    Breaking NFL Statement regarding Garbage call..

    http://on.nfl.com/LeagueStatement

    I cannot for the life of me understand why they won't admit that call was horrible. I would like them to show where the catch was made by both players all the way through to the ground. I am appalled that this league we all love are blatantly calling all of us idiots. I would lose my mind if this happened to Miami. Not only does it damage the leagues reputation but now conspiracy theories are coming in regarding Vegas swing bets. I love that this sport now has become like boxing.

    They admitted the ref missed the PI call on Tate but you didn't really expect Goodell to admit to a mistake, especially in lieu of the ref lockout did you?

    Not at all, but what it boils down to is now these refs are going to be so indecisive these games are going to be awful. The once "protect the shield and the integrity of the game" has been thrown out the window with this statement. The integrity of this game is tarnished and fans/players/coaches who are paid to play this game are now being put in harms way. From no calls (Heyward-Bey) to length of time it takes to complete a game (Jets-Phins).

    If the NFL admits they are wrong and the replacement refs were wrong it strengthens the case in favor of the regular NFL referees.

    In other words, the officials blew the call. NFL office confirms that the simultaneous possession issue was reviewable, and Jennings, not Tate, CLEARLY had possession. They blew it. At least the NFL acknowledged Tate's mauling/passing interference during the play. Imo Tate came accross as looking awful at the end of the game, trying to look the part of the hero and lying blatantly about the PI shove off. I wasn't crazy about Pete Carroll either, although I never liked him. He was full of it, too. But Tate- flat out liar.

    Josh Sitton summed it up pretty well, and on a level below I would add Russell Wilson to the stfu and quietly enjoy the win list:

    “I would say the two biggest goats out of this whole thing are Pete Carroll and Golden Tate. They’re calling it a good call and Golden Tate saying he caught it and there was no push in the back – be a man. You can be happy you won the game, I understand that, stuff is going to happen, but be a man and admit it was a bull-crap call and stand up and have some integrity. How are you going to face the fricking team when they know it’s bull crap? I think Golden Tate and Pete Carroll are completely full of crap.”

    The NFL will avoid wherever possible admission of a bad call that quite literally changed the game outcome.

    I have to give the league credit for owning up to the fact that the pass interference non call was botched- given that it wasn't reviewable, they could have side stepped the issue but they acknowledged it regardless. It was so blatantly obvious, even those refs shouldn't have missed it.

    This may be overly critical, but I would have rather seen Russell Wilson refer to the play as "fortunate" or something like that rather than sing his own praises and those of Golden Tate. Tate was awful, playing the hero when he knw that he got away with not one but two fast ones on the play. And the push-off pass interference was flat out pre meditated cheating.
