No way that was a TD by Seattle...but since I don't care much for Rodger's Discount Doublecheck and the cocky Packers.....too bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Honestly, I'm glad they left it as a TD. Maybe this will get a deal done quicker with the real refs. What an awful, awful call.

That was the worst officiating I have ever seen! A true throwing of a game by the refs!

Tate took the ball from the defender a second after it was intercepted....were the refs blind? That was flat out theft.

That was the worst call I've ever seen. Tate mugged the DB in the end zone, pushed him so hard in ther back he could have caused whiplash. Most blatant offensive pass interference ever, especially with every eye on the end zone as it was the last play in the game and Wilson floated the ball in there. Jennings intercepts with the ball to his chest while Tate has his hands on it. INT, game over. They reviewed the play, no way to miss the PI or the INT. Biggest joke I've ever seen.

I can't believe what I just saw. Absolutely pathetic thank god it wasn't against Miami.

If I was a Packers fan, I'd need to be sedated right now. This is an absolute embarrassment now. Bring back the real refs already.

Yep Tate pushed the defender like crazy before the pick....than he pulls the ball out after the pick....and Tate only had one hand on it. I wonder if the Pack can protest the game? Probably not.

I don't think that Tate even had it- Jennings had it to his chest, Tate just had his hands on it and didn't let go. One ref called TD, the other ref who was right there called INT, and he had a better view from the back as both players rolled over toward the back of the end zone. Jennings had it, bottom line. Worst call ever, a total embarrassment. No way they could miss that after reviewing the film either. Tate got away with two thefts on that play and acted like a rock star after the game was over. This might be the moment that the replacement refs jumped the shark, the Packers got screwed.

Hey that reminds me....I have a friend named Dan in my fantasy football league who is a huge Cheesehead Packer fan....I got to send him a text. Ohhhh damn he must feel sick. Imagine if that happened to the Phins against the Jets or Pats. I would lose my mind.

What's mystifying is that Tate committed the worst offensive pass interference I've ever seen, and the refs got to see it perfectly on instant replay. The Packers DB CLEARLY has possession of the ball on that last play, got the INT, Packers win. And after reviewing the play, the mugger Tate is given possession, Seahawks win. Terrible call in terms of live officiating, worst call EVER in terms of using instant replay. If the game was in Green Bay the refs probably give the call and game to the Packers. How bad was it? I got out of bed just to make these comments.

WOW!

At least we apparently aren't the only team that gets straight ****ed like that. (think Steelers fumble vs. us)

I think the Seahawks were a 3 point favorite in Vegas. It went from a 12-7 to 14-12, imagine the millions of dollars that switched hands in Vegas. Maybe the refs had a side bet on the action? :chuckle:

The worst part is that I understand the NFL's position here, and I respect that they're trying to put the part time officials (who make pretty good money, by the way) on the same retirement plan as the rest of the league employees, a lot of whom are full time, make less money than the refs, and certainly don't get that sweetheart pension.

But this is horrendous.

Seahawks were favored to win this game? Really?

After they called it a touchdown in that stadium, can you imagine the riot that could ensue if they reversed that? There would be no replacement refs because they would have been murdered. Poor call on the field, of course.

One non-call regarding pass interference on that play and another PI call when it was actually offensive PI yet it went the other way. My Dad is probably punting kittens out where he lives as he's a lifelong Packer fan.

Though this sort of call does seem Dolphins-esque

If Seattle was favored by 3, they still didn't cover lol.

I had Green Bay -3 in that game, and for a good chunk. It fit one of my favorite and most reliable systems, and once it dipped to -3 from -3.5 it triggered a larger wager.

I was stunned initially but at least it lead to a few hours entertainment. I stayed up and watched the aftermath. Admittedly, I had a lucky weekend prior to that game so it didn't sting quite as much as it otherwise would have.

The refs were not in position to make the call. I noticed that immediately, while I was sweating my wager. When the two refs converged and briefly made eye contact I was convinced they'd somehow call a touchdown.

Jennings rotated to his left on the ground with the ball obviously pinned to his chest just a split second after the ref signaled touchdown. If he had done that a half second or more earlier, IMO, it never would have been called a touchdown. Jennings made a great play but he didn't seem to grasp the situational variables, that the other guy's hand on the ball allowed just enough opportunity for the refs to screw up. You had to use every ounce of energy to separate and show the ball in your control, even if seemingly it was long after the fact.

There was one positive. That play prompted ESPN to interview Johnny Avello of Wynn sportsbook on its Outside the Lines segment yesterday. Johnny is a good guy, always asking how I'm doing and about my family when I see him. He's gutsy enough to put up the earliest lines in town, same as when he ran Bally's sportsbook for so long.

I'm sure Seattle doesn't feel a bit of sadness, nor would I about the
way a Superbowl was stolen by the "real" refs.
