Packers Robbed by Striped Bandits

From NFL.com..."NFL supports decision to not overturn Seahawks' touchdown."

     The powers that be at the NFL have spoken. In a muttering mumbo jumbo of utter nonsense the explanation for the incompetence of the replacement officials reads as if written by a Defense Attorney that attempts to split hairs as he admits his client committed the crime but is technically 'not guilty'! Not only was an offensive pass interference call not made as Golden Tate of the Seahawks shoves Packers cornerback Sam Shields to the ground, but ruling Tate had simultaneous possession of the ball after Packers safety M.D. Jennings clearly intercepted the ball in the back of the end zone for what should have been a touchback, was ruled to stand as a touchdown...end of the game and as far as the NFL is concerned, end of the story.   

     It is far from the end of this swirling nightmare of continuous chaos brought on by the NFL`s refusal to settle the contract negotiations with the leagues officials who have been locked out since June. Not only are the replacement ref`s a disaster to the leagues image and the integrity of the game, they have steadily become a total embarrassment of fumbling, bumbling incompetence that is obvious to the most untrained observer...it is time to end the madness and get this mess straightened out, and QUICKLY!

...This latest fiasco monday night at the end of the Packers-Seahawks game, should be more than motivation enough for the league to step forward and do whatever it takes to end this lock-out.
