What the hell was that? Time to monetize, tweet tweet.
Everyone is blaming the refs the rule is what it is.
The regular refs did the tuck rule against Oakland in the playoffs before there was even a such rule so that by far was allot worse it cost Oakland a chance to go to the Super Bowl.
Every team that has lost seems to blame the refs because they are replacement refs the Packers lost bottom line they are 1-2 and the Vikings are 2-1.
The rule? It was obviously in Green Bay's hands...how is that a tie goes to offense? Tate also did offense PI and pushed off. How can they call that after watching the instant replay. Yes I blame the high school refs.
Tie goes to the receiver, I don't see the problem.
The rule is Tie goes to the receiver I think the problem with these kind of calls the refs don't understand that they can inturpet the rule a certain way.
And when the "real" refs come back and pull this exact same crap, which they do every year, will you complain to then?
The Seahawks were admittedly screwed in the Superbowl against the Steelers so they should get a few calls their way too...
Have you been watching many games? I have never seen so many horrible bizarre calls. Yes I would say the same things about the real refs. I thought the Vikings got robbed and I'm a 49er fan, calls have been crazy.
For the tie, I suggest you watch the reply for the 12th time, that was not a tie. Jennings was clearly holding it against his chest and tate had one hand on it far away.
Best Picture to Describe This Madness.
My team was not involved in that fiasco. Clearly the Green Bay player caught the ball first. Tate stuck his hand in after the fact and did indeed get what appeared to be a good grip on the ball, but that doesn't matter. Here's the rule (pay close attention to the second sentence):
Item 5: Simultaneous Catch. If a pass is caught simultaneously by two eligible opponents, and both players
retain it, the ball belongs to the passers. It is not a simultaneous catch if a player gains control first and an
opponent subsequently gains joint control. If the ball is muffed after simultaneous touching by two such
players, all the players of the passing team become eligible to catch the loose ball.
This. The Packers defender caught the ball, and then after the fact the Seahawks player tried to wrestle control from the player.
What's even more embarrassing than the blown calls is the inability to make it at least seem like they know what they are doing. Like the two refs simultaneously giving two different calls. Or them spotting the ball in the wrong place (which they do all the time), or giving extra timeouts (which they did in the 49ers game) or taking 5 minutes to figure out something that the announcer knew the answer to immediately (those slowdowns have happened in every game I've watched this year).
All in all it's been pretty bad; hope the labor dispute gets resolved soon!
Replacement refs working in NFL were FIRED from Lingerie Football League hah
LMAO. You cannot be serious. First off, the Oakland-New England situation was completely different and applied differently. Second, not only did Tate commit offensive interference, WHICH SHOULD RENDER EVERYTHING AFTER HE DID THAT MOOT, he at no time had possession of the ball during the fracas. Third, the umps were totally out of position. Fourth, one called it a touchback while the other called a touchdown and the fucking head ref never even came to discuss.
This is a fucking fiasco and outside of the people in Seattle, I'd say you are the only honk in the country to believe this was not a cluster-fuck of the greatest magnitude.
