Default New emphasis on defensive holding/PI

...Because apparently there weren't enough phantom PI calls before

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...nsive-holding/

In other words, the NFL is pissed because their golden boy got spanked in the super bowl.

The way the rules favor the offense is absolutely disgusting. I don't know why the league is so adamant about outlawing defense.

355 penalties through 17 preseason games: 53 for defensive holding, 27 for illegal contact, 15 defensive pass interference flags.

During the entire 2013 preseason, there were 18 penalties for illegal contact, 36 for defensive holding, 72 for defensive pass interference

The NFL is officially ruined if this continues into the regular season.

Also, something else I never really got. How come it's an automatic first down if the defense holds, but if the offense holds, they don't lose a down? Doesn't seem fair to me.

I mean they do get pushed 10 yards back...I think people would prefer a 1st and 20 over a 2nd and 10.

It's the Richard sherman/ legion of boom affect.

The nfl is PISSED their good ol boy didn't win SUPERBOWL. They don't want an empowered, intelligent , loquacious black man being the face of the league.


Real type.

Just another example of the man keeping us down. Plain and simple.

We proved we can beat the shit out of the best offense ever, even when rules are already geared for offense. It's just sickening now.

No surprise that they have a new emphasis on defensive penalties after a team that cheats win the Super Bowl.

Thank you Captain Obvious.

It's the pre-season, they're going to over emphasis this rule.

When the season rolls around, and especially when playoffs start.....it'll be business as usual.

The NE crowd started to boo because of it on the game vs Philly. I think the teams combined for 19 defensive penalties.
