Try walking 6000 miles in the replacement refs shoes, subby. Then you will know their pain

Then you can make fun of them as much as you want. You'll be 6000 miles away. And you'll have their shoes.

I don't care if you don't like the Packers. If you don't like Clay Matthews after tonight, you're a dick.

I don't even know if I liked him too much BEFORE tonight. But AFTER tonight, oh yeah he's awesome.

I am a Seahawks fan.

That was not a touchdown. The Packers should have won the game.

The end.

These dolts clearly must have been "Community Organizers" before they gained their power and began to ruin the Country...I mean the NFL.

If you're referring to the Facebook thing, that was a fake account.

No matter who ended up winning, this game should have a huge asterisk next to it saying that the entire 2nd half can't be judged due to sub-peewee level officiating.

They reduced their Derp to 3000 miles...still over 1000 miles off.

Although the game winning touchdown seemed like the worst call of the night, NFL officiating on hail-mary plays has always been somewhat shaky.

The pass interference calls had much more of an effect on the game. Teams are learning to throw the ball down the field no matter what because there seems to be about a 20% chance that you will get a call against a defender no matter what.

Same deal with cheap shots. Most of them are missed, but some really silly things draw a flag. Might as well throw a punch.

I wondering, how hard would it have been to get at least Div II refs? There are Div II schools within short distances of every NFL city, so not like the refs couldn't get from their Saturday games to Sunday games easy enough.

Who pays for their travel expenses?

Couldn't that travel money just as easily have been put towards the official officials "demands"?

The problem is that acceding to their demands would give said demands legitimacy, and once you have the help dictating their own working and compensation conditions, then the whole social structure goes belly up. Better to burn the whole league down than have that happen.

The end of that game would have been so much more entertaining if that call had been made in Green Bay.

Of course it could have. And the demands of the refs amount to not even a drop in the bucket for the NFL's profits. But you think the NFL has cared?

The NFL is truly the modern microstructure of failed policies.

Meh.

It's hard for me to believe that they are still making money.

It's been over a generation since that league should have been financially ruined.

But the owners see themselves as John Galt! They had the brilliant idea cold hard cash to buy a NFL team! They are necessary for advancement of the human race, and if the mean old referees that have spent their entire lives learning how to do their job properly want to take too much of their due profits, then the owners are perfectly willing to say fark this and take their ball and go home, so to speak.

I was actually at the Seahawk's game (season ticket holder). That entire game was nothing but stupid and flat blown calls. Obviously the last one took the cake. Being a Seahawk fan I was obviously thrilled as everyone else in the sold out stadium that was a game winning catch. The whole last quarter was pretty awesome. However, I have to admit that was a shiat call and should have at least been an OPI.

They never showed the replay on the stadium screens and I honestly believe the head ref didn't overturn the ruling because he was scared that people would actually riot. I mean the place was crazy and it was the end of the game and everybody was shiatfaced and wanted the win.

The best part was when the refs actually ran into the locker rooms and dragged everyone back out for the extra point 10mins after the game was declared over. Mind you they had already started picking up the field markers and were taking down all the NFL banners and stuff too and had to put it all back.

The NCAA would have a bit of a problem with that. The whole reason these refs are used is because the NAIA doesn't have as much of a problem.

What really irritates me is that this game will be remembered only for that horrible officiating and not the Seattle D whomping the Pack for the whole game. The D was nothing less than spectacular.

They were saying on ESPN this morning that the ref isn't allowed to overturn the call by review in this situation. I'm not sure why they couldn't. I don't see how this is much different than a player bobbling the ball or stepping out of bounds.

Also, by rule, the extra point HAS to be attempted. Stupid rule.
