I know people were taking shots at posters complaining about 37 missed holding calls in a game but in all seriousness... why are the officials not calling holding penalties?!? I'm not focusing on one team but league-wide. I went through the live-play stats which have a list of all penalties called in a game and whether they were accepted or declined. After 26 games this season there have only been 26 holding calls against o-linemen - that's an average of 1 holding penalty per game!! There is a lot more holding going on by o-lines than 1 call per game.
I also noticed there have been more holding calls against LBs (on ST likely) and receivers.
What's going on with the lack of holding calls!?!?
I've been noticing this trend all season and I'm sure I'm not alone regarding that. My asking now has nothing to do with my team's loss last night. I'm sure the Bombers o-line have held as much as any other o-line in the league and not been called. Considering the numbers I think it's a legitimate question.
