Especially since the NFL viewed the video and still supported the decision

This strike has nothing much to do with money, the owners and league have plenty of that. Goodell is just whining that very few people today have defined benefit plans.

Well, so what. The refs are only asking that those currently employed be grandfathered in and any new refs hired get a 401(K).

I don't even have a defined benefit plan whines Goodell. You might not have much of an NFL if this doesn't get settled real quick you moron.

I think it will because fans are royally pissed.

Why does the ref that called it a touchdown get the final call? Don't they have to confer if there is a disputed call?

Whole thing was jazzed in the way it was handled. He went right to the booth without going to the 2 conflicting refs like he should have.

First of all, I could do without instant replay, because (1), it doesn't guarantee the correct call and (2), it prolongs the game. Furthermore, I don't give a rats behind who the officials are, because the bottom line is, no one is perfect. Let's face it, bad calls [just like bad plays and bad coaching decisions] are a part of every game. With that said, whoever expects human beings to be perfect [simply because they put on a striped shirt] are fooling themselves. Lastly, I'd just like to say, if you thought the call which ended Monday night's game was bad, it was nothing when compared to Green Bay's pass protection - which is the real reason they lost. I say let the coaches coach, let the players play, and leave the calls to the officials. That way I can just sit back, drink a beer, and enjoy the game - whether my team wins or not. Peace!

I have got to see if those refs could mess up any worse than they did last night.

This might make football more interesting to watch instead of the snooze fest that it usually is.
