    SUMMARY: A block by Titans WR Bobby Wade that knocked Patriots S Rodney Harrison out of Sunday's game against Tennessee has been ruled legal. An NFL spokesman says the league's director of officiating reviewed the play and determined that Wade did not commit an illegal crackback block. Wade was ruled to have been blocking upfield and not back toward the ball when he hit Harrison below the waist. Harrison suffered a mid-level sprain of his MCL, which is one of the stabilizing ligaments of the knee, and is likely to be sidelined from 2-4 weeks. The Patriots were infuriated by the block at the time it happened. Harrison said he thought it was a "dirty play" and that Wade was intentionally trying to hurt him. Wade denied that the block was illegal in postgame interviews.

    Well, here in Denmark there's a saying, and I believe you have it in English too:

    "A thief thinks everyone steals"

    I read the Patriots said they saw Fisher wink and smile after the block. Of course it couldn't have been because the Titans had just made a good play. Just because a guy gets hurt doesn't mean it's a dirty play

    It seemed to me that the refs failed to flag numerous personal fouls by the Pats in that game.

    Harrison, of all people, calling someone else dirty... that's actually very funny, but I don't feel like laughing.
