My first question would be why was the R aligned away from the kicker's kicking foot? It would appear that there was an obvious block in the back that someone missed, and it probably should have been the LJ.

One thing to remember when watching game film like this is the "birds eye" view you have. When you're on the field you may have 1 or 2 players that block your view of a foul. In this video there is an R player on the 41 or 42, who could have blocked the view of the Line Judge
Sure we are going to miss some fouls. The intent is to possibly be aware of a block like this and to hopefully be in better position to see it.

It is easy for myself to say, how could an official miss that one? In the Dec. '09 Referee magazine, there is alittle article "5 minutes with Ed Hochuli.(page 29). Question: Why do you believe observers should not judge fouls from the stands?" Ed Hochuli's answer: Chances are I didn't even see it from the stands much less could I make a decision whethere it was correct call. Far too manytimes I called something on the field and when I see it on tape it's not as bigas I thought it was or something that I passed on is bigger than I thought it was. If that's the way it is from 10 yards away, think how it is from 100 yards away." I can see myself blowing easy call, and then others saying, how on earth did Brian miss that one?"
