I forget which teams were playing Sunday when a hail mary was batted right into the offensive players hands. Teams have a trail to the pile now. A trail as in someone waiting for the ball to be batted to them. I don't know if they practice batting the ball out of the endzone though.

But you couldn't overturn it. Just as ridiculous as not being able to challenge where the runner went out of bounds after a fumble recovery and being given a 15 yard unsporstmanlike conduct penalty in the first game. People are saying that refs are ruining the game, but the new replay system plays a big part too. Either have replay or don't have it.

his call overruled the ref who ruled it a touchback.


I have decided no one can be that inept. Gamblers have gotten to 1-2 of the refs. I think the official who called the TD was the same one who called Shields for PI. One one who reviewed the play could have been a part of it. Either that or he was scared shitless of making the correct call.

The NFL employee upstairs does not decide the final outcome of the play. Only should there be a review or not. The ref on the field goes under the hood and decides to wet his pants or not.

I think all you owners of the Packers should flex your ownership muscles to the league office. You are owners and you should demand that Goodell correct this egregious error.

I think Greg Aiello (NFL spokesperson) may be using the "no appeal process" to confuse people about the commissioner's power to reverse the outcome.

Want change.. this is how you control change. IMO, should have been done prior to the player lockout and new CBA.

Instead of flying 4 hours each way, an hour to get suited up and then stretch, the possibility of injury, the time that Seattle would have to prepare for the one play, I think Mike McCarthy would take the loss.

I'm sure they wouldn't mind doing it at the end of the season and a game out of the top 6 for the conference. It would remind me of the time in the NBA where (I can't specifically remember when or what happened) but they replayed the last 5 mins of a heat game if I'm not mistaken due to shaq getting wrongfully ejected.

I'll continue watching the Packers. But I had real $$$ to spend on jerseys this year. I'm going to take a picture of the $$$ and let the NFL know that I'll be giving it to one lucky waiter or waitress or bartender as a tip instead. It will be at a place that is NOT showing an NFL game.

According to the NFL press release, possession IS reviewable if it is in the end zone, but not if it is in the rest of the field of play.

And according to same, the reason for no reversal was "a lack of indisputable evidence." Let's be honest, how many times have we seen the regular refs weasel out of something using that same phrase.

I think the Packers got hosed (though I'm more bothered by the Walden roughing and the Shields/Rice interference calls than the TD/interception/no-interference call). But I just think people are acting as if the regular refs never make such egregious mistakes. Which is silly. Heck, I can virtually guarantee that the Triplett or Hochuli crews are going to have major screw-ups in any Packer game they do.

And lets not forget that the reason Seattle was in position to make that last play is how many times the Packers rushed just three players on that last possession.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

What we don't get with the regular officials is this debacle as a whole. We might get one or two terrible penalties, OR a blatant missed call like this that screws us, but all three? And the communication issues, and a screwup on the review? I don't like that the media is focusing on the final play, because it doesn't really examine what made the last 3 minutes or so horrifically terrible.

Say what you want about the three man rush, but the fact is IT WORKED.

They were in position because Tate pushed off with both hands square in the back. I was actually laughing at that point to be honest. I have a very cynical attitude about all this.
