libranoelrose: Is anyone else's quotes getting cut off?

libranoelrose: Is anyone else's quotes getting cut off?


There's a limit to how many characters can be quoted.

seumasokelly: And that's total bs. Yes, o suppose you could magically pretend that the first 59:30 of the game never happened and say that the Seahawks didn't score 6 points there if it's called correctly, but GBs points were a result of poor calls and noncalls too. Neither team earned a win tonight.


What does it say about the sorry state of the league that people are arguing over which bad call(s) affected the outcome of the game the most?
 
2012-09-25 04:06:33 AM  

I sound fat: impaler: seumasokelly: How many times do I need to say that they NEVER SHOULD HAVE HAD THE LEAD. Their lead was just as artificial as the Hawks lead at the end of the game.

The point is the reffing is so bad, you can't make that claim. At all!

The point is nobody has any idea who won that game. Sure the Packer sucked in the first half. So did the seahawks. The seahawks KEPT sucking in the second half, The pack not so much.

Hard to say, really.


I think the foray half was a function of both the Packers scheme and OL sucking as well as the Seahawks playing dominant D. The hawks offense did suck all night, though.

Yo bring up a very good point.

Why didn't that official that called the touchdown throw a flag on Tate?

The announcers mentioned that PI is almost never called in Hail Mary situations, but that's no excuse - it was OPI and it was not a TD. I've never argued otherwise. There were numerous calls, particularly in the 2nd half that shouldnt have been called or the other way around. Not calling OPI was par for the course, calling a TD was terrible.

Besides, one should only quote the last/most relevant part of the post, otherwise it becomes tl;dr.

FYI, if you highlight the part you want and hit the 'quote' button, only the highlighted portion is quoted.

Back in the day, one had to manually ctrl-c/ctrl-v, and then add the person's name, bold it, and italicize the quoted portion. Also onions on belts and uphill to school and back home.

Why not? *fistbump*

Seriously, game was terrible and I fault the refs 100%. Seahawks did not deserve a W for that performance, but neither did GB on my book. Both teams left it up to refs by not playing well enough to win decisively.

Yeah, I'm not on my phone anymore, I just didn't realize how much quoting I was doing.

Anyways I was watching this entire game from my phone so I'm sure I missed a LOT of the bad calls during the game.

I was, remarkably, able to catch all 8 sacks in the first Q though.

I was on my android phone and have tried using the built in browser, Opera, FF, yet it's still too difficult to view huge threads on Fark and make edits without spending 20 minutes trying to get the right text quoted.

Not using my phone right now, but when I do I prefer the Dolphin HD browser. Also depends on the droid, obviously...still have my original Evo4G, and the big screen makes a huge difference (as does orienting the display to its side).

I do have the fingers of a 10 year-old girl, but I keep those in the refrigerator. Hmmm, perhaps I've said too much...

I'll have to give the Dolphin a try. Does it have an adblocker? The only way I can use the first row is to disable ads.

davidphogan: Sabyen91: GreatGlavinsGhost: Olympic Trolling Judge: GreatGlavinsGhost: Thank you. Dear Commissioner cannot resign. Dear Commissioner cannot be fired. Dear Commissioner is Commissioner or life.

Why stop there? When he finally dies and his daughters take over, they may name him Eternal Commissioner and take a lower title.

If this is not settled before next Sunday, I expect to see (and hear) some very funny stuff about Dear Commissioner. Hopefully, during the games.

I won't be hearing anything during the games. This is the final straw.

Also: Are you ready to boycott some football? Steve Young claimed it's the only way to save football


Yup. I watched that clip of Young from week 2 and he was spot on. I'd still like to hear more stories akin to the manure chant, though.

Still think the proper score of the game should be 7-6 Seahawks. Green Bay's TD drive was stopped. Maybe they score later, but who knows.
Both teams got 6 points they didn't deserve.

Refs are a joke regardless. The sheer amount of times they screw down & distance or a penalized player's jersey number is epic potato level.

Hey Green Bay fans. How does it feel to be screwed out of win by the potatoheads? Don't like it?

Srsy. Too bad you have to be the straw that hopefully breaks the NFL's back.
 
2012-09-25 08:28:45 AM  

netweavr: By rule that's a touchdown. This is why you knock away passes instead of catching them on those plays.



These threads are great, they allow you to go through them and see who doesn't know shiat about the game. Like you, moran.

netweavr: That was PI though. And the PI should have been called to end the game. Would have avoided the whole thing.


Better and better. It was OFFENSIVE PI you dolt.
 
2012-09-25 08:48:36 AM  

Sargun: The rule says that, in order for there to be a completed catch/intercepted pass, a player has to have the ball in his hands or arms, touch the grounds, and maintain control to the ground (this is not about having clear control with regards to ties, but about if it would leave the hands/arms making it incomplete). BOTH players fit this criteria. If a pass is caught simultaneously (as in, all three criteria are met at the same time - and they are, as the criteria only come into play as the players hit the ground) then it automatically goes to the offense.

This is the right call. To everyone saying "both hands weren't on the ball until they were on the ground", take a look at the replay. Both players had both hands on the ball before they hit the ground.



Bwahahahahaha!

Don't go to the game, owners get a cut of everything there, stop going.

Watch on TV for a couple weeks, then, no refs, STOP WATCHING!

Wow, that's what f*cking happened!

Sargun: BOTH players fit this criteria.

Oh, my bad, I guess you're blind. That's okay, those of us who are NOT blind have already covered this point, and you're wrong. So, please, get your eyes checked. Don't regurgitate rules we understand when you can't even see what the f*ck happened on the field.

YES FOLKS, I'm back. The resident officiating hater is back. Team is of no relevance, only quality is relevant. I let it fester throughout the season, but I'm getting really tired of it and I'm about to biatchslap some motherfarkers. Sargun should join these failures on the officiating crew, because clearly he's interested in defending the indefensible.

I don't really give a fark who you are or why you think you're important, but if you're going to get personal then you're going on ignore.


I save my ignore lists for people who have no grasp of the game's rules whatsoever and make borderline retarded arguments anyway. Ahem.

That has zero relevance to the bad call on the final, game winning play.

Why not just blame the pilots that flew the Packers to Seattle in the first place? The Packers would have forfeited the game if the pilots had nosed the plane into Mt St. Helens.

Packers never should have had the lead. Their TD drive was stopped, and then extended by a terrible DPI call as well as 3 blatant non-called holds on the GB O-Line.

I say we just replay it from halftime after the real refs are back.

2012-09-25 01:01:44 PM  

Sabyen91:

The Packers were dominated in the first half. The Seahawks were dominated in the second half. Who is talking about heroic performances. The Seahawks deserved to lose that game because the scored fewer points than the Packers (at least in a world not populated by scabs).


Just as a point of reference, the Packer touchdown came off a blown pass interference call, and their field goal came off a blown spot review.

So in a world that is not this one where the refs don't suck, the Seahawks should have never had to throw that Hail Mary, because they were ahead by 9 points at the two minute warning.

Yeah, it was one for the ages. If this doesn't end the lockout, you may as well strap in for Super Bowl POTATO. The sad part is that the teams (or at least the defenses) put on a pretty good show, and it's been overshadowed by the officiating derpfest.
 
2012-09-25 08:12:26 PM  
The butthurt by the entire nation because Seattle won is farking priceless. Remember what you all told Seattle after SBXL? Stop blaming the refs, accept the loss, and move on. So do yourselves a favor. Stop blaming the refs, accept the loss, move on, and GFY.

That phantom PI call allowed GB to score a TD that never should've been scored. The final play never should've happened. Quit your biatching, pussies.
