        IF, we knew the Packers will make the playoffs anyway, then its not such a big deal, but what if they miss post season by one game.

          C'est la vie.
          Sh*t happens.
          Life isn't fair.
          Breaks of the game.
          That's the way the cookie crumbles.
          and my favorite . . . it is what it is. :wink:

              That didn't take long.
              • The NFL and the NFL Referees Association made enough progress in negotiations Tuesday night that the possibility of the locked-out officials returning in time to work this week's games has been discussed, according to sources on both sides.

                An agreement in principle is at hand, according to one source familiar to talks, although NFL owners have postured with a "no more compromise" stance.

              And now this.
              • The N.F.L. and the referees’ union were closing in on an agreement to end the lockout, which has turned the first three weeks of the season into a controversy-filled mess, according to a person briefed on the negotiations.

                I don't think Tate established any level of dual possession. The Packers player had the ball against his body and Tate stuck one hand in there. By rule that is not possession nor is it dual possession. Whether Tate was able to subsequently wrestle the ball away from the Packers player means absolutely nothing since once the Packers player is down the play is over.

                The NFL is trying to hide behind the "not enough visual evidence" angle which I obviously disagree with.

                I do agree that he media is feuling a little more hysteria than warranted and the league needs to be wary of this leading to some level of violence from either participants (towards the referees) or crowds (against anyone including themselves).
                What Dutra said. Pretty obviously an interception on the replays I've seen.

                  I don't think there's much there which indicates any of these particular refs would on the take however it wouldn't shock me if a phone call was made from Vegas to Goodell telling him he needs to get the deal done.
