    I didn't see that. Do you have a link to a video that shows it?

    Re: NFL Officiating

    Pete Carroll seems to think that the NFL has ruled that the call in the end zone was correct:

    "We were fortunate the call went our way. But you've got to say the league reviewed it and said they agreed with what was called on the field, they just missed the pass interference."
    I don't think that's exactly what they said. They basically said they didn't want to get into whether the call was correct or not but that they supported the system and that they wouldn't suggest the replay booth overturn that call

    Are you talking about the Seattle receiver, #14? I don't see any interference. The Green Bay players were going for the ball and that makes it perfectly legal.

    It's not as blatant as Golden's, but yes...it is in fact PI by #24.

    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    I'm sure you're in the extreme minority on that one. With all the publicity about this and all the talk it's generated, you're the first I've heard that saw PI on the Packers.

    I see a bunch of guys looking at and jumping for the ball which makes it a legal play whereas Golden Tate's shove off was well before he was going for the ball.

    Re: NFL Officiating

    I think you have to look at how bad the refs were overall. The Packers got some horrible calls go their way on their go ahead touchdown drive. The Seahawks got a horrible call to go their way at the end of the game to win. It's hard when the game is messed up that bad by officiating, but from watching the entire game I feel like the right team won. Seattle outplayed Green Bay and deserved it.

    I know it's a weird way to look at the games since they're decided on the field, but when there are so many bad game changing calls it's hard to figure out.

    I understand your point that there were horrendous calls that went both ways but in the end Seattle only "earned" 7 points. I think with decent officiating Aaron Rodgers and the Pack would have scored more than 7 pts.

    Re: NFL Officiating

    I think it will be pretty funny when the strike is over and we realize that the real refs are pretty crappy too. I'd say the NFL is nearly impossible to officiate well.
    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
