Flags Everywhere!

After reading some message boards and listening to local sports talk radio, I get the feeling that some Ravens fans are a little upset about the plethora of penalties that were called last night.

“They are out to get us” and “The league hates Baltimore” are silly arguments in my opinion.

I really don’t mind the 23 total penalties last night, because if you look at the box score, Baltimore was flagged 12 times to Green Bay’s 11. And if you eliminate Derrick Mason’s Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty early in the fourth quarter (which is Derrick’s fault, not the ref’s), the two teams are even.

I do think the officials were calling it much tighter than what is normally expected. But it since it was tight both ways, it’s just plain wrong to blame any part of last night’s loss on the referees.
