Boycotting the games is like Boycotting the Housewives of Orange County. EVERYONE loves a train wreck, why would you NOT tune in to see the carnage?

Drama and controversy are great for ratings, nobody is NOT tuning in.

Boo-hoo, Green Bay.   Cry

Makes up for the game in November 1989 at Lambeau, where the replay officials blew it and overturned the call of "no touchdown, across the line of scrimmage" on Don Majkowski in the legendary "Replay Game" of the Bears vs. Packers.

For years, Packers fans and referree apologists have argued that Majkowski's foot was on the Bears 15 yard line when he released the ball (LOS was the 14), but that's TODAY'S rule; back then, what mattered was where the *ball* was released...and the call on the field should have stood because there wasn't enough visual evidence to overturn it.
 
So, 23 years later...and even with the help of instant replay...nothing much had changed. Referees, regular and replacement alike, can contrive some pretty terrible calls, if they really get their back into it.

Not trying to stick up for these referrees but, its much easier in slow mo replay to make a call than it is in fast motion on the field.  Also, I was not aware that over the last few years with the regular referrees they never made bad calls?

I quit watching 2 weeks ago but I did see that replay, I had already seen 50 calls this year worse than that one, seems people go nuts when a questionable call happens to end a game but in reality a bad call early in the game is just as egregious. The worst part of the call was the no pass interference call for the shove in the back, but I havent seen a pass interference call on a hail mary on 30 years. The funny part was the two refs standing shoulder to shoulder giving conflicting calls.

If you watch the replay the ref who finally signals TD 10 seconds after the play waits until the GB player rolls off the pile and has the ball.....They will never admit this but there is no doubt in my mind he thought GB was on offense otherwise how could he wait that long see GB with the ball and call it a TD

Here's the official NFL statement on the matter. Basically it says offensive interference should have been called, but since it wasn't, everything else was by the book.

http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/nfl-official-statement-final-play-green-bay-packers-seattle-seahawks-monday-night-football-game-article-1.1167843

No matter what else, I think we can all agree that since this happened to Green Bay and their fans and bettors, it really isn't as serious as it might have otherwise been.

I agree and had the same exact thought. Yet, it was the call and to reverse it would have required incontrovertible visual evidence. What a mess.

And screw those rich team owners and obscenely rich players, and the fans with too much money on their hands to buy the NFL's overpriced tickets, and especially all those gamblers with money to burn betting stupid football. Screw them all.

The fact they make that kind if money for just 20 games worth of work isn't really the issue. It is more about the value they add to a multi-billion dollar business. Regardless, you know they were laughing their rears off after the game. It was like money in the bank.

The refs are required to be in town Thursday morning to start reviewing film and such, most of them get there Wednesday night and leave on Monday morning...They work 5 days a week just like anyone else....They dont show up at the game 3 minutes before kickoff and leave 3 minutes after the game is over like the refs at your flag football games....

Not a peep out of Goodell on this. What a coward. A coward that makes $20 million per year. Not bad for just being the front man for the owners but now he's not even doing that.

"The NFL" issued an official statement on this.

Goodell works for the owners. He does what they command. They locked the professional officials out. If they wanted to end this stalemate and bring back the professional officials, Goodell would take care of it in a heartbeat.

I agree that there was no way to overturn the ruling on the field based on the evidence, not to mention a potential riot of 50,000 fans storming the field....But I have watched this replay many times now and there is no doubt in my mind (100%) that referee #26 got confused and thought the Pack was on offense....The way he was acting watching the struggle (not making a call) and waits until the Pack player rolls over with the ball and then signals TD.....Like I said no doubt what happened but the league will never ever admit it
