ALL HAIL BLEERGH.

In tribute to Bleergh (the God of Penalties), here’s the week eleven’s best and worst penalties. Here’s a random breakdown of this weeks penalties.  I may or may not try to find the tape for these, nor am I making any judgement call on the individual penalties.  I’m sure that there are plays that should have been called and were not, and other plays where the penalty wasn’t needed, depending on your fandom.  This is mainly me looking a some numbers and publishing my findings, so let me know if there’s something you would like to see added or removed to the list.

Here are the bestest (in the eyes of Bleergh) penalties of the week:

Team Penalty Result
SF OFFENSIVE HOLDING TD nullified
NO OFFENSIVE HOLDING TD nullified
ATL OFFENSIVE HOLDING TD nullified
ARI OFFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE TD nullified
LA ILLEGAL FORMATION TD nullified
NYJ ROUGHING THE KICKER field goal nullified*
*NYJ got a new set of downs
LAC ILLEGAL USE OF HANDS fumble reversed
NE UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS pickerception reversed

 

These plays have multiple flags.  This pleases Bleergh.  This week with a triple penalty on a single play ( you know which play)

*note that the zeros are penalties called from previous weeks but still in the list.  Way too lazy to remove them and it ups my word count. Ha.

Offensive holding with over 21% of the total penalties called this week, up from last week of 20%.

Total number of penalties are up from 219 last week to 226 this week with 4 teams on bye.

 

With all that fluff out of the way, here’s what you came for.

 

the helmet smash

a bit of the fight

 

And this is the play resulting in the other disqualification from earlier in the game

 

Bleergh is still on a high from just the TNF game.  2 ejections during the game (me thinks it should have been more), more suspensions from the “fight” (indefinite, 3 games and a game, all with fines), a play with multiple penalties.

To be honest I’m not sure what sex Bleergh is, if they even have one. So, whatever the female and non-gendered versions of this GIF also apply.

ALL HAIL BLEERGH.

So, the Browns, being the worst/best this week, did the most to appease Bjork or Bleach or whoever the hell that is? Sounds right.

BLEERGH, God of Penalties. He is worshiped by the blowing of whistles and the Throwing of the Yellow. The Zebra Legions march forth to battle in His Name, shouting “FLAGS FOR THE FLAG GOD!”

And yes, The Factory of Sadness has Pleased Him Mightily.

Also, Beerguyrob is an unrepentant heretic who mistells the Origins of Bleergh.

We had a Sunni v. Shi’a division in terms of spelling, but that seems settled now. HAIL BLEERGH!

I believe you’re looking for “Sploosh”
