If it's any consolation to Lance, everything's square now since the regular refs gift-wrapped a call for the Packers on Sunday too. If that Packers DB grabbed any more of Jeffery's jersey on that last fourth-down play he could've made a quilt.

That Ref should be happy he's only haunted by one bad call. Mark Sanchez will never live down the Butt-Fumble. He is literally going to be seeing that replayed on NFL Films' blooper shows for the rest of his life.

Yes, definitely not as tough as the people who call others pussies anonymously on the Internet. They are the true heroes.

Football fans should be blaming the owners for creating a situation where someone who was completely unqualified was in a position to make that mistake.

BTW -- why didn't the replay official overturn the bad call on the fields?

This is why I don't like 'judged sports' like figure skating, gymnastics and football.

As a Pack fan, thats who I blame. Farking Goodell needs to go, and the position of commissioner needs restructured. The ref farked up, the crew farked it up, they farked the whole game up, and the reviewers farked it up.

Plus FFS, we're over it. You sound oh so tough calling us pussies for us expecting them to get something right. Farking internet tough guys. I'm so ascared of them.

He's not trying to move on.  If he was, he wouldn't be in the news still, and that's what he obviously wants.

The regular refs have been just as horrible, but have largely gotten a pass. Even with the assistance of IRP, bad calls are made or allowed to stand.

NFL officials used to the the best officials in any sport. Now they are back with the rest of the bad

If he had gotten the call right, the Packers would be the #2 seed in the NFC right now and in line for the first-round bye instead of San Fran. So that guy can blow me.
 
2012-12-19 10:20:51 AM
Well, since the Packers clinched the division and are 100% in the playoffs now, I really don't think anyone cares anymore.

If anything it made the players refocus and gave them the reminder they'll have to keep working at it if they want to win another Super Bowl.

As to the actual play, it's over, people should stop caring at this point.

Considering last year, versus 2010, I'd prefer they take the more difficult route through the playoffs--it seems to work better.

That's a fair point, but I'd also say if he made the call the other way, some over-caffeinated Seahawks fan would be making the same threat; that's life in the big city when you are in that moment in the national spotlight, something he clearly wasn't qualified to do in the first place. I'd guess that most refs get threatened by unhinged degenerate gamblers at some point, except Hochuli with his big arms and tiny shirts.

If he'd shut up and fade away, he could go back to his normal (pretty sweet) life.

Its important to remember that the regular refs are just as bad as the potato refs. The only difference is that ESPN isn't spending 20 minutes dissecting every wrong or missed call the regular refs make.

And as a Niners fan, I actually really miss the potato refs. They called games more or less fairly when they were in there; when the regular refs came back, the Niners started getting buttfarked like they forgot to pay prison protection money.

I'm hopeful there's another referee lockout soon. How long was their deal for?

I agree but being it was the Superbowl, our only one ever, it tends to stick around in peoples minds.

Why Would I Read the Article: Its important to remember that the regular refs are just as bad as the potato refs.


I don't know if you're joking (probably are) but people actually believe they were just as good and I simply cannot disagree more. Those first 3 weeks were unwatchable due to how long the games took. I'm usually in a state of euphoria for the first month of football, but they killed my buzz.

Yeah, Harbuagh got 4 timeouts and 3 challenges during the Vikings game early in the year ( ontop of a few flaot out screw ups for where the ball should have been placed at the end of the play).

I can see why you would be reluctant to let that go.

I would think that most people agree that there is a difference between making a mistake in the heat of the moment and lighting yourself and everything you represent on fire intentionally.

Because you were focusing on it, that's why. Hell, just last Monday night, it took Ed Hochuli 17 minutes (!) on the review where the punt had potentially made contact with Ginn before a decision was made. He went in front of the tv on three different occasions to give an explanation that contained at least 50,000 more words than it needed. And, when all was said and done, he STILL got the call wrong (moved the Niners back 10 yards from a hold from the spot were Patriots fell on the ball, not first touched it, which cost them about 15 yards or so).

Can you imagine the field day the media would have had if it were the replacement refs involved in that debacle? They would have gone full Tebow over that. I stand by my statement: the potato refs are every bit as good as the regular refs,
 
2012-12-19 11:20:28 AM
The bad call was missing the PI. Joint possession goes to the offense.

The article got one thing wrong. This ref's call had little to do with the resolution. It was the 10 minutes of chanting 'bullshiat' in the Baltimore home game Sunday night--with another Baltimore home game set for prime time on Thursday--that forced the league's hand. The Packers/Seahawks game was icing on the cake.
 
2012-12-19 11:20:47 AM
I had actually completely forgotten about the replacement refs until I saw this article. So some of us have moved on.

And, of course, the replacement refs gift-wrapped the Packers' only TD in the Seattle game, but nobody seems to talk about that.

Bull farking shiat. I was confused as any as to why it took Hocheles as long as it did, but that was week 14. Nearly every game in the first 3 weeks was delayed and my bias in the beginning was for the replacements because I thought the refs had it way too good. The number of games that have been delayed and conducted in a shiatty matter in the 11 weeks after probably doesn't equal the 3 week total of the potatoes.
