NFL  > General NFL  > Official unofficial bashing of officials thread!

I really can't say I feel sorry for the PAck. But what happened last night seems to be the icing on the "official" cake. A game was finally decided by a bad call! I am not sure if this is a first, but it seems not the last as long as these undereducated replacement refs are looming about the field like Zombies.


Feel free to cry here and post all the bad calls u can find on the Ole youtube!
I am sure there are plenty with more to come. We have "officially" Bastardized the game. BECAUSE OF MONEY?

The NFL is suppose to "officially" address the Hail Mary issue in last nights game. I gurantee there is no way they reverse the decision and the W! A moot point!

bads refs... bad calls. but the NFL has to make the changes. they knew these replacement refs were going to make mistakes and were not "up to the challenge" of officiating NFL games. and now we (the Packers, especially) have to live with poor judgement until this mess can be resolved. hopefully, that will be before thursday nite football.

If that had been in Philly, a total riot would have occurred. Gotta hand it to the packer fans for having some class after being choked out of a win!

I thought the Packers handled this defeat with lots of class. Hopefully the union officials will be back soon to restore integrity to the game.

Not that I watch all the games every game day but it just seems from what I've seen and read, the worst officiating has occurred when the games are Sunday night, Monday night or Thursday night. these guys can't handle the brighter lights.

Brandon Spikes said it best, "the replacement refs should go back to Foot Locker."

Is it true that some of them came from the LFL and have now lost their jobs by working NFL games?

So if we can get our hands on a Foot Locker shirt, we can show up at a stadium nearby on Sunday and call a game. Great!!! lol!

Replacement Refs Handbook

last night on one our newscasts they played a scene from the movie The Replacements that involved a ref trying to assess a penalty and couldn't come up with how many yards the team was being penalized. Damn funny!

Not sure but it would be a good reason to be off-sides. LOL.

Wonder if there will be a sequel where the refs are the replacements instead of the players. Art imitating life.

The league has "officially" ruled on the whole "Unofficial official" calling on the field. I was concerned I screwed that up! NAH anyway.... They "officially" upheld the " unofficial Official call" There....it's OFFICIAL!

officially..this whole mess is an official debacle.

I "officially" feel sorry for Packer fans..... If it had been a wee closer of a call... but two missed calls on the same play is interesting to say the least!

I suppose the Ravens supposed game winning field goal is official as well?
