    Whilst I know it didn't cost points the Unnecessary Roughness call on Whitner was rediculous

    Has anyone who claims that should have been roughing rather than running into come up with a link to the rule book supporting that judgment? I see multiple posters parroting what the announcers said on the broadcast but still no supporting evidence of the claim. Maybe it's one of those things that if it's said over and over enough times by enough people it just becomes accepted as truth.

    I didn't see it in the rule book, not that I looked, but I do recall that was the rule over the years. Mike P. from Fox was head of officiating for years and he also said that is the rule. For clarity, that's not the only part of the rule, but rather the part that clarifies when a defender rolls or comes into contact with the punters/kickers legs (kicking or planting). If you go and drill him across the body then that is also roughing the kicker.

    I found it. Surprisingly, Mike P was right so I guess it's true what they say about a blind squirrel. Meanwhile, Rule 12, Section 2, Article 10, Item 1:

    Item 1: Roughing the kicker. It is a foul for roughing the kicker if a defensive player:
    (a) contacts the plant leg of the kicker while his kicking leg is still in the air; or
    (b) slides into or contacts the kicker when both of the kicker’s feet are on the ground. It is not a foul if the contact is not severe, or if the kicker returns both feet to the ground prior to the contact and falls over a defender who is on the ground.


    I seem to recall the punter's leg still being in the air and while the defender appeared to try to slide down to avoid the contact, if the kicking leg was still in the air it appears to be a black and white call. Bad call for SF.

    Not the reason they lost the game obviously, but still it could have afforded Kaepernick yet another opportunity to not drive his team down the field and take the lead. If only the Seahawks went back to the failed approach of covering the receivers instead of just guarding against the QB run.

    I will agree with you on that one. but like i said earlier i have seen where SF was on the good end of bad calls in big games. I am not sure what would of happened either way had SF kept the ball.. We will never know. BUT one thing i do know is I'm glad that Ahole Coach won't be in MetLife trying to win a SB in our backyard……


    WHOS GOT IT BETTER THEN US???? Well in this case Jim the Giants , Ravers and now the Seahawks DO!!!!!!! LOL
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    Eh, I have a feeling that the 49er board is still probably swamped with rants and complaints about the refereeing of that game. Nevermind, Kaepernick went suckage mode in the second half. Just put on those noise-cancelling Beats headphones like in the commercial Kaep! lol

    lol

    The 49ers and their fans have nothing to complain about regarding the officiating. It was bad on both sides and cost neither team the game.

    I only blame him for the Interception...he threw that right to the Defender.

    his fumbles came about from strip sacks...I can't put that on him, it happens.
