They changed the rules in the middle of the game. If the ball is snap, you can't go back to replay the previous play.. the ball was snapped and they went back to replay anyway.. bad, very bad!
Yeah and the only question is, why can't you go back to the previous play if the ball is snapped? It doesn't make sense.

Yes I remember that game, and that call. Jerome Bettis's head almost exploded! Being a Browns fan, I'd be lying if I said that I didn't enjoy that a little bit. But in all honesty it was a bad call. Wonder what the spread was, and if the refs had money on that game?

Yeah, that was a joke. You gotta learn to get the coin toss right. For Lucket, that was hilariously terrible.

The Inaccurate Reception, Packers-Seahawks. Blatantly the wrong call, and irrevocably changed the outcome of the game, as there was no time left on the clock for the Packers to respond on the field.

No Seahawks fan will forget the 2006 Super Bowl between the Seahawks and the Steelers. Blown calls caused Pittsburgh to win the Super Bowl.

I wouldn't say the Hawks would have won the game for sure, but yes, the game likely would have been decided on the final possession had the calls not been so seemingly one sided in that game.

To me that call was brutal and irrelevant. There is no reason to blow a call like that. Just terrific.

Yeah and most videos on YouTube has the commentators of Tirico and Gruden. I also listened to Packer announcers Wayne Larrivee and Larry McCarren commentate on the call and they even could not believe that the replacement refs blew the call.
