    be careful Tony, if you say anything bad about officiating a few may start to question everything you bet on or even watch for that matter although I couldnt agree with you more.

    But really just disgusting any way you slice it. Determine if the guy was down (he wasn't) if and when there's a fking challenge. Completely inexcusable whistle
    but they can throw a flag... have a 5 minute conference and then pick up said flag thrown on the PATRIOTS... "there is no foul"

    Pats already won the SB only thing that can derail the story is injuries

    Again Iím confused. Did Winston not have a chance to get the ball back after the turnover?

    Was on the wrong side of this as well. Praying for an investigation and perhaps a firing or two.

    2 plays later refs didn't call the late hit Winston received out of bounds as well.

    Its pretty simple. The officials either have money on the games or the NFL is working with Vegas to sway outcomes depending on who the books need in the most lopsided games. NFL games arent a sport. Its a dog and pony show, a circus, a reality TV show =all ENTERTAINMENT. Whatever you want to call it, but its not real football. Too many games come down to the last 2 minutes ( for TV ratings/contracts)and they want to claim parity. I claim BS.

    to be honest Winston didn't help with his 4 int's, but with 3:40 left in the game at the point of the BAD call, TB would have gone up by 3
    after that it's anyone's guest. But how about calling a fair game and give both teams a fighting chance.

    Stop it. It’s human nature. Calls are made. Mistakes happen. Get over it.

    Tony give me odds on Tampa winning the south? A wild card team?

    Except they've been told hold the whistle and let it play out. Numerous times. There's human nature and there's incompetence (referees and the league).

    not sure why you're saying stop it. If the refs don't blow the whistle tampa bay has a TD, they would have gone up by 3 points

    and your question is ridiculous, we all know TB isn't going anywhere

    that was a joke, but it would be much easier buying a Ref over a player
    especially if any of these refs last name is Donaghy.

    And Tennessee comes back to win and cover the 2 points.

    again. Guy made a mistake. Human nature.

    what’s the alternative to referees? Robots?

    your NBA comment is ridiculous as well. One rogue official who worked in a 3 man crew.

By the way, does just one ref blow the whistle or can any of the crew blow the whistle?? Because it always seem like it's just one guy/gal who does this while the other 7 know to let things play out, although it doesn't take but ONE whistle to stop the play. When it's a goal line play or a stop of ball carrier momentum it sounds like everybody is blowing a whistle, yet in a crucial play like this you can barely hear a whistle being blown.
    EXCELLENT explanation!! I just screen shot this and sent it to the NFL!!

    We know TB scored, we don't know Tennessee comes back and wins.

    Indirectly answered this in previous post.

Cameras show it time and again, fukn' ref 5 yds away from play and flag comes flying in from 40 yds away. The rules are repetitive, the rule book has become a 10 volume legal encyclopedia. Every flag is a 5 minute group discussion. This is what you get when a bunch of fukn' lawyers run the game.

    You don't know for sure if the titans come back to win and cover

    I understand it's human nature, but there was a similar play and call a few weeks ago and the league told officials to ease up on the whistle and let it play out, the play can always be reversed.
    listen we can sit here and talk about two dozen calls per week, every week. PI calls are called almost every game
    but it's so obvious that yesterday's blown whistle shouldn't have happened.

    Why do you guys get so upset over this? Was anyone at the game? Do any of you guys go to the games? Do any of you guys change your spending habits because of an advertisement you see on T.V? If not, what ever gives you the idea that the NFL gives a crap about you? The fact is, they don't. They could care less what you think. They are dead wrong about allowing the officials to get away with what they do, but spot on on how they feel about you guys. The vast majority of you are losers. 99% of you cannot even afford a ticket to see a game. Why should the NFL remotely care about what you think? You guys still watch the games. Do you really think that anyone associated with the NFL is going to read this? Get a life losers. The Refs are part of the game, like it or not. You guys are not.

    I donít get why people donít get that sports could be corrupt in some way. Every single thing related to big money in the entire world has shown forms of corruption at one time or another. Politics, natural resources, banking, home ownership, the list could go on and on. Why do people draw the line and say thereís no way the nfl or another sport couldnít be corrupt? I just donít get it. If thereís money to be made someone corrupt will find a way to do it by any means.
