Not saying that the Texans aren't a big market team, but we know that if the Pats and Jets make enough noise that'll get more attention. That in and of itself is a problem, but that's the way it is.
Your theory may get tested this week. Belichick was so pissed after tonight's game he ran a official down and grabbed him by the arm. The Pats lost by one. Was it officiating? Bet belichick thinks so....
I bet the only thing that happens is belichick gets fined. As long as stadiums are filled and TV ratings stay high Goodell won't budge on this.

Again, both the player and the ball have to be completely beyond the LoS for a penalty to be called.
