Give the refs whatever they want to get rid of these scabs

Don't rush judgement

I think they got the call right...simultaneous possession goes to the offense

Anybody know who Ref #26 is? Has he been the source of equally bad calls during previous games?

JRUD

A tough situation.......I think the call was right, except for the obvious pass interference (which most likely would not have been called by regular refs). If the NFL can't resolve the work stopage, I say fire the regulars, and hire new refs from the major college conferences.

tom,
jennings leaps three feet above the scrum, catches the ball with two hands and lands on tate with one leg on the ground and the other extended beyond the end zone. play is dead and game is over. only then does tate wrap an arm around jennings.
rule states opposing players must obtain the ball at the same time for simultaneous possession. ad nauseum, ad nauseum...
good call, tom.

Having one hand on a ball is not "simultaneous possession". If that were the case a player could make the claim on nearly every play.

Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3, Item 5

"It is not a simultaneous catch if a player gains control first and an opponent subsequently gains joint control"

pantherworld

do some of you know what a simultaneous possession means,,lol. very bad call

jim dansy

clearly JRUD is a moron...bet he knows who replacement ref #26 is

DEW

The REAL refs just got a lot of leverage in the negotiations...

jim dansy

Don't rush to judgement is clearly either ete Caroll, or Ref #26's gay lover...possibly both

big gulps

if the play had happened against the jaguars instead of the packers would we even be talking about this?

bias to teams is an issue, i am ok with the outcome of the game.

Look no further than Jerry Richardson for blame. The owners are telling Goodell to take a hard line. Jerry, stop counting your money and tell the Commissioner to settle!

I think these refs actually make the game more interesting. In the old days before "reviews" and so forth, the human element added to the spice of the game. As long as there isn't bias toward one team, I kind of like it.

LAST NIGHT 9/24/12 WAS THE WORST NIGHT I HAVE EVE WITNESSED IN FOOTBALL !!

I WISH THE " NFL " COMMISSIONERS WOULD EXAMINE THE LAST PLAY OF THE GAME AND OVERTURN THE DECISION AFFECTING THE SCORE AND THE OUTCOME OF THAT STUPID RULING !!!

Players and coaches are partially to blame for this mess because they don't respect the replacements and push the limit way too often.
