“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.”
"He should have just batted the ball away" I guess no one saw what happened at the end of the Lions game.
After the controversial finish to Monday night's game between the Packers and the Seahawks, the seat the replacement referees - and NFL Commissioner Rodger Goodell - currently occupy went from hot to scalding.
Making matters even worse is this statement, posted to the official Facebook and Twitter account of the Lingerie Football League by LFL Commissioner Mitchell Mortaza, claiming that officiating crews currently working in the NFL were fired by the all-girl football league due to incompetence.
Because of the LFL’s perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.
We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight’s event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games.
There you have it. The referees that are currently protecting the NFL's integrity weren't even qualified to work a game between the Philadelphia Passion and Tampa Bay Breeze.
Seahawks and Packers. Angry Birds and Cheeseheads.
Talk about some SERIOUS FUN!!
Conceived on a 50-yard line he was fed a healthy diet of blitzes, blocks, statistics, and nachos. He lives for the NFL.
like ben rothlisberger and his "i had a hand on the ball" in the scuffle two years ago.
clearly he had no hand on the ball when 3 miami players dove in and ben was a yard away.
This is the best thing that could have happened for the rest of the NFL. Until something starts happening to convince the NFL that they need real refs in there, they will continue to flaunt the fact that almost nothing can make the league less popular as long as the games (with real players) are being played.
People will still watch.
Anyone that says they wont are full of ****.
People hated Howard Stern and wanted him off the air way back when, but people still tuned in to see what he would do next. Same premise, people will tune in even if only to see what the refs will do next.
