To say there is a rage towards those close minded mouthbreathers is an understatement.
oh I see, TBH I forgot all about that fiasco a few years back. If it makes you feel any better Blackberry is seemingly circling the bowl since they refuse to come out with anything remotely competitive with Samsung and Apple. Sorry to hear about the bad experience with a few jerks on the internet, but I assure you we are as friendly as advertised for the most part.

The blame lies with the league for locking out the regulars
The regular refs don't get this much crap. They are just as bad. Remember this Playoff game Titans Vs Ravens they can't even get the play clock right. Phil Luckett screwed up a coin toss



There is no proof that the play last night would have been called differently if the union refs were there. It was not that bad of a call at full speed.

Yeah, upon viewing it several times I kind of get the simultaneous possession. But you have to get the interference on Tate which would negate the catch anyway.

That's what happens though when you don't put your opponent away. Green Bay hasn't been dominant this year, if this were 2010 they would have ran the Seahawks off the field in the first half.

sorry, 5th down is the worst ever.... because it is absolutely 100% objectively wrong.... every other call, no matter how egregious, is still a subjective call by a fallible human being... but 5 is 5 whether the call is made by a professional referee or Clever Hans the Counting Horse....

Sports Science did a great video on this play clearly showing Jennings getting the ball, Tate barely having one hand on the ball and his other hand on Jennings' wrist. It was not in any way simultaneous possession.

And the 2010 Packers wouldn't have put this game away. They were incredibly mediocre the first 6 weeks of that season and struggled the two weeks after it.

7 point win @ Eagles
27 points win vs Bills
3 point loss @ Bears
2 point win vs Lions
3 point OT loss @ Redskins
3 point OT loss vs Dolphins
4 point win vs Vikings
9 point win @ Jets

The refs don't have sports science in the moment at live speed, and they don't have it in the moment on instant replay. I'm not saying it was the right call, just that it's somewhat understandable that they could botch that call.

all scoring plays are reviewable and they still botched it

This. Okay both refs looked and saw Jennings with the ball and Tate trying to grab it away from him. One calls touchback, the other (who missed the OPI and was out in a Seattle club after the game FWIW) called touchdown.

Now they can go to replay, every replay we saw and overturn the call and they didn't and it's disgraceful.

true. but they can't review possession. it was a TD on the field. to say it was not a TD meant it was an INT, which can't happen. they painted themselves into a corner by ruling it a TD. It didn't matter which way they called it, the ruling on the field would have stood.

I can't wait for a "real" ref to screw up and see if there is any backlash

MTSU went to Atlanta and just dismantled Georgia Tech. 49-28 with 69 seconds left. Benny Cunningham is up over 200 yards with 5 touchdowns.

West Virginia and Baylor don't know how to play defense, presently 63-49 Mountaineers with 12:49 left.

Also, I think you could stick Brentwood Academy out there against Arkansas and they could beat them by two or three scores. They are horrendous. Missouri is only up 5 on UCF with 4:34 to play.

UL-Monroe beat the not-so-Mighty Mitsoo by 14, three of the top five fell today, Brandon Belt did this, and Chris Wondolowski is two goals away from tying Roy Lassiter's 16-year-old record for goals in a season with two games left.

For the first time in that series, the U wore the more conservative uniform.

I didn't mind the uniforms, the helmets were just weird though. Either side would have been cool on its own, having half and half like they did was just ugly and stupid.

Concur. Although I would have found it blech if they'd gone with that dark half for the whole helmet. Notre Dame not having gold helmets just seems fundamentally wrong to me.

In other news, South Carolina is actually improving enough that my "most overrated" comments are starting to look very silly indeed. And I'm kicking myself for actually believing in the Mad Hatter.

Oh, and by the way. 6-0, ALL Y'ALL *****ES AND HATERS. O-H!

Nice little fun fact ... the Titans are only the second team in NFL History to allow 30 or more points in the first 5 games of the season

Is there an NFL team with worse coordinators? It took so long to complete the firing of Fisher and the hiring of Munchak that this staff was really the only junk Munchak could salvage from the scrap heap.

And seriously, how does a team coached by Mike Munchak and Bruce Matthews have an offensive line this bad? Maybe it's like Gretzky coaching the Coyotes, greatness on the field doesn't always transfer to coaching I guess.

I don't want to go ballistic this early in the season, but this thing just keeps getting worse each week. The season is basically lost at this point, even a nice run (7-4?) to finish out the season would put them at 8-8 which is not enough for the playoffs in the AFC. I don't even want to think about facing Pittsburgh on a short week.

Ohio State can go undefeated ... they still are bowl ineligible. Enjoy watching THE USC in a bowl game.
