Myles Garrett was hit with a dubious roughing the passer call Sunday afternoon, for the crime of allowing his momentum to carry him onto Ben Roethlisberger after a hit.

NFL To Produce "Updated" Tutorial Video For Bullcrap New Helmet Rule NFL To Produce "Updated" Tutorial Video For Bullcrap New Helmet Rule

The NFL’s new helmet rule is looking more and more like a big old dud. Nobody understands how to apply it—not coaches, not the players, not even the officials who are tasked with spotting violations in realtime. The line that separates a legal tackle from an illegal one is evidently thin and vague enough that even…

NBA L2M Report: The Refs Made A Big Dumb Mess Of The End Of Game 1 NBA L2M Report: The Refs Made A Big Dumb Mess Of The End Of Game 1

It would be hard to overstate just how badly the Cavs were screwed by the universe at the end of Game 1 Thursday night. A rare reversed judgment call, an unexpected missed free throw, an uncalled lane violation, an apparent uncalled loose-ball foul, and an all-time blunder by one of their own, all inside the final…

Fair And Balanced Referee Knocks Over Defender, Then Goes And Trips Attacker

Apparently they don’t teach referees in Turkey how to avoid standing right in the middle of the action so as not to bowl over a guy with the ball, though it looks like they do teach them how to remedy a situation like that by sneakily taking the legs out from under a player on the other team, so it all evens out:
