Of Course it is the off-season and we don't have much to discuss right now. So beat awayTongue Tongue Tongue


The "angry mob" is simply responding to a poor opinion piece about what happened on the play. Despite our anger over the terrible officiating in general and the multiple errors on that specific play, I think most of us choose to focus on the future rather than the past. But if someone wants to make asinine assertions with little or not basis in reality, it is neither unexpected nor the least bit wrong to beat their opinion down (verbally).

What I wish would happen is that those that benefitted from the play, or those who support their side of it, would admit that they got away with it. I have done so with the Majkowski pass that beat the Bears in '89.

It was a series of bad calls. But unlike the Seahawks, it didn't happen to us in the Superbowl.

All true. More importantly, I sincerely believe the Packers would not have gotten past SF in last year's playoffs, even if the game had been in GB, and thus it would not have made any difference, in the end. And I suppose if it finally got the NFL embarrassed enough to sh*tcan the replacement officials, some good came out of it.

Oh yeah--well you didn't credit Benson's running for 50 yards in the 3rd quarter (4.9 yards per carry) as contributing to the offense in the second half. So there...

This is ridiculous. Once again you are attributing something to me that I didn't say. I'm sure that everyone else who has read this far in the thread will applaud when I say I'm done on this topic. Bang Head

I never had a problem with the call. Things happen quickly in the game and anyone can make a mistake. They have this thing called instant replay(d'oh! ) to correct those wrong calls and they can because they have to opportunity to slow things down and review plays over and over. They are 100% at fault.
