Pass interference or good non-call on the Niners 4th down?
Good non call they both had their hands on each other
Definitely at least a hold with a grab of the jersey, but the ball was too long anyway.
Tommy, Rebel, and our newest rescue Harley!
Think it was a good non-call, but could have gone either way IMO.
The call 'roughing' the kicker on Akers was complete bullshit. Just like the non-call when Flacco got nailed while out of bounds, but it was a bang-bang play.
Several good non-calls in this one. Seems like they let them play more...always a good thing.
Exact opposite of the Ohio State vs Miami game, was waiting for the flag to come into the screen but didn't. Glad the Ravens won but you have to call holding no question about it. Miami vs Ohio State no call, Ravens vs 49ers got to call it.
Also looked like Ed Reed was offsides on a play the goal line earlier in the game.
Exactly what I was gonna put in my post a few seconds ago. Glad Jim lost, though.
Great minds think alike.
BTW, say hello to Betty Childs for me.
Couldn't agree more, need to see Jim Harbaugh taken a down a few notches. I thought it was a hold, and the receiver may have had a chance otherwise...not surprised about the no call, but probably should've been flagged. Glad I'm not a Niners fan.
It was a hold, but you are not going to get that judgment call (1) when the offensive player is being just as physical with the defender in order to create separation, (2) the defender ends up on the ground, and (3) the ball may not have been catchable. If the play worked, it would have been Crabtree pushing off to create separation with the Ravens complaining about the offensive non-call. Good non-call in my humble opinion.
Winning winners who win > whining whiners who whine.
I liked that the refs let both teams play tonight.
They let them get away with some shoving after the whistle.
Pretty much a clean game. Sure, there were some questionable non-calls, but I don't feel there were really any questionable calls, other than the Akers running in the kicker call.
"It's what a brother would do for another brother"
Might be able to say uncatchable for PI but it should've been a holding call. And yes Ron, Betty says "Hi".
Could have gone either way but the helmet to helmet hit on a defenseless Crabtree the previous play should have been called
Close call either way. The ball may not have been catchable, but the fistful of jersey makes me lean towards hold and the contact was past 5 yards with the ball in the air. The WR push was to get through the hold for a chance to make a play on the ball.

Cry Havoc; and let slip the dogs of war!
on the other hand... terrible play call
Fight On! Leave No Doubt.
It was a good call because it was consistent.
In the first half, Gulliver was blatantly holding Torey Smith on a long sideline play and there was no ah there either.
The refs were consistent tonight- that's all you can ask for.
Good no-call. Anyway that crew could train up the P12 refs?
A horrible no call was the take-down on the 2 point safety. Dude was rushing and a guy had him around the waist as he was being dragged.
F I G H T O N
The no calls on the safety were amusing but irrelevant. If I were the Ravens, I would have blatantly held/tackled or otherwise taken every rusher out of the play in order to extend the play. The penalty for a hold in the end zone is a safety anyway.
Yeah, there was holding on the safety...but holding in the end zone is a safety so I don't think it mattered.
Edit - would have helped me to refresh my screen before posting to see that someone else had made this point.

Should have used their last timeout.
Good no call, bunch of contact from both players and the ball looked to be thrown a good bit out of bounds. What people should really be asking is WTF was Greg Roman thinking on that last goal to go situation. Not one play out of the pistol when it had worked for you the entire second half....
I saw some pushing on both sides but the DB was clearly holding the jersey of the receiver impeding his ability to run his pattern. I suspect it could have gone either way.
That looked like a play that could have been flagged, but as mentioned by others, there were many more that were not. This, also, has to be one of the "chippiest" Super Bowls that I can remember.
