Sadly that is true. Fans of teams who haven't been screwed by these guys to the extent of costing them a game its all fine and dandy , but its just bad for the game and the longer these guys are on the field chances are they will get your team sooner or later. In the NFL every game is big when you start talking about playoffs etc so saying oh but its early so its not a big deal is horse s**t every game counts and now or later esp with the league having such parity.

Don't even get me started about the wagering aspect of this thing i see that through different eyes. The NFL is by far the most wagered on league in the world and its well just a huge cluster f**k for a lot of people who enjoy the hobby people are literally not betting on these games anymore because of these a**clowns.

It frustrates me so when people make excuses for these guys or try and make believe they are fine cause oh well even regular refs make mistakes and were bad.  I just well  i just can't.

I just want to say I HATE the Packers and I'm a huge Golden Tate fan.  I can fully admit GB got robbed last night.  Highway robbery, though I'm not losing any sleep over it.  And yes, it has happened to my team.  Does the "Bush Push" ring a bell? 
#6 | 737 days ago



This says everything anyone needs to know about how ridiculous it is that these clowns are actually refs for NFL games. Now i don't blame the refs themselves they cant help being s**t but the league is just well pathetic.


This is a statement from the commish of the Lingerie Football League:


Because of the LFL's perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.

We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight's event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games.

Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3 of the NFL Rule Book:
Simultaneous Catch - If a pass is caught simultaneously by two eligible opponents, and both players retain it, the ball belongs to the passers. It is not a simultaneous catch if a player gains control first and an opponent subsequently gains joint control. If the ball is muffed after simultaneous touching by two such players, all the players of the passing team become eligible to catch the loose ball.

As an NFL fan, this is pathetic!   I hope the rest of the NFL fans take a stance and stop going to the games until the real idiots, er, I mean NFL refs come back!

I place the blame on the owners!  As much as I dislike Goodell, he works for the league, which is ran by the owners!

As far as the replacement refs go, they are a joke! No matter how much experience they have, people in bars, that have had too much to drink, could have made better calls than what I witnessed last night!

This just in, a lady in a grocery store touched a baby on it's head and the replacement refs awarded her custody of that child! surprise wink

The only thing they could look at, in replay, was whether the ball was caught.

If they would of gathered and made a decision on whether it was a TD or an INT, because you had 2 refs calling 1 of each, they might have been able to determine what was being reviewed.

Unfortunately, the replay rules cannot change the ruling of a TD vs an INT, only, whether the call on the field was a catch (thus an INT or TD)?

The Lingerie Football League Announces That It Fired “A Couple Crews Which Apparently Are Now Officiating In The NFL” Because Of Incompetence


 

After the Hall of Fame game in August, Mike Pereira let it slip that Craig Ochoa, the referee who worked that game, had beenfired from the Lingerie Football League. The Lingerie Football League—which recently uprooted itself from its US host cities to barnstorm in Canada, the United States, and Australia over the next year—didn't respond to our request for comment on Pereira's charge then.

But now they have, and, boy, oh boy, this is great:

Because of the LFL's perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL.

We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight's event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games.

If there was ever a reason for a public statement from a third-tier football league at 12:28 a.m. on a Tuesday, tonight's debacle was it. And, yup, Roger Goodell, you just got served. By the commissioner of the Lingerie Football League. Eat it.

Even in that case, call it incomplete. The integrity of the game, and in part the entire NFC playoff chase, was on the line with that call.

I hear ya, Mike.  Regardless of the fact that the Packers got screwed and being a Bears fan, well, ya know wink.  Still, it was a travesty and they couldn't of called it incomplete because the ball was caught.

The problem was that the head ref should of gathered with the two line judges to determine what they were going to call (INT or TD)  even though WE ALL KNOW that it was an INT as Jennings had possession of the ball before Tate did.

One thing is for certain, that play will be talked about for a very long time.

Sad!

NFL Releases Statement on Controversial Game-Ending Call in Packers vs Seahawks

The NFL released a statement on Tuesday following the controversial game-ending call made by replacement referees in Monday night's game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks.

Here's the statement from the league (via NFL.com):
While the ball is in the air, Tate can be seen shoving Green Bay cornerback Sam Shields to the ground. This should have been a penalty for offensive pass interference, which would have ended the game. It was not called and is not reviewable in instant replay.

