Sorry Packer fans

Postby SeaWolf » Mon Sep 24, 2012 11:43 pm

I now know what's it's like to be a Steelers fan, and I do not like it. NO GAME not even a Super Bowl should be determined by bad officals. The Seahawks should have lost.

Yeah, that was brutal. What a disgrace.

On a fantasy note. I'm sure many owners lost their matchup this week after Tate caught that last "TD". Or, what is even more brutal if thought they won because Wilson threw that last interception, only to realize it was turned into a TD.

Anyone care to share their story??

...of course it should never come down to the final minute, the Packers offense did not play up to their standards - their offensive line was a sieve especially in the first half, Rodgers could have gone into the stands and grabbed 5 fans who would have given him better protection. Kudos to the Seahawks for totally confusing the Packers offense and not letting them dictate how the game unfolded.

That 1st half Seahawk Def was crazy good.

Yeah, Chris Clemons really helped me in my IDP league! ;-D ;-D

Seattle D/ST is becoming a good team to start, really seem to be building on last year's success. I have them in a couple leagues and am trying to get them in more.

I know I am in the minority but the only thing I can clearly say with conviction is that there was nothing conclusive about the catch/interception. Unlike the rest of the media pundits who want to use this as a target of opportunity to bash the officials, I cannot look at the replays and definitively say that there was not simultaneous possession.

I'm fact, I will take it one step further and say that as I watched the play live and on replay, I actually sided with the officials. To me, it looks like both players have control of the ball.

Wow. Can say without hesitation that I saw live and on replay the exact opposite. One guy caught the ball and one guy caught the guy who caught the ball. The only thing Golden about that play was the shower the Packers got.
As for the opportunity to bash, it wasn't taken it was given. The league and subsstandard replacements gave the opportunity. Had they been competent we would have made allowances for some errors.
