First off, I’m a Redskins fan, so I couldn’t care less who wins this game. But I do like to watch good football; regardless of what team might be playing. That said, its frustrating to watch games with INCREDIBLY POOR officiating. This game I’m watching right now is easily the sloppiest called game I’ve ever seen.
I dont necessarily blame the replacement officials….I’m sure they’re doing their best. But I do wish the team owners would cave and get the old refs their jobs back. I have no idea what the owners will need to do to get them back…..but whatever it is…’ll be worth it.
And after this nationally televised debacle…...I think the owners are out of options.

I think the Seahawks owner loves the replacement offcials they just gave them the game.

Owners screwing up the integrity of a 10 billion dollar business over 3 million dollars is kind of a metaphor for a lot of other things that can no longer be mentioned here.

There has been at least two major injuries due to bad refs so far this year. These refs are in a no-win situation, and they need to go. And the players are taking advantage of their inability to scan. I’m a Steeler fan, and I am ashamed to say their defense had more holds than I have ever seen, almost every play. The refs caught a few, but most were let go. When the real refs come back, flags will be everywhere for the first couple weeks as the players readjust to the normal refs.

I am not a Packer fan, Vikings are my team, but the Packers really got the shaft in that game. It was obvious from every angle it was shown on TV that it was an interception by GB, and not a catch by the Sea hawk that pushed a defender out of the way for which he should have been penalized.

One of the commentators on ESPN said that this was the first time the refs decided who won a game … it should not be that way!

The helmet to helmet hit in the Raider game on Darrius Heyward-Bey was not called a penalty either and he spent the night in the hospital!

I fear for the safety of the players and the integretity of the game!

the worst screw job in the history of the NFL.

Not quite, the worst screw job in the history of the NFL was in 2005 when the Seahawks had the Super Bowl given to Pittsburgh. Last night’s game doesn’t make up for that give away. However, too bad the pseudo-refs can’t get it right ;-( What the NFL owners are trying to do to the refs is consistent with their mind set; dominion over the “little people” of America.

The NFL promotes itself as being a world class product but clearly the game is loosing credibility.
The longer this farce of a situation continues the more the reputation of the game will be tarnished.

If the ticket buying fans put their opinions on labour-relations on the back burner for a few weeks
and boycotted the games, wouldn’t this force the NFL and the pro Ref’s to reach an agreement?

The latest word from the NFL stated that the call was correct as there was not enough evidence to overturn the call on the field.

My question is which call as one official called it as a touchdown and another called it an interception! Does one official overrule the other? What about the push off penalty that was missed?

There is, for the most part, parity in the NFL and all of the ingredients required to win the championship creates a very small window of opportunity these kind of mistakes closes the window prematurely. I assume that each owner has the desire to win but when games are given away they should very concerned.
