The talking heads keep talking about the "blatant hold" on the G-strings 3rd and goal play. Two things:

1. It was a good non-call. There was very little contact between the receiver and the defender when he changed directions at the goal line. It certainly wasn't "blatant."
2. The contact happened within 5 yards of the LOS.

This is just a case of the media having a vested interest in the G-strings winning the game, and making excuses for them.

Mara is the owner of the Giants, and the one who stuck us with the cap penalty of $36 million.

Yup.
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d8 ... been-worse
A couple of hours after the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins officially filed a joint grievance against the NFL for the salary-cap penalties levied against them, Mara, chair of the NFL Management Council, gave his take on the state of two of his team's chief rivals.

"I thought the penalties imposed were proper," Mara told ESPNDallas.com. "What they did was in violation of the spirit of the salary cap. They attempted to take advantage of a one-year loophole, and quite frankly, I think they're lucky they didn't lose draft picks."

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the site: "That's John's opinion. That's not my opinion."

As head of the council that imposed the penalties, Mara has vested interest in how the grievances play out. The NFL docked the Redskins $36 million and the Cowboys $10 million for manipulating contracts during the 2010 uncapped year, and NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported the arbitration case will be heard by Professor Stephen Burbank of the University of Pennsylvania.
Violate the spirit of the nonexistent salary cap :roll:
Hence why I hope they go 0-16.
