Reverse The Call? Never Gonna Happen!
It's been interesting to see the reaction to the blown call in the Packers/Seahawks game Monday night. For the most part, even those who are not Packer fans are commenting that the Pack got robbed on the last play of the game. Even the President said the replacement refs have got to go. I saw a story last night that reported the ref who made the touchdown call on the field had only high school and college experience. I also saw an ESPN analyst say that the problem isn't that these guys are numbskulls, but that they weren't prepared for the pace and intensity of an NFL game. How true. O.k., the ref on the field blowing the call is one thing, but the guys in the review booth upstairs are apparently not replacement refs. And they had all the video evidence right there in front of them with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight, and they still screwed it up! Me thinks the NFL may have bigger problems than just a contract dispute. As for the call to demand Commissioner Roger Goodell reverse the call and award the win to the Packers, never gonna happen, gang! Although that would be the "gentlemenly" thing to do, it would leave all reviewed calls up for "further review", so to speak. By the way, resolving the ref issue would reportedly cost each team $300k. And these owners make how much? Hmmm. We'd love to hear what you think! Drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
