Despite what Jim Harbaugh has to say, there were plenty of no calls for the 49ers too. How about the pass interference play earlier in the game that
prevented Torrey Smith from catching a deep pass that would have went for a touchdown or at the very least, big yardage. Or the late hit out of bounds
against Joe Flacco towards the end of the game? Heck even on that controversial play with the alleged holding, Crabtree was also pushing off so he
could have gotten Offensive Pass Interference. Not to mention that pass was uncatchable anyways. It has been said that the refs who officiated that
game have a reputation for letting the players play and tend to not call as many penalties. The blame for that loss lies squarely on Jim Harbaugh for
not calling a run play even ONCE during that last set of 4 downs.

As for Ray Lewis, he was acquitted! Heck he wasn't even the one charged with the murder, he was just in the vicinity. Why do people still care about
this? Not to mention if you knew anything about Ray Lewis, you'd know that he changed his entire outlook on life after that incident and stopped
running with a bad crowd, thanks to Ozzie Newsome (the man who made the Ravens what they are). To strip any awards, records, stats, or the hall of
fame (because lets face it the man is guaranteed to be accepted as soon as he is eligible) from him for this event would constitute some sort of
guilt. Since he was acquitted, the only way that could occur is through a retrial and that would mean double jeopardy.
I absolutely HATE the Steelers, and that team has Ben Rothlisburger who allegedly raped someone. However he too was acquitted, so I'm not going to
hate on the man and try to have records stripped from him or awards that he may receive while playing football. I may make jokes about the situation
(which in all fairness I'd expect you to do the same about Lewis), but I'm not going to use that as grounds to strip his accomplishments.
