WORST CALL EVER!!

Recommended Posts

Anyone see the last play of the Packers game? Absolutely the worst call I have ever seen.

Bet the other guys will be back to work soon. For once in my life I am siding with a union. Cant believe it.

HAHAHAHA! Love seeing the Packers get jobbed like that.

It is pretty embarrassing that the ref couldn't get that call right even after getting a second look though.

On a happier note though - This may just be the push Goodell and the League needs to get the union back on the field.

The Pack got the first down they should not have earlier in the game, bad call and a TD for them.

I guess it went the other way on the last call.

Bad calls all night long. Worst call at the end, I don't know, there were alot of pretty bad calls.

Green Bay did not look good tonight at all no matter what the refs did.

How many times did Rodgers get sacked?????

Onje has to give Seattle some credit for hanging in there and playoing as well as they did on defense.

I must admit I loved the call. Its sending me to bed with a smile on my face. I just wish the second half would have went like the first half. I wasn't sure if Rodgers would survive the night the way it was going for a while. Hopefully the pack will forget how to run the ball again.

Yes, the D Line for Seattle took it to Rodgers the 1st half. Other player who did not seem to be named much was Clay for the Pack.

Slept great last night, now off to some fishing.

That last call will certainly make the ESPYs! Just being a fan of the NFL, regardless if you are a Packer or Seahawk fan, makes you cringe to see the level of the game diminished by such ineptitude by the replacement 'officials'. Goodell can't have too much hair left on his head after watching the integrity of the game suffer as much as it has in three short weeks. Anyone care to contribute to the officials' pension fund to get them back on the field asap, since Goodell's a bit too stubborn??

The bad news is that you applied the wrong rule to the situation. The good news is that you are over qualified to be a NFL replacement ref, so you have that going for you.

Probably the most entertaining morning yet for reading facebook. smile

I can't believe how football brings out the worst in people.

From the words of Limt, you cant let refs win or lose a game for ya. Or something like that.

With that, I can see the call either way, I personally would have called passing interference, or an interception. But I can see not reversing the original call as well. Everyone is calling to end the strike, but the regular refs I am sure will flub a few calls, and people will be asking for the replacement refs back.

Bad call, sure, but you cant let your team be in the situation where your team can lose if there is a bad call. Besides, it was just a payback for the extra first down on the Packers TD drive.

In the end, the Packers are 1-2, the Vikes are 2-1

I hate the packers, but as a fan of the NFL that call disgusts me. What a crock. The 2nd part of the simultaneous catch rule states that it is not simultaneous if one player has possession and a 2nd player latches onto the ball later, which is clearly what happened. What an embarrassment.

The game has NO integrity, period.. It's all about the money and thats it.

I sent this to ESPN and NFL last night. "I'm done!!! I love good football but refuse to watch games decided by which team wins the "lousy call" lottery. Call me when the real refs return."

Fans hold the only real leverage to end this nonsense! I watched four good games Sunday (including the Vikes) whose outcome could have easily been determined by incompetent decisions. Mistakes I can accept as part of the game. Incompetence is loathsome.

Part of the uproar is people not understanding what possesion is. You don't get credit for possesion just because you have the ball 3 feet above the ground. All that matters is what is happeneing at the moment of actuall possesion and a legal catch after hitting the ground.

That being said I agree with Scott the NFL replay people in the booth who are the same people who have done it all along and are NOT replacements could not possibly overturn the call.

I have a suggestion for the packers play better the 1st 59 minutes 55 seconds of the game if you're so great...

Exactly.

This is bigger than what color uniform the teams are wearing. I am a fan of the NFL first and foremost, and this is a huge black eye on the league.

As James likes to say: NFL credibility dead.

I understand procession and two hands on the ball, up into his chest when he comes to the ground is procession...period...and what most/all of the world saw last night. It was a joke, everyone knew what happened was a joke and a disgrace. There wasnt a single person on set that agreeded with the call, not one. The guys on set were even uncomfortable having Russel Wilson on set and honestly seemed like they couldn't wait to get him off of it so they could say what they could say. Partly because his team was awarded a win when they clearly should not have been and also because he said "tremendous" 46 thousand times during the interview. And the interview with Tate? Really? It was almost like a "whatcha talkin bout Willis" moment.

Regardless of what happened the first half, the game was decided on the final play, and a call that will be remembered as one of the worst calls in NFL history.

I hope this is the final push to get something done. When it costs teams games, it needs to stop. I honestly think the ref that gave the Td call messed up on what color was on offense and defense. Pathetic.

I learned last night that holding the guy who is holding the ball can be interpreted as possession... crazy

On a side note, I also learned that it is perfectly legal to shove any defenseman to the ground when you are in the endzone waiting for a pass.

"Did you push off?" Golden Tate "I-dunno-whatchou-talkin-bout... I-dunno-whatchou-talkin-bout..."

My daughter (visiting from Denver) And I were discussing the possibility of two teams scheduled to play on a prime time game refusing to take the field in protest. Is that a possibility? I can't believe all 31 owners are in unanimous agreement on the position of the league. Wouldn't that be a show stopper...having all the media poised and several million fans ready for football and ...NO GAME. I'd be cheering harder than I've ever cheered for a game.

LOL, Did you happen to see all the bad calls that went Green Bays way? Most of us did. About time they got one of those kinds of calls. If not for all the gifts to the Packers that last play isn't even needed. Pretty common for the Pack to get the breaks.

The Vikes got jobbed yesterday too...Only the Vikes pulled it out handily against a team that solidly stomped the Packers.

Did you see Rodgers whining up on the podium last night. smile

Didn't see Ponder whining about being jobbed.

Typical Packer fan...Always living in the past... smile

Just keep re-living the week 3 games. laugh

I'd say the Packer packer packing was embarrassed about last nights loss, and leaving town as fast as possible. wink

      The pups and I put on 10.5 miles today and flushed 3 hens, 2 grouse and I killed a pine tree, 1 rooster flushed wildly 100 yards to left of us. It sure was fun to get out and seeing some birds. We did jump a good number of deer.

      A couple of Facebook posters on Lake Vermilion Cabin Owners group said that there was still open water in Big Bay Friday Morning.  I am guessing that they may be talking about Oak Narrows.  I'm staying with my original freeze-over date of Thursday, December 1.   Somebody I know who went out fishing from McKinley Park Saturday said that Big Bay was frozen over.  He also said he walked all around the bay and found thicknesses of 1" to 5" of ice, so it is still very questionable.  It should be safe for walking by the middle of next week.   This site will have ice reports for the next week or so.  I will be up the middle of next week and should report on the ice by Thursday night.  The moderator has merged this topic with the Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports topic so I will switch to posting there when I have fishing reports.  Good luck fishing, but be very careful of varying ice conditions.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.
    • smurfy
      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.
    • leech~~
      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣    
    • Tom Sawyer
      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆
