Blah, blah, blah, stop cryin in your cheese. That game on Monday night was full of bad officiating from the get go. The packers touchdown drive was" bad call" aided on a call just as bad as the PI call against the Packers toward the end of the game. Every series was an officiating adventure and we all knew it, exept maybe the cheeseheads of the world. If Aaron Rogers led the pack to over 12 point you would have had nothing to worry about. The Packers offense was very pedestrian last night. Finally, when you lose a Superbowl on bad calls then we can both be in the bad call club. Until then, simmer down.

THAT is the point. In fact, any true NFL fan has noticed that it certainly hasn't been confined to the Seattle/Green Bay game. Poor officiating is affecting much too many games and we're only 3 weeks into the season. It's been a fairly minor problem so far because we're only in week 3. It won't be a minor problem by the time we get to the final month of the season or in the playoffs.

yeah i know imagine if the replacement refs officate the playoffs or the superbowl then it would be an issue for players, but these replacement refs suck at doing there jobs and the coaches and players are trying to control theri emotions during each game but its reaching a boiling point very soon.

Are you referring to that one rule or the entire rule book? Have they even seen the rule book?

These guys have been working for months now. They frequently don't know the rules or even where to spot the ball. It's ridiculous. If they can't understand the rules by now, what makes anybody think that reading the rule book the 759th time will make it sink in?

That would be consistent with the 90 year history of the NFL opposing training for the referees. The NFL never wanted the regular refs to get adequate training. It wouldn't make sense if the NFL wanted it for the temps.

They probably had an initial replacement meeting....explained to these clowns what a football was, then told them to make sure they grabbed one of the NFL rule books as they departed....which none of them did...

Jennings caught the ball, pulled it into his chest and planted his feet. In what alternate universe is that NOT an interception? I hope tha Pack DOES decide to take a knee on every play. I think that might light a fire under someone's butt! These refs seem to be fans. You might as well put ME out there officiating a Packers game! Please believe me when I say that I would NOT be impartial!

Taking a knee on every play would improve Tannehill's QB rating.

Of course the nfl would stick by the decision- there just covering there butts.
They know that they messed up but will not publicly say so.
A radio sports guy said something very interesting the other day about the call- he said- he thinks that the refs were scared to death that if they reviewed the call and changed it to a interception, the seattle fans in the stadium would have rioted.
He felt the crowd being as loud and hyped up as they were- intimidated the refs decision.
