If its the audio I'm thinking of, he said god damnit which really gets people's panties in a bunch.

Anyone want to transcribe that? I couldn't understand a word of it.

I've probably heard "motherfarker" a dozen times during NFL broadcasts and nobody has cared. If this generates butthurt, I'll be greatly amused

If this time last year would have predicted not one, but two Monday morning threads about a Dolphins / Colts game, I would have said you were crazy, but here we are.

Go Dolphins. I like what I see so far!

I just happened to swing by that game on Sunday Ticket right at the very moment he said it. At first I was all, "WTF is wrong with my audio" until I heard the audible groan and apology by the announcer. Farking hilarious, it was. We are such tightasses.

It's almost as if in a highly competitive game w/in a sport that is a multi-billion dollar industry in of itself, emotions can run high among those involved.
 
2012-11-05 12:18:37 PM
HA! Classic. XD

Anyone able to tell what he was saying (other than "God Dammit")?

I can't tell what the other ref was telling him, but I'm pretty sure he just replies "THAT WAS, GOD DAMN IT!" before turning his mic off.

i always like when the announcer(s) act like they didn't hear anything. which is how they're told to handle open mic situations, of course.

although Vin Scully's recent "oh boy, I think he is saying 'bovine waste', and 'flying burrito'" thing was hilarious.

/saw a snakes game this year where the camera showed Kirk Gibson getting red faced as he was chirping at the umpire; "farking bullshiat", "that's a bullshiat call" was clearly "lip readable". pretty sure he got run.

rickythepenguin: saw a snakes game this year where the camera showed Kirk Gibson getting red faced as he was chirping at the umpire;


yesterday's Pack/Cards game there was a completed pass to the GB receiver, who goes down to catch the ball. The Cards player goes to tackle him, then pops up with the ball in his hand. it was ruled INT and then upheld on review (but the reviews didn't show anything, so they had no evidence to overturn the call. all you saw was the pass get caught, players rolling on the ground, then the cards guy with the ball).

anyways, mike mccarthy was shown arguing with the umpire after the call was upheld. every other word was clearly "bullshiat".

I thought he said something like "he was [unintelligible] god damnit". It happened right after a pretty lengthy delay while the refs were trying to figure out a penalty, so I gathered the coach was yelling at the ref that his player was (down, onside, not doing anything illegal).

Packers players seem to have a problem with letting NFC West players pull the football away from 'em.

Oh snap!

forgot about that. bleh. we lost. dammit. the regression i predicted before the Rams loss, jeez. on paper it was a tough schedule but 0-4 (or 5, if you include Rams). and @ ATL? ugh.
 
2012-11-05 12:42:17 PM
I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often, what with all the profanities flying around an NFL field and nothing but a little switch on the ref's belt keeping them from corrupting the minds of our snowflakes.

/Has a snowflake

When i first moved to Dallas from Pittsburgh my weekly work meetings could get as bad as a locker room. F bombs and everything else. No one blinked an eye until I let a godammit fly. Everyone in the room just kind of stopped and gasped except my Boss, who had just moved from Chicago. Later that day I was pulled aside and told that's the worst cuss word there is.

It used to be that the worse profanity was that involving blasphemy. The root of "profanity", "profane", refers to treating the sacrilegious with contempt.

In fact, all the best "pretend" swears used to be super serious -- Gadzooks came from "God's Hooks" and was a profane reference to the nails used to crucify Jesus;

I require more information about this subject, and specifically which pretend swears should be most offensive.

Zounds (Christ's wounds on the Cross)
gadzooks
criminy (Christ's money, refers to the silver that Judas was paid to betray Jesus)
egads (ye gods)

All were quite offensive at one time. Makes you wonder about our most offensive words (homophobic, racist, and misogynist slurs) and if someone 200 years from now will look back and laugh at how silly the (bag of sticks) f-word or the n-word sounds.

I still prefer Ron Jowarski's on-air "shiat, you gotta catch that!" and the dead silence that followed. Plus you could HEAR the 'mute' being used in the truck and the subsequent bumbling apology.

Was awesome.
 
2012-11-05 01:30:13 PM
Oops, I was a little off.

It's "shiat, you gotta get rid of this ball"

FF to 27 seconds in.

Am I the only one amused by people saying what a bunch of pussies TV producers... on a website that filters out the most routine and commonplace of adult profanities like fnck and shiat?

Perhaps Fark readers are a bunch of precious little snowflakes who've never heard or read such goddamn bad language before?

"God, damn it!" is the imperative voice; humans are in no position to compel anything of the sort. This is invoking the name in vain (i.e., without authority or hope of influence). It has nothing to do with beards, rosaries, crosses or naughty words. It simply reflects a poor understanding of our relationship to existence.

My favorite of those is "zounds" which comes from "zwounds" which is derived from "God's wounds"

Considering how long it took them to figure out the penalty, and then one of them wanted a second conference, the guy was probably saying "Godammit, we look like the replacements, not the real refs!"

/unfortunately not the only crew to f**k up badly on Sunday
 
2012-11-05 02:41:08 PM
That particular ref always seemed pretty high strung to me. He officiated the Texans/Saints last year and since we were sitting right behind the Texans' bench, I could clearly hear him ask Gary Kubiak "what do you want to farking do?" in regards to declining a penalty or not.
 
2012-11-05 03:14:16 PM
I think the best highlight yesterday was our rookie quarterback setting a record.

Just saying.

Nadie_AZ: People swear at a football game. News at 11.


THIS! My family has had Redskins season tickets since the 60s, I wasn't allowed to go to a game until I was 10 because RFK was rowdy and I was going to hear language that a younger kid shouldn't be around for 4 hours, and everyone would be hammered. Go to a game now and people are there with their 5 year olds, complaining that people drinking and cussing are "ruining the experience".

Hey asswipes, drinking and cussing IS the experience, has been for a long damn time. Get used to it.
 
2012-11-05 11:59:12 PM
That ref also dropped the F-bomb during the MIA/IND game. The TV delay caught it but I heard it through the Colt's radio broadcast.
