NFL Admits To Missing 7 Penalty Calls Against The Detroit Lions

While President Obama, every “new” Detroit Lions fan, and Cowboys hater is crying over spilled milk…I am in the process of working on my “Why You Love To Hate The Dallas Cowboys” blog post but I had to make sure I let my readers know that a report has come out that says the Cowboys submitted 10 questionable officiating decisions to the league and the NFL has admitted the officials failed to flag the Lions SEVEN TIMES! SEVEN TIMES!

Texas based Fort Worth Telegram reporter, Clarence Williams Jr., only provided two specific examples. The first, a missed hands to the face call that knocked OL Jeremy Parnell’s helmet off and, a far more relevant one had the game not ended in Dallas’ favor….a missed defensive holding committed by Lions safety James Ihedgho (did I spell that right?) on Dallas TE Jason Witten on 3rd & 8 with 6:44 remaining in the 4th quarter. This play took place right before the 4th & 6 play where the NFL told the Lions they missed a offensive hold against a Cowboys OL on Detroit’s tackle Ndamukong Suh.
