    Ironic when a Cowboys coach complains about referees and non calls
    ;D
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Re: Illegal third challenge should've cost Green Bay Packers

    The coaches have been more vocal this year about bad calls.
    I wonder if any of this is posturing for new negotiations with the officiating union...
    Full time refs in the future?

    Interesting thought.
    One can only hope.

    Leave it to a Green Bay paper to get something wrong:

    Teams are allowed two challenges per half but can get another if they win their previous two. McCarthy won only one of the two challenges.
    No, teams are allowed two challenges per GAME, not per half.

    And I don't find anything in the NFL Digest of Rules that says there is a penalty for tossing the flag when you don't have a challenge left:
    http://www.nfl.com/rulebook/digestofrules

    It's certainly not listed on the page that lists all of the penalties.

    Isn't there a penalty for calling a timeout when you have none? Or maybe it falls under delay of game. Seems there should be a rule against it. If not I think there will be in the coming years as coaches try to take advantage of the rule, or lack of a rule.

    There is in hoops - that's a technical (hello, Chris Webber!)

    Okay - found it - there is a 5-yard penalty for "excessive timeouts" listed:

    And now I found this (in an article Marty posted):
    http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/70246497.html

    [size=12pt]Challenge this[/size]

    The Packers were definitely on the right side of the officiating Sunday.

    Not only did the officials blow a fumble-recovery call that would have given the ball to Dallas after Woodson stripped Romo, they did not issue a penalty when McCarthy threw his red challenge flag for a third time.

    The only time a coach gets three challenges is if he's right on the first two. McCarthy had missed one earlier in the game.

    According to Rule 15, Section 9 of the NFL rules book, throwing the red flag with no timeouts or when all of the available challenges have been used up is a 15-yard penalty. McCarthy wanted to challenge a catch Cowboys receiver Patrick Crayton made in the fourth quarter.

    If the penalty had been assessed, it would have given the Cowboys a first down on the Packers' 14. The drive ended on the 1-yard line when Woodson intercepted Romo.
    However, that penalty is NOT listed in the Digest of Rules.
    Of course.

    I'm searching the web now for a copy of the 2009 NFL rulebook (since the NFL does NOT have that on their website) and have found it, but I need to be registered and approved before I can download it from here:
