While I disagree with his opinion, I can certainly see why the ruling was made the way it was. If you polled all the teams of refs in the league I bet its probably a 70-30 split incomplete vs TD.


In before someone says you can say the above about every catch.

PS your avatar is hynotizing


good summation Dan.

I didn't think he had possession so no td. The guys in the booth who have logged a little time in the game didn't think he had possession. The "hired Ref" didn't think so but he gets as many wrong as he gets correct.

it is just another time when someone looks at the facts and comes up with the wrong answer.

I don't respect this to be received well, but I find this to be inaccurate and borderline embarrassing.

I didn't think Moss had controlled possession, and I thought the hit on Lacy was an obvious penalty, but I also realize that the game is played very fast and the officials are subject to human error. I think the NFL refs do an incredible job each week. It is perfectly reasonable to have an issue with a few calls per game, but I find it utterly ridiculous to suggest we are any more of a victim then most (or all) other teams.

As you say I just can't see some hidden agenda at work. Highly dubious.

StoicFire, I was just wondering, is this line at the bottom of your posts a true quote from Aaron Rodgers?

It is not an original quote, but it is a scripted quote he delivered. It was from a hilarious episode of Kenny Mayne’s “Mayne Event” feature back in 2008. It was a favorite of mine on youtube, but the video seems to have since been removed.

I found a terrible quality copy of it on my computer and uploaded it to youtube, so now everyone can enjoy:

Shoot Out!!!

Now there is proof that I didn't make it up. Google be damned.
