for 329 yards receiving? Was he just making plays or did we fail to scheme effectively?

    because we paid some guy $50 million to be able to cover someone one on one.

    No there doesn't have to be.

    I think what a lot of people forget while watching TV is that the officials don't have the obvious and clear birds-eye view that fans are given. They get one angle and a lot of times much of what determines what is or is not truly a penalty is obscured from view.

    It happens every week in single games and if you tried to compare across games you'd lose your mind.

    When you win the turnover battle 5-0 and can't even manage to keep time of possession in your favor and ultimately lose the game........safe to say that countless screw ups along the way were far more influential than 2 penalties that were called, one of which you don't agree with.

    I actually thought it was PI on Dez on his one handed catch in the EZ. That should have been interference. No flag.

    If he doesn't make a one handed catch, we are kicking a FG.

    The PI late when their shoes bumped was pretty bad.

    How dare you bring common sense to a Cowboyszone blame everything on the officials thread?

    yea I thought it was too but Dez gets away with some pushoffs so probably evens out.

    The officials in general have too much impact on the outcome of games. Something needs be done about PI. Make it reviewable or something. Of course, this would only encourage the refs to call it more often.

    Exactly. Some people don't get how it's the timing of the calls, their inconsistency, and the lack of calling legitimate ones, e.g. holds or hands to the face against Ware that have not been called that are obvious. Not necessarily the amount. In close games those matter and there's no way to prove "conspiracy". Of course the immediate rebuttal of those who hold the opposite viewpoint is the Pavlovian response of "tin-foil" wearing idiot. I'm sorry, but having the same exact call charged as a PI against you, overturned in the same game that went for you with the refs saying that "both were playing the ball" when the defender wasn't even looking at the ball at all prior to it in the same game, is evidence that something fishy is going on.