When the players hit the ground in the end zone, the officials determined that both Tate and Jennings had possession of the ball. Under the rule for simultaneous catch, the ball belongs to Tate, the offensive player. The result of the play was a touchdown.

Replay Official Howard Slavin stopped the game for an instant replay review. The aspects of the play that were reviewable included if the ball hit the ground and who had possession of the ball. In the end zone, a ruling of a simultaneous catch is reviewable. That is not the case in the field of play, only in the end zone.

Referee Wayne Elliott determined that no indisputable visual evidence existed to overturn the call on the field, and as a result, the on-field ruling of touchdown stood. The NFL Officiating Department reviewed the video today and supports the decision not to overturn the on-field ruling following the instant replay review.

The result of the game is final.

If you missed any of the drama on Monday night at CenturyLink Field, here's what happened. 
Trailing 12-7 on the final play of the game, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson heaves a pass into the corner of the end zone. Then all hell breaks lose. 

First off, how can anyone in charge of making calls in a football game miss Golden Tate's blatant offensive pass interference before the catch?

After the missed push off, it looks obvious that Packers safety M.D. Jennings secures the ball first and brings it to his body. The official closest to the play looks to be signaling a touchback when all of a sudden, another referee runs up from nowhere near the play to call a definitive touchdown. 

Seahawks win 14-12. Seattle moves to 2-1 and Green Bay falls to 1-2 on the irresponsible call. 

Afterwards, of course, the Packers made their frustration known. Green Bay's players left the field after the call was made, and it was then somehow upheld on replay. They were classy enough to send some players back on the field for the meaningless extra point. 
Once it was over, some Packers went to Twitter to rip the NFL and the replacement refs, while head coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers had few words to describe the game-changing call in their postgame press conferences.

Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings was sarcastic but truthful in his assessment of the replacement referee's decision. 
Most anyone who witnessed the series of events before the end of Monday night's game realized right away that something was wrong, and that for the first time in three weeks the NFL's arrogance and stubbornness to keep the real officials locked out had finally cost a team a game. 

Perhaps the NFL's statement is the first step in helping the league recover from the black eye it gave itself on Monday night in Seattle. But unless the NFL is going to reverse the call and give the Packers the win they earned, then this will stand for a long time as one of the worst injustices in the history of the game.

So to get this thread back on track, here is my take.

We don't know what call the actual refs would have made. Had they made the same call it would have ended the same way. I believe that the biggest differences in the replacements and the real refs is that the real refs would have gotten together and discussed the call before just throwing up their arm. Had the actual refs come up with the decision of simultaneous catch, that is reviewable and the call might have stood no matter which set of refs would have made the call.

I don't get why the refs made the Packers come out for the point after try or why McCarthy sent players out there. I would have refused and told the refs to f**k off. There is no rule that states that Green Bay had to have anyone on the field and I would have not sent anyone out there. All that Seattle had to do was put 7 guys on the line of scrimmage, snap the ball to someone and walk it into the endzone for 2 points.

What i got out of the NFLs  statement was that they were standing behind the decision from last night. From what i understand the replay guys are not replacements. We may be in for a long season of stuff like this and even id a deal gets done this week we have one more week of replacement refs. What happens if GB and Seattle are tied for the last playoff spot at the end of the year, GB gets bent over again because of this decision.





Nick, brah they have to be Barry's boys, you  know, redistrubtion of wins. GB had eight more than Seattle last year so its only fair they get one at GBs expense.laugh

Because the GB organization has class and wanted to have 11 representatitves out there to finish the game.

BTW - I was told that the Monday night crew, that worked last night, will be the same crew for the DAL-CHI game next week.

Somehow, I think that will now change!

Going back to post #27 and what the NFL released, it is a joke that the NFL Officiating Department took a look at that and agreed with the call.  Really?!?!?!  

Then again, what option did they really have?  If they reversed the call, would that make them look like bigger idiots and put more pressure on them reaching a deal with the locked out refs?

In my eyes, the NFL could of saved face by reversing the call and awarding the win to the actual winners.  (shrug)

$9.2 Million Shift in Vegas For Monday Night Football Replacement Referee Disaster; Up to $250 Million Worldwide 


The Packers were favored by a field goal over the Seahawks in Monday Night Football, and in some places, the line inched up to 3.5 or four. Everyone – over 70 percent, according toVegas Insider – was on the Packers. Ryan Greene, a former sports writer, re-tweeted someone at William Hill, an online sports gambling site, saying they “can’t sell a ticket on the Seahawks.” When the action is that one-sided, it’s best to go the other way.

