How did that kick at the end of the play NOT get flagged?
And what was that???  What a sissy kick.
It's like "Hey man, I'll do anything not to get hit, including kicking and tripping you."

Congrats to Baltimore for manhandling the Patriots.

In soccer, that can be a red card offense. That is so douchebaggish that it should only be expected from Brady.

Honest question: what's the penalty? I've never seen a raised leg called on a slide.

It was pretty obvious Brady was trying to kick Ed Reed while sliding.

I know I know ... seems like unsportmanlike conduct, but you are right, not technically a penalty.

I would say personal foul, unnecessary roughness. I'm not sure about the rule book, but that's the type of play that gets fined by the league. Not in this case, of course....

I think it's technically a penalty.

The point of a QB slide is the quarterback "gives himself up" by sliding feet-first and the ball is considered "down by contact"
The defender can be penalized if he could reasonably avoid hitting the QB (hasn't "committed himself" prior to the slide).  I don't see why the offensive player shouldn't be penalized for unnecessarily hitting a defensive player after he's "given himself up" and the play is over (ie raising his leg to kick)

I'm fairly sure the Ravens found it motivational though

That was such a supreme b*tch move by the biggest b*tch QB of them all. Penalty or no penalty.

He's a great QB but Brady has always been a kitty.   He could have run for a first on that 4th and 4 when they still had a chance but he was scared of getting hit.

After that ref manhandled him earlier in the game I would be too.

So your the ref- you throw the flag and then what's the call you make?

What other similar plays were fined?

I really hope the media crucifies him for that move, but we all know that Prince Brady doesn't get attacked

Cheap shot plays intended to do nothing but hurt the opposing players. Diving into knees, stepping on hands, you can look up fined cheap shots if you want to. I've already answered what I think the penalty would be called. Obviously you don't agree, easier to just say so, don't you think?

The first half was directed at promo asking his call. Lots of people calling for a flag but I haven't seen any consensus on what, if any, penalty is called. I genuinely don't know the rule book cover to cover here, and haven't seen a penalty ever discussed for a qb on a slide.

The fine question I think is a fair one to know what you are equating it to

Called on both sides of the ball actually.  Probably never see it called on the defense though.

To be fair, he saw an open man in the end zone and threw it in.  If you see that kind of opening, you take the chance every time.  You get a TD with the play instead of a first down.

Has any of the Patriots complained yet about the missed first down because the referee was in  Tom Brady's path.  That had to suck.

Playing against a D that is known for rough play and he puts his leg up, obviously big dirtbag.

Tom Brady is a punk. We need to play him rough next year. At 36 he needs to be pounded.
