This was the "pass interference" called on Lions CB Leigh Bodden on Sunday. It cost the Lions 45 yards and arguably the game. The Vikings would utilize this call to get into field goal range and run time off the clock before kicking a game winning field goal with 11 seconds left. The Lions were left with one last play with 4 seconds, but Dan Orlovsky stepped up into a sack as time expired.
Unless grazing a guys thigh is now a penalty, this call was absolutely wrong. I'd like to think that the ref has a pretty good view of the play here. That, or he's lost in Bodden's beautiful brown eyes. What do you think? Pass interference? I don't think so. The Lions have enough trouble winning, the last thing they need is the refs to start teaming up against them too.
