Uhh no. We still all love football. Jumping the shark is not the proper phrase

But yes, this needs to get fixed.

Goodell just got OWNED. We finally have a blown play by the refs that directly affects the outcome of the game, and it comes on Monday Night Footbal with the entire country watching.

It's over, Roger Goodell's refusal to solve this issue is done. There's absolutely nothing he can do to hide anymore. Twitter, Facebook, NFL Network forums, sports forums like this.... The entire NFL fan base is going nuts right now. I got $50 that says something happens in the negotiations before Thursday night football this week.

Yeah... The whole 'regular refs make mistakes too!' stance is beyond laughable now. It's mockable

What makes it worse is the fact the idiot in the replay booth (an NFL employee, not a ref) upheld the call even though there was irrefutable evidence otherwise. NFL has zero credibility right now.

The replay official should be fired.

Somewhere out there, there are dozens of guys who have black and white striped shirts hanging in their closets. And, they are grinning from ear to ear.

What. A. Disaster.

Seriously, for the ridiculous prices to attend NFL games, or to watch sunday ticket, this is a joke. It's been evident for some time that the NFL is completely overrated. And they don't really care about the product delivered to fans, because loyal minions will watch regardless of how unwatchable the sport's become.

As a Viking fan I feel the Pack got screwed. Three plays in that last drive were terrible penalties. The interception at the end, the interference, and the roughing the passer were all weak calls.

But Steve Young said it best...If the games are still watched and the stadiums are full nothing will move the NFL to mediate.

I think every NFL fan should boycott the NFL and not watch or attend games until the regular refs are back.

That should send a message
