Your analysis on this catch on the last play.
GB was robbed big time!!! Intercepted in end zone. (watched game at sports2pc here)
Worst call ever
Worst call ever
Terrible call in a game filled with terrible calls. Many of the bad calls helped Green Bay go ahead
The NFL is turning into the WWE. That was a royal screw job.
Seattle stole this one....because of the idiot officiating.
I am FURIOUS!
Perfect example of a union destroying it’s own industry.
Actually it should be plural “calls”, the missed offensive pass interference was the first one.
Been watching sports for 35 years. Worst call ever. Not just last play. But the defensive pass interfence was the 2nd worst call ever.
Merry F’ing Christmas, Seattle.
Worst calls ever.
Both refs calling in the end zone - one TD, one no TD. No interference call. They didn’t know what they were doing.
The Pack should NOT have retaken the field for the extra point because it wasn’t really a TD..
If Green Bay had played to their true ability even the stupid calls would not have helped Seattle.
Green Bay gave the game away. I sure hope they get their act together.
Horrible ruling. It was even worse to confirm it!
From that thread (thanks, massmike!):
Pay the real refs. I can’t watch the NFL anymore. They are killing this game.
Every game in the NFL has always been “fixed” by the league office. This year it is just more blatant!
Not to diminish this bad call but like you said, there were many bad calls and they went both ways. In all these stories it’s about a single call and usually the last one of the game. That is then defined as the “deciding factor”? Not true. They are all deciding factors in close hard fought games and must all be weighed when judging the outcome.
I can’t believe these guys can be this bad without effort. I think they are stinking up the stadiums to help the striking refs, and to make sure they are not blackballed from moving up. Missing the play the first time can be understood, but to uphold it after review is ridiculous.
GB clearly robbed! No question. But watching GB leave the field in a pout, reduced them, in my estimation to a bunch of winey bitches. They blew their opportunity to show class, dignity and character. I’m still a huge fan of GB, but it will be awhile before they earn my respect back. The officials are swimming in very deep water. But they are out of their league, paid much less, love the game, but don’t have the depth of experience. The true culprits are unions v. owners. Greed v. Greed
Obviously many do not know the NFL rules. When a ball is in possession of both offense and defense players, the offense gets the call. So it was the correct call.
All pass interference calls are subjective and the referee rules, not the fans.
Was rooting for Seattle. I like that Wilson kid. Wish my team (Bills) would have drafted him. With that said, that was and INT folks - by the nfl rule.
What’s more: Was at the Bills-Browns game this weekend. Both Browns and Bills fans I was sitting near were all in agreement about the bad officiating, and the delays from officials not being able to move the game along, and way too many flags.
Then we I got home, I saw the Patriots-Ravens. Of course I’m rooting against the Pats. But there were just as awful officiating there as well.
Goodell: Clocks ticking. Wanna have a pissing match with the officials, do it off season. Meanwhile, American football is losing it’s credibility. You wanna keep supporting these refs? The NFL now stands for ‘Not For Long’.
Wrong. Only when initial possession is simultaneous. Defense clearly had possession first. This means that the offense attempting a grab once on the ground is of no consequence. Clearly an interception.
It wasnt just that play..it was the pass int’ in the prior downs that was clearly offensive pass int’!
THE GD Refs threw the game for Seattle.
If GB loses a playoff spot because of this game, the NFL owes them the revenue for it.
I would sue the holy hell out of the NFL because of it.
I agree and pass interference is NEVER called on a jump ball Hail Mary in the end zone!
Not a legitimate game.
Russell Wilson looks just like C. Thomas Howell’s character in Soul Man. (1980s movie reference)
Obama is the substitute NFL ref of Presidents.
I agree - the pass interference that kept the drive alive was even worse, and it was made by same official, who looks about 90 years old, who signaled touch down on the last play. The whole crew was bad ,but he was singularly awful.
Replay did not confirm possession itself. By rule it cannot. It merely confirms the ball was caught in bounds and not hit the ground.
There is no way they should have been able to allow that call to stand. It is my understanding that ALL touchdown’s in the NFL were subject to review. No call should have been made until all discussions with the two officials were finalized and then a video review of the play. I will check the “betting line” tomorrow to see how that outcome affected a bet made on both Green Bay and Seattle.
you are deluded. The ball was clearly possessed by the defense long enough to end the game. Golden Tate only had an arm in there.
Exactly. That's also what the former NFL official (for 27 years) told the ESPN announcers.
If the NFL doesn’t overturn that call our family is done with the them. They should also fine the referees. For the Seattle players to celebrate their fake win shows just how childish , immature and feminine some players are. If the Seattle team were men they would have forfeited the win to the rightfully victorious green bay squad. I guess the real men are not on that team. Shame on the Seahawks.
You are 100% absolutely correct.
These refs threw that game for Seattle.
INT Green Bay. And offensive pass interference on the Seahawks. All on the same play, all missed by the officials.
Un - bleeping believable!
You’re SO incredibly wrong. That was blatant pass interference and Tate didn’t even come close to having possession. It’s not a tie when the receiver doesn’t get the ball first. Tate NEVER had the ball. Take off the blinders.
Disagree. They had a terrible first half, and only were down 4. The Defense played incredible ball.
The offense came back in the second half, and Seattle didn’t have a first down until that last drive. Without that horrible defensive interference call, and then that final call, this game was in hand.
Seattle is a darn good team, at least on Defense. The offense is young, but has has some serious talent.
NFL refs are underpaid for the job they do and the risk they put themselves in. As you will most likely be in your 40s before you become a head ref, the health risk of getting drilled by a 250lb linebacker is very real and probably not worth the 70K per year they are making.
I think they realized they screwed up, but didn’t want to rile the home fans by overturning the call.
I went to Youtube to watch this, and I agree that Green Bay intercepted the ball. The Seahawks were very lucky tonight.
