ALL HAIL BLEERGH.

In tribute to Bleergh (the God of Penalties), here’s the week thirteen’s best and worst penalties. Here’s a random breakdown of this weeks penalties.  I may or may not try to find the tape for these, nor am I making any judgement call on the individual penalties.  I’m sure that there are plays that should have been called and were not, and other plays where the penalty wasn’t needed, depending on your fandom.  This is mainly me looking a some numbers and publishing my findings, so let me know if there’s something you would like to see added or removed to the list.

Here are the bestest (in the eyes of Bleergh) penalties of the week:

Team Penalty Result
LA OFFENSIVE HOLDING TD nullified
KC OFFENSIVE HOLDING TD nullified
GB OFFENSIVE HOLDING TD nullified
OAK DEFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE pickerception reversed
NO ILLEGAL BLOCK ABOVE THE WAIST pickerception reversed
BUF ILLEGAL USE OF HANDS pickerception reversed
ARI DEFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE pickerception reversed
LA ROUGHING THE PASSER pickerception reversed
HOU UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT pickerception reversed
HOU DEFENSIVE HOLDING pickerception reversed
WAS UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT Fumbleruski reversed

 

These plays have multiple flags.  This pleases Bleergh.  This new features a double penalty (offsetting) on a scoring play.

How does unsportsmanlike conduct reverse a fumble? I thought UC by definition occurs after a play…

I recall how long the refs huddled after the genius LOLfins fake FG play. They really TRIED to sacrifice it to BLEERGH. ALL HAIL EVERY KNEE MUST BOW

Where can I get my vodka in 50 gallon drums? Or at least Nebuchadnezzars?
