The San Jose SaberCats are undefeated. They’re destroying opponents, mostly through the exploits of their defense. But does their success beget more success by convincing referees that they’re not committing penalties when they’re getting away with obvious illegal tactics?
Or do you think there are obvious penalties on every play, so they don’t get special treatment?
Note: There was no holding called on the featured photo. KC Obi (far left) got the sack, so the no-call didn’t matter, but this was hardly the only obvious hold that wasn’t called on Jackson’s blocker.