How much money was on the line on the game’s final play? How much money changed hands as Golden Tate wrestled the ball – after committing blatant pass interference that wasn’t called – away from N.D. Jennings? According to Wagerminds, the swing seems to be $9.2 million in Las Vegas – sorry, Joe Public, you lost again. Trying to get a handle on the number worldwide is much more difficult but could range anywhere from $150 million to $250 million.

Yea i have been hearing numbers tossed around all morning not only in Vegas but also Off Shore (Where much more is wagered) and well its just a lot and effects a lot of people. Fandom is one thing money is another.


People who don't wager rightfully don't care and say oh well you shouldn't be betting on the NFL anyway , well one part of what has made the NFL so popular is the sports betting angle like it or not and many in that industry have been done a huge disservice with what happened in that GB game.

Batting the ball down puts it in Tate's hands.

but since I agree, and will even add that if he swats it OVER his head towards the BACK of the end zone - no one has a shot at it.

Besides...the Pack was getting it handed to them.  That was a make-up call for something the Re-Refs  missed during the game - like the whole game!!

Just addressing the last part.. Green Bay had more 1st downs, more yardage, and more penalty yards called against them. Seattle only had one significant offensive play all game.  Green Bay also had a game ending INT wiped out to a non-existent rough the passer call, and Seattle was only that far down the field to start their final drive due to a huge non-existent defensive PI call that should've been offensive PI.  Any karma Seattle was owed had already been paid in full by the time that horribly blown call had occured.

/not necessarily a rant against you, but I've seen too many morons say "Seattle was better anyway" and so on.

Batting the ball down puts it in Tate's hands.

That said, irrelevant question. Refs have to make right calls.

And I didn't PQ you for the record.
I didn't say BAT IT DOWN......I said BAT IT AWAY.......he could of swatted it over his head and out of bounds!

KEV is PQ'ing me until the NEW YEAR, it's cool!

Just to PQ...I never PQ...I was gonna once, then I said "Nahhhhhhh..."

Like I said...I should!  I didn't

Hey Mike...it was the defense Seattle put on them (yeah, it was made up in the 2nd half, but even you had to say "WTF" by halftime...) You gotta admit - by far the BEST D they have faced in two years in a regular season match-up

I still say they made the call up.

That D was impressive. Their seconday is just gigantic though Browner is a bit of a douche. I think Seattle beats San Fran at least once this year (probably at Century Link).  That said, our halftime adjustments were phenomonal.  McCarthy ran circles around Carroll in the second half.

Browner is a douche, and he toes that PI line more often than not. It's the most frustrating thing about him, though he is good at what he does when he remembers to play the ball.

I will say that the second half was chock full of holds by Packers o-line on our defense that weren't called. I'm not saying that would have made the difference in whether or not the Packers won or lost, and I'm sure it had little to no bearing on the last play of the game (had that OPI been called, or had Tate held onto the ball on that first perfect pass, we wouldn't be having this conversation, either way), but it was frustrating nonetheless.

That entire game was just an officiating atrocity on both sides. I'm ticked that what should have been a very exciting game, with all of the things that did go right, legitimately, for Seattle, it's all overshadowed and fans can't even enjoy this win, because of these replacement refs.

P.S. - our offense has to get better, plain and simple. The o-line looked great (besides taking stupid false start penalties), but those receivers have got to start getting open.

I do think you guys need to trust Russy a bit more though. Offense became too predictable and then he got put into tough situations.


Also, while I'm still a bit furious about the result.. there was a whole lot of irony in this situation that was a little bit funny.  We got Scott Walker demanding the NFL give in to a union.  We got Paul Ryan doing the same.  And, finally, Russell Wilson was on the wrong end of two hail marys (-ies?) last year and finally wins back some Hail Mary karma (and given the call, I'd say is probably on the positive end) against the same fans that cheered him on last year. Go figure.

We may have a hard time with Greenbay after what happened to Them!

How awful is this? The officials blow calls at Seattle games all the time. But these are incompetent referees, because they made a call in Seattle's favor!

No self-respecting referee would make a mistake in the Seahawks' favor! Ask Vinny Testaverde.

Yea, they're going in to that game looking for blood, I suspect.
