Helluva Sunday nighter last night. Gonna be hard to surpass that. Stupid Patriots. Flacco had an awesome game. But then again, that was also in major part to Mr. Smith. Beauty player.

Also, would highly recommend for people to check out the NFL Network production of A Football Life: Ray Lewis. Followed him around for a year. Behind the scenes, game footage, shows what kind of a man he is/has become. Very cool. The entire thing is on YouTube.

Sounds good.

But I still don't think these refs are any worse than the previous bozos.

What is completely awful right now is Green Bay's offense. 8 sacks taken in one half .

Ricky Ray gets the ball away quicker than Aaron Rodgers has tonight. Brutal effort from him thus far. Of course, Green Bay passing every single play makes it easy to blitz. Does anybody in any league like to run the ball anymore?

The biggest difference for me is the "replacement" Refs losing control of the games, the "real" refs blow calls, but they always have the game under control.

Anyone see that "Pass interference" call? That's a game deciding call.

Replacement Refs are laughable, going to review something that's not reviewable.

You would think it has to, the league has been fully embarrassed, again, in primetime.

Suddenly the NBA does not have the least credible refs in sports.

You're in trouble, NFL.

Last night's controversial TD call shifted an estimated $150 million to $250 million in bets http://sprts.bz/MNFbets

And not just the last plays in both games...but the 2 biggest marque games SNF and MNF had calls all through out the game that were massively altering, for all 4 teams.

The talk before MNF was terrible...its going to only get so much worse now after that GB/SEA finish.

That angle on the FG is horrible and there have been blown FG calls by other refs before. The TD on the other hand is a facepalm.


The thing is the NFL isn't exactly asking for much from what I gather. They want more refs, so that when guys have a couple of bad games they can be rotated out. The union doesn't want that.

2. Unionized broadcasters. Of course they're going to support the refferees union and bash the scab refs at every opportunity. I turned off last week's Monday Nighter at half because Mike Tirico's *****ing had become unbearable.

I haven't watched every game, but has there been a single one yet that was decided on a blown call? There almost always has been by this point. Half the games Ed Hochulie has ever reffed have been decided in such a manner. I could care less if the old refs ever come back. The new ones are a little slower at determining the calls, but they get just as many if not more correct.
Wrong again Bob

I thought the exact same thing haha that ref clearly didnt have a good angle to see who caught the ball and he ends up making the decision cause he thought the other ref was going to call a td

whoever would of predicted the 0-3 saints vs the 1-2 packers next weekend

You knew this had to happen eventually. On any given week there are always controversial calls, the more they happen the more it looks bad on replacement refs. The regular refs should hold out for a killer deal now because this is making the league look pretty bush league.

What was even worse was an earlier call when a Seahawk player clearly interfered with a Green Bay defender, and the GB guy got called for pass interference. Unbelievable.


It's going to be real interesting when this is all settled and the regular refs come back. Then, it won't be long before there is a huge controversial call, and the players and coaches are going to have to bite their lips and mutter under their skin to save face. Should be fun.

I certainly wouldn't call that worse due to the circumstances but yes it was egregious and yes the guy who made that call was the same guy who signaled touchdown on the last play.

So seeing as that play happened at the end of the game, why couldn't the NFL overturn this?

That will never happen and would ruin the integrity of the game. It would set a huge precedent. Seahawks won. They are loving the publicity and the casinos probably don't mind ...

That being said, I'm going to the Bills vs Patriots game in Buffalo next week and I hope this is sorted out by then, but that's wishful thinking.

I don't know that you can really ruin the integrity anymore after last night. The only thing that would be worse is the regular officials coming back this week and doing a worse job.
