I agree with you. I thought the same thing. If they had taken a safety the Seahawks would've been down 3. A team is much more desperate when down by more than 3 points and will attack the endzone on all 4 downs whereas they would be more content to try a field goal to extend the game.
What in the freaking name of krishna just happened
In good news... MLB no longer has the most inept commissioner in pro sports!
In any event, the officials really get credit for this one. Wow.
David Stern is an imbecile. Good freaking lord.
packers have no balls -why validate this by comming back out
I don't think they had a choice. They would've been fined and possibly penalized in other ways for refusing to come out.
I love it.Try and spin it now Goodell.
You don't think the officials just gifted the Seahawks a win with that
http://m.deadspin.com/5946112/the-lingerie-football-league-announces-that-it-fired-a-couple-crews-which-apparently-are-now-officiating-in-the-nfl-because-of-incompetenceThe NFL employs refs that were fired by the Lingerie Football League, due to incompetence.
spider is right in that the refs are basically fighting for their right to be incompetent with no repercussions.As for why the new refs aren't being schooled daily? They're only making something like 3K a game. Not nearly enough to be a full-time job.
The referees' union and NFL team owners remain at odds on several issues -- pay, staffing levels and the arbitration system, to name a few. But Scott Green, the referee who's head of the NFL Referees Association, says there's one proposal above all others that he and his colleagues can't manage to swallow: the league wants to freeze their long-running pension plans and switch them to less attractive 401(k)-style retirement plans.
