    I wonder if those refs knew they weren't long for the NFL so they took Seattle and the 3.5.

    Re: NFL Officiating

    Just curiously, has anyone ever thrown a game winning interception on the last play of the game before tonight?

    I wonder if Vinny Testaverde will try to make a comeback now that you can win games by throwing interceptions?

    If these replacement refs were officiating WWII, we'd all be speaking German

    If Goodell had any integrity the incompetent call last night would be overturned today and Green Bay would be ruled the winner, 12-7.
    Maybe the NFL should try to find the referees who officiated the 1972 Olympic basketball game between the USA and the USSR and hire them.

    I don't get why they couldn't overturn it, like: on further review, the receiver didn't have possession of the ball. That would have been against the rules, but this is okay?

    Eh, why would the owners cave now? They're at their weakest point, negotiating wise. It'd make much more sense to run the replacement refs out there another week, just to show the union that they're willing to tolerate catastrophic mistakes if it means not paying real refs the money they want.

    The thing is that last play was not the only crappy call in last night's game. In fact it was only the capper on a night of crappy calls. No way Wilson was roughed on his INT a few minutes earlier. No way Okung was holding on a previous play. There were countless calls that were horrible. It became downright unwatchable after awhile

    You're probably right. They will only cave if it starts affecting the bottom line. If people stop watching and/or coming to games because of this, they won't do anything.

    Re: NFL Officiating

    I am not backing the replacement refs but there is this assumption that the real refs will get everything right. Which over the course of the past 25 years I have been watching NFL football is wrong. The regular NFL refs are prone to bad calls on a quarterly basis.

    The problem I have with the current replacement refs aren't the calls, its the way they handle the calls. Its the not knowing of the ins and outs of the rules. Its the 10 second run off in the Bengals game, its the marking off of penalties wrong. In the NE Baltimore game the Ravens made a questionable FG that has been debated. Lets not forget the Browns game a few years back when the real refs made the wrong call when a game winning FG hit the crossbar and hopped over. The main complaint I have is the replacement refs are effecting the flow of the game. If the NFL keeps going down this path they need to get someone upstairs in the ear of the lead ref advising him on calls and the rules. It would haven't taken much for someone in a box to buzz the head ref in the Bengals game to say take 10 seconds off the clock.

    As for the play last night it should have been an INT but I can't say with conviction that the regular refs would have made the call that way.

    Re: NFL Officiating

    I remember joking last year that most games were decided by some very questionable calls and not really on-field performance. I don't see how this year is much different.

    One thing is the games are going really late. The Raiders-Steelers game went past 8pm on Sunday
