As noted in my previous blog; the result of the lack of respect, injustice, and incompetency of NFL officiating is going to lead to a riot; and had the refs reversed that blown Monday night call in Seattle, that's just what would have happened.
There is no way Golden Tate caught that final pass, and I had my money on Seattle! Let me tell you, with the lack of R-E-S-P-E-C-T the refs are getting and the unjust nature of unprofessional incompetency, there would have been major implications from the fans in Seattle. There is no way that ref could have reversed that final call.
Furthermore, when Las Vegas gets involved, in the sense wagers are won and lost on unjust refereeing; that may well be where the volcano explodes.
Tragically, this is not the fire, only the smoke rising. It will get worse, before it gets better. The pressure is building, the caldron brewing, the NFL Nation is about to riot!
I do not hold the refs accountable, they are rent-a-cops. The NFL, which I adore, truly adore, needs to mobilize and organize. I respect the owners, the players, and the Commissioner, but they need to realize again; a Nation with an incompetent and inexperienced government will lead to anarchy, uprising, and a riot. The NFL Nation will implode, not explode...just watch!
Added Note: I played for "The U" in the days of "Catholics vs. Convicts." In fact, I was raised a Catholic. Yet, I will never forget, and this was over 2 decades ago, the trash-talking and profanely abusive language of the Notre Dame players. We were always admonished by coach Jimmy Johnson if our team did not try to act with class. Honestly, I was shocked by the Notre Dame players and how rude and vulgar they constantly were. I found them to be the most classless team we ever faced.
In addition, it does not surprise me that Notre Dame's Golden Tate, in interviews afterward, has taken a cowardly stance and denial as to the actual happenings on the final play. He is surely not following "The Golden Rule" and should stand-up with class and make an honest confession. It was the wrong call; period.
