Throw the flag, zebra!

So, I have to ask, why is it the six or seven times the Arizona Cardinal’s defenders jumped offside pre-snap it wasn’t flagged? Naturally, this is going to sound like sour grapes, but seriously, is it not important for the integrity of the NFL that home field type officiating is stamped out? The zebras simply completely ignored the offside rule on about at least seven occasions where the Cards defenders had at least an entire step before the snap. That’s offside! Throw the damn flag! The NBC commentators alluded to it, the Falcons sideline were screaming at the officials, we could all see it on television and yet they wouldn’t throw the stupid flag!

With 11:01 left in the game the arrogant zebras actually did throw a flag, on a false start by the Cards, and while doing so the head ‘blue’ actually laughed, in a smug, ‘yeah, I’ll throw one, why not’ kind of manner.
