  • Get over it

    The refs blew a call on 1 play out of 130 plays. I reffed peewee games and blew worse calls.It looks so easy on slowmo replay.

    Not so easy when you live here, Johnny. At least the Bears double doink that ended their march to the Super Bowl was from an actual player. Anyway, today we don our black and gold, go to second lines and concerts. We are celebrating our dead Saints and giving thanks for a great season and a rebirth come fall. Off to next second line. Enjoy the game.

          They didn't blow a call. They saw it, ignored it. And, I'm a Pats fan. No way "get over it" applies here. Enjoy the Boycott Bowl and other festivities, those in N.O. today.

              Johnny. Even you after a 12 pack of Schlitz would have made that call. Love ya buddy.

                Certainly you people must have more important things to worry about than ancient history. Two week old news. Issues with more gravitas.
                Who won the Kitten Bowl today?

                  Itís embarrassing. Today kinda salvaged it in a weird way, but itís been a bad look. We looked like crybabies, which is amazing considering how bad a call it was. But we did it.

                  The conspiracy theories alone, lol.

                      I, um, I find it hard to follow the talented (and lovely) Seebass. I mean: almost impossible...

                      Still, we must ALL agree - yesterday's T-P nailed it :

                        While it was a terrible non-call and it cost the Saints a trip to the Super Bowl it is not unprecedented and in fact did not have the most serious consequences for any sports team in history. That belongs to the St. Louis Cardinals who were robbed of a World Series title back in 1985 by this blown call.

                          The fact that there was a horrible call 34 years ago in a completely different sport, does not negate the "serious consequences" that this non-call had. Nor did it have anything to do with how utterly HORRIBLE a non-call this was. Drew Brees had an amazing year, and he's over the age of 40. He's not going to have many more kicks at the can, if any, and to come that close, but have it ripped away due to at the very least, incompetence by the officials, or at worst, something more sinister.....still pisses me off.

                          I did not watch on Sunday, and I'm not sure how far into next season it will be before I watch again. I don't generally have respect for incompetence in my personal life, so why invest time in a product which is apparently filled with incompetent individuals, who have a direct impact in the outcome.

                            Geez, I never said that it negated the "serious consequences" that the non-call had. I was merely pointing out that bad calls have happened before and in the case of the Cardinals the consequences were greater. I agree the Saints got screwed and it denied them a "chance" to win the Super Bowl. In the Cardinals case they were denied the World Series championship. And I'm a Cubs fan saying this.

                              I'll get over when the NAH.....er, NFL actually does something about it.
                              Has there been any official statement that changes are forthcoming to ensure something similar doesn't happen again (see The Tuck)? no
                              Has any sort of action been taken of the gross negligence exuded by 4 refs who all watched the play unfold and any one of who could have corrected the error? no
                              Anybody been reprimanded? no
                              Fined (other than the helmet to helmet hit which is being contested)? no
                              Fired? no

                              Goodell et all simply want to ignore it happened and wait for everyone to "move on."

                              I am now seeing that Ceasars Entertainment is an "official sponsor" of the NFL. Quite the statement to see that an industry that once reviled any sort of relationship with Vegas now has taken casino operators as bedfellows.

                              Oh, and your Cardinals example doesn't fly because that will NEVER happen again. MLB has adopted a replay system that works and this is an apples/oranges argument. So, Cards fans have not reason to feel worried this will happen to them again.
