I have just seen one of the biggest jokes of a refereeing decision...final play Seahawks v Green Bay...a touchdown will win...Seahawks throw a hail mary into the endzone from over twenty yards...Green Bay's Jennings clearly intercepts the ball...and heads to the ground...when he gets there a Sewhawk takes it off him...the ruling...one official says no touchdown...he was closest...another who comes in later and sees the Seahawk with the ball rules touchdown...the official review...touchdown...WTF!!!
I saw it too. What a fracas! They will talk about this one for years ....
It's a fucking outrage!!!!!! American's all concentrating on superficial things like violence in the Muslim world and the upcoming election, while something truly important like the NFL refs remains unresolved...
Damm right! Those young Seahawks are a scrappy bunch, tho
I say get rid of refs and umpires. All of them. But I'm an anarchist by nature.
I won't be shedding any tears for the Packers and their fat fans that's for sure...
I haven't seen the play, but if Jennings did not have complete possession of the ball when he went to the ground, then the catch would be ruled a simultaneous catch and the receiver would get possession. In that photo, the ref is clearly indicating a TD.
Anytime the Packers get screwed, I'm all for it!
4 more years!
awful call. nfl is losing credibility by the week. unfortunately, no one has the balls to say anything except steve young and trent dilfer.
anyway, baseball is a gm for old men. no interaction, just scratching and spitting and waiting...for something to finally happen
