Also, the Tuck Rule, Holy Roller, Fail Mary, Bottlegate, 1979 AFC Championship are all major bad calls. And I'm sure there's others.

So is there majority support for a crew in New York watching and correcting calls? Would the Tuck Rule have been done correctly with this remote oversight?

I would also have to say the game between the Patriots and the Panthers, a Monday night game. At the end, the Patriots were robbed a touchdown because the officials did not see pass interference. I don't know if it was either holding or pass interference. Whatever the case is, Brady was screaming at the officials for the missed call. That is absolutely absurd. I know I don't like the Patriots but you can't make up or miss calls as an official.

Just like Super Bowl 47. I'm sure the league has some sort of rationalization of this sort of thing. But it makes their results suspect if they are dependent on just ignoring fouls selectively.

I don't even know if that the league changed the rules which called the officials to miss a call in the Patriots-Panthers monday night game. That was an odd.

To me, I also say the Bert Emmanuel catch. That also has to be awful.

The Music City Miracle (Including proof of the Lateral Pass) - YouTube
I don't remember the Music City Miracle but I know you were screaming because you were excited because you're a Titans fan. But I don't know if it was a lateral pass or not. Also the Tuck Rule. If you lose the ball, even if your knee was down and even if your arm was coming forward, it is a fumble. There were at least a bunch of angry Raider fans.

It was pretty violent from the fans too. There were a lot of angry Browns fans throwing bottles of the field. To me I think the Browns should have won that game. I believe it was against the Jaguars.

The Tuck Rule, and Mike Renfro's disallowed touchdown reception in the 1979 AFC Championship Game.
