    Cowboys’ DE DeMarcus Lawrence Fed Up With NFL Officiating

    The were able to come away with a 30-10 victory over the Sunday afternoon in what was described as a must-win situation in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. Typically, when these two teams square off against one another there are sure to be some kind of fireworks in the ballgame, but the final volley of explosions didn't go off until after the completion of the game during an with DeMarcus Lawrence.

    DeMarcus Lawrence didn't hold back in his post game interview, especially in regard to the NFL officiating. He let his frustrations known that he is fed up and that he's not going to take it anymore. At least not quietly that is.

    Lawrence, the NFL's sack leader, ripped the officiating crew after the Giants game Sunday afternoon for not calling any holding . There was actually one holding called against the Giants, but the point Lawrence was trying to make still rings true.

    DeMarcus Lawrence certainly has a right to be mad and I don't blame him at all for voicing his frustrations about the lack of holding calls against opposing offensive lineman. This actually adds more fuel to the fire that there is indeed an officiating conspiracy against the Cowboys.

    In fact, you may or may not be surprised to learn that there have only been two holding penalties called on Cowboys' opponents in the last 10 games, including the one against the Giants Sunday afternoon. For comparison sake, the Cowboys have been flagged 18 times during that time span.

    It's gotta be a coincidence, right? Maybe, maybe not. But, one thing is for sure… DeMarcus Lawrence has had enough!

    Of course, Lawrence's outburst will surely earn him a fine from the NFL, but it may be worth it if it draws more attention to the poor officiating the Cowboys have been receiving. I don't know about you, but I for one am glad #90 will not “go gentle into that good night“.

    Do you think DeMarcus Lawrence's frustration is justified?

    I don’t know about not calling penalties against our opponents, but the announcers said early in the game that the Cowboys are the 4th-least penalized team so far this year. Doesn’t sound like a conspiracy to me.

    Brian Martin

    I heard that as well and thought it was odd. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but there have been an awful lot of missed penalties that should’ve gone in the Cowboys favor this season.

    i know we had this conversation before. i believe it all stems from JJ and his fight against roger. i’m sure he let it be known that he will not put up with jones and his antics so the only way to get back at him is to have the referees hit him where it hurts.

    who pays the nfl officiating crews?

    Brian Martin

    I remember having that conversation. It could be a possible power struggle between Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell, but I doubt we will ever know that is true or not. I was hoping things would change with the officiating, but it doesn’t look like it. And, I’m not sure who pays the officiating crews. I would guess it’s the NFL, but I’m not sure. That’s something I will have to look into.

    They say you can call holding on every play…..so there’s that. I read the Cowboys are dead last getting calls on our opponents holding in the entire NFL…”DEAD LAST.”…..so there’s that, also.

    Brian Martin

    I know there’s been some missed calls that were obvious watching from TV that I thought the officials should have probably seen, but I don’t know if there is some kind of conspiracy or not. The officiating simply just as to do a better job in my opinion.
