Torry Holt Accuses Referee of Cheating in Battle of 2-11 Teams

While the NFL story of the day is the touchdown call in the Steelers-Ravens game, there was another referee controversy to come out of Sunday's action. The only reason nobody seems to be outraged by this one is, presumably, because it involved Seattle and St. Louis, a pair of teams who entered play this week with a combined record of 4-22.

Of course, that shouldn't matter, because everyone plays for the same reason -- to win the game. So let's evenly distribute our anger, football fans.

According to St. Louis wide receiver Torry Holt, the referees in Sunday's game used the stadium's video screen to call a questionable pass interference call on Holt, negating a 20-yard completion. Here's what Holt had to say after the game:

"He said he looked up in the Jumbotron and saw that I pushed off," said Holt, who is in his 10th year with the Rams (2-12). "I told him I never extended my arm. It is one thing if you extended, because that is pass interference. But everything was in motion catching the football. I don't even know if I had my hands on the guy. "That was his explanation, and I told him it was a bad call."
