Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory



In context, both of them appear to have possession. A case can be made that Jennings has a better angle, but I'm not sure that there is enough there to call it an interception.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Don't kid yourself, InklingStar. No way that was a "simultaneous" catch. Jennings possessed the ball and Tate "co-possessed" it after the fact. The refs fucked this up and have finally directly given the game away. No more screw ups that may or may not have impacted the final score- the refs gave it to Seattle, period.

Tirico is not exactly a fan of the refs, eh?

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Obviously I'm biased, but I don't see it as cut-and-dried as most do. And if it was the wrong call, well I'm happy to be on the positive side of that rather than the negative side. Aaron Rodgers (my fantasy QB three years running by the way) can go cry into his MVP trophies and Super Bowl ring tonight.

Aaron Rodgers was a class act in the press conference.

I guess when I asked if you had a video or a picture I was hoping for something better than a blurry youtube clip from that moment in the game. Because this picture certainly makes it look like Jennings got there first:

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Several pundits on local radio are saying they think it should have been an interception too. Like I said though, even if it was a bad call I'm glad my team was on the winning side of it rather than the losing side.

I think the referees union just doubled their salary demands. And I think they'll get it now.

How about we talk about the eight first-half sacks? That was pretty cool.

As a Pats fan, I'm just glad this will trump Belichick grabbing a ref.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

That was the most fucking awful end to an NFL game ever. I was rooting for the Seahawks all the way - Russell Wilson and their defense were brilliant, but that was just an inexcusably bad call at the end. One of the Monday Night crew said it right, Russell Wilson is the first QB to throw a game-winning interception. ESPN was playing merry hell with the League's reputation afterwards - Young, Dilfer, and Tirico especially - and I loved every minute. The NFL has got to get the real refs back

Good choices for anti-rooting!

Offensive pass interference anyone?

What's the current Vegas odds on tonight's head official needing to change his name and move to Siberia?

Wow. I can't believe the Packers got reamed like that. I know I'm biased (as a Packer fan), but that last call was bullshit. The sad thing is, calls like that have affected many games- it's just the timing of this one that makes it stand out.

Go Pack Go!

Edited to add: I'm pretty sure when I sober up I'll be even more pissed off.

I had my issues last night, so I can feel your pain tonight.

As a guy just watching some football, I think GB got jobbed.

I picked Pack over Pats for the SB. Now we're both a couple of sorry 1-2 fans.

I'm completely biased against the Packers (it's in my blood as a Chicagoan) but DAMN if they didn't get completely fucked by the refs even after a review. If that debacle doesn't get the real refs in by next week, it's going to take nothing short of a walkout by the players to get something done.

I gotta think the bookies in Vegas (and elsewhere) are hating this.

The refs totally buttfucked the Packers without lube. I take back every evil thought I had for NFL refs...they leagues better than these asswipes. Replacement refs suck ass. I'm not even a Packers fan and I think it sucks.
