Holy crap! I thought one only got bias like this from MSNBC about the election.

That is all.

The sad thing is that is only the worse call so far.

I miss the official NFL Refs.

The NFL has got to get the REAL refs back for the integrity of the game!

Season?!?!! How bout worst call(s), ever.

The obvious pass interference before that and the missed INT call.

I think the NFLPA should seriously consider telling the league that they won’t play until the regular referees return.

That was unbelievably bad, and to get it wrong again under review?

I'll always take a Pack loss but that is a little much.

One things for sure, the boss is going to be crabby at the office tomorrow

Worst call ever in any sport I have seen. Not just the very last call. The bogus roughing the passer. And the worst defensive pass interference ever. And a no call on offensive pass interference last play.

Better get the real refs back ASAP. Game has lost all credibility.

The NFL will reach an agreement with the regular officials this week.

The football gods are not amused.

I was thinking what could the players do. Would they consider a work stopage of their own to get the refs backs. This is hideous.

I feel for these temp refs, but I can’t believe they are this bad. They have to be trying to suck to help the striking refs. This isn’t even worth watching. And to screw up the call on review. come on.

Anyone who thinks Jennings didn’t pick that off is smoking model airplane glue.

Gruden looks like he wants to gut punch this old coot standing next to him in the post game show.

I hope there’s a fiery 15,000 car pileup in Seattle in the next 30 minutes.

That’s exactly what the NFLPA should do, either the refs return, or else they won’t play.

Why Bears’ fans think the refs made an excellent call. Matter of fact they should be there for the next Packers’ game too.

I thought joint possession was considered a reception. Perhaps the ref thought they both had it.

I dont think sending those refs to Green would be a very good idea at all unless there was maximum security.

This just irritates the CRAP out of me! For once my HAWKS are looking promising (love Wilson, Lynch, Tate and Washington), and we get these crappy ref calls. They should NOT have won this. Jennings clearly had that ball. I’ll take the win, but I still like a CLEAN, CLEAR CUT win over bad, amateur refs ANYDAY.

“I can’t take much cheer in this.”

I sure took some. I hope the Pack misses the playoffs by that margin. Or, better still, this sends them into a tailspin and it takes years to recover.

I think this game also means the regular refs are going to have to be back. That plus the Pack loss plus the Vikes win yesterday makes for a good weekend.

The amazing part was that they did not reverse it on replay.

I think there's actually a reasonable argument for simultaneous possession (which goes to the offense). In the view from across the field you can see that Tate has his arm between the ball and the Jennings' chest, and the other wrapped around it. By the NFL's definition of possession (a firm grip and control of the ball) one could say they both had possession, which means touchdown Seattle. So can one really say that Jennings was in exclusive possession of the ball? He wasn't in enough control to retain it after the fact (Tate tore it away).

In light of the above, I'd say the real screw-up (and it was definitely a screw-up) was one of the officials calling a touchdown while the other ruled touchback without any discussion. That made it very hard to overturn on replay.

Now, as for that blindingly obvious offensive pass-interference!!!

Both teams definitely got screwed on certain penalties. Overall I'd say that Green Bay got it worse and the BS penalty call front. Both team's touchdown drives were kept alive by terrible calls. *sigh* Where's Ed Hochuli?

Hell, maybe the game should be annulled then given to Seattle on the basis of eight frickin sacks. That was amazing!

I gotta hand it to the replacement refs, they sure keep things interesting in a nauseous sort of way...

“I dont think sending those refs to Green would be a very good idea at all unless there was maximum security.”

Bears fans look at the bright side. At the end of the game, the refs would then be reffing no more, and the Packers would still lose. :)

Sheesh.

I bleed Purple, and always cheer for whatever team is playing the Cheeseheads.

But I want the Vikes to win (or see the Pack lose) legitimately.

They was robbed tonight.

I’m from Seattle, and that was the worst referee performance from begining to end I have ever seen. It went both ways. Obviously the last 2 drives were really bad for GB, and as a Packer fan I’d be outta my mind.

I’m thinking Roger Goodell’s 50 cell phones are going to be rather busy in the next 2-3 days.

If I was representing the refs union, I think I’d wait a day or two to answer his phone call.
I’d answer: Oh Hi Roger. And how are yooooouuuu? Yeah, about that offer thing. We’ve made a few changes.

You must be a youngun.

I was a witness to the Cowboys/Vikings "Hail Mary" playoff game.

The Cowboys had more than Mary on their side for that call.

Wish I'd thrown the whiskey bottle.
