Flags in the NFL
After week 4 the NFL is on pace for 3,930 flags thrown during the regular season. In 2009, the entire regular season and postseason had a total of 3,167 flags thrown. It is very noticible when watching a game. It seems that there is a penalty every single play. There is something wrong with the NFL when on a regular basis you can watch a game changing play taken away because some totally unrelated thing that isn’t even on the TV. I understand the reason they are calling more penalties is to protect the players but, football is becoming unwatchable.
