Chicago got shafted.

Postby TTTBone » Sun Dec 26, 2004 5:00 pm

Worst call by the refs I've seen all year.
1:26 left, and Bernard Berrian clearly makes the go-ahead TD catch. The refs rule it incomplete and then refuse to overturn the call despite the fact that every camera angle clearly shows Berrian with control, and both feet inbounds.
It doesn't matter that the ball hit the ground after he was tackled out of bounds, he previously had control of the ball with both feet inbounds in the end zone.
Man, Chicago got seriously jobbed. :-t

Worst call all year is right. Those refs should be suspended. Directly cost a team a win.

That's exactly why it's the worst call all year (and this comes from a Packer fan, who hates the Bears).

That call was worse than the "fumble" in Jags/Pack game. Come on, so everytime the ball has slipped out of guys hands going fowards, it was a fumble, you just never bothered to call it?

oh well. I personally think missing the game-tying extra point was a more heartbreaking loss.
Poor Bears :|

Loins fan here -- I agree, the call was horrible. It makes the win seem shallow. If they made the call right, the Lions would have had the ball with 1:27 trailing by 1.

Don't give them the win, make them earn it! Merry Christmas, Lions!

Unbelievable...just embarrassing for the NFL to see their officials blow the call, and then to have the chance to make it up, and can't even get that right.

This call was horrible. Just like that offsides that wasn't called on the 2pt try earlier in the season.
This is only my opinion, if you play the players I suggest and they do not perform well, please don't yell at me.

That call might just cost me the championship.

My opponent has the Lions defense, who would score 3 less points if Chicago's touchdown counted. Instead, I have to rely on the Cleveland D to hold Chris Chambers without a touchdown.

I think that ref is just too arrogant to admit he was wrong.
