Thank you, I'm glad you said that. I still think it was a fumble, period. I don't care what the ref said, that was still a fumble.


Plus at least 25 years before the Tuck Rule Game the same two teams played each other in the 1976 AFC Championship game when Ben Dreith called Ray Hamilton for roughing Ken Stabler. This is kind of strange to me.

Look at the title on the thread, it is not named worst officiating calls in ALL football or college football. My point is we are discussing worst calls in PRO football.


Plus discussing questionable calls in pro football is also acceptable on this thread anyways.

There were a couple of blown calls in the 2015 game between the Giants and Cowboys in week 1.

Giants vs Cowboys: NFL admits two blown calls

Here are some other blown calls of last year
1. Patriots-Bills blown dead call
2. Jaguars-Ravens ending, I believe the Ravens were called for a facemask penalty

Here's my theory about Phil Luckett's coin toss:

Phil Lucketl thought that Jerome Bettis said heads but whenever you listen to it; I clearly believe Bettis said tails. That was a costly call for the Steelers. Unbelievable.

From now on... anyone who calls "HEADS"... should point to his HEAD!

But Bettis said tails since Lucket obviously thought that Bettis said heads.

Justin Forsett's left arm and left knee were clearly down but they let the play stand is which is why it was such a bad call. It really bothers by why they couldn't review upstairs..

Worst officiating call in past pro football games

Baltimore Colts and the Green Bay Packers Championship game.

It was a cold snowy day and EVERYBODY could hardly see anything.

The Colts attempted a filed goal to win the game.

The ref called the kick bad giving the championship to the Packers.

Later years with better technology it shows that the kick WAS GOOD.
