God-is-a-Taco:


How I wish they would rerelease that game. Still the most fun I've had playing football.

The hockey one was pretty good as well.

Those were some of the best games for the Genesis; I need to get a couple controllers and set it up again.

List fails without Don Denkinger.

Poor Seattle fans. Still hurting after all this time.

Hmmm. What is the ratio of good calls to bad calls for the regular refs compared to the replacements, taking into account the complete body of work for each?

I'm not certain the ratio that you are speaking of even matters anymore. I believe that everyone can agree that many of these games have gotten out of control. Bad officiating aside, I really thought the Ravens/Pats game was going to end violently. I'm surprised that neither QB was intentionally targeted to make a point.

Uh, neither of them are touching the bag on that pic...

I'm fairly certain that the squad who awarded Colorado a fifth down never got paid to red another football game. The worst part is that there was a 20 minute stoppage that had to figure it all out.

The WORST CALL in the history of officiated sports. Be sure to watch where the guy circles the ball, and listen to the announcers.

Yep, that one is there. Disaster in my childhood (#3 Vikings-Cowboys) I really wouldn't call that a hail-mary today but whatever. Also by today's standards I don't really see anything wrong. But it's been a chip on my shoulder for 37 years darn it!

Were they made 1,486 times in large numbers of games around the league, every week? No?

Then STFU, subby.

Agreed. I wrote that to suggest that the submitter's implication of "all refs screw up" was disingenuous.

A worse call by Pac10 refs in the following season.

I reccomend the YouTube worst calls in college football wih Iowa vs. Florida in an Outback bowl.
My favorite part of the video is the face masking call on the guy who got face masked.

Yeah, but that was only one call.

In the OU situation, not only did the refs blow the fact that the ball was first touched by Oregon, they also missed that the ball didn't go 10 yards.

Oh yeah, and they also didn't notice that OU recovered the kick.

Oh, and by the way, it was a ranked out-of-conference opponent on PAC soil....so you knew the ref-job was coming the whole way.

Kerry Fraser. I don't even have to go into detail, if you're a hockey fan you know.

To be fair to the Pac refs, they have always farked over the higher ranked team...in conference, out of conference doesn't really matter. Opposite are the SEC refs who always protect the higher ranked team.

There's a massive difference between a controversial call, and one that everyone agrees is wrong except for Roger Goodell.

USA = the World. The more you know.
