    bizarro NFL

    Wins are now losses. More fuel for the fire...

    I realize the NFL is rigged but that was ridiculous.

    The NFL is officially a complete joke. I am done watching for the season or at least until the real refs come back.

    it's like a slow moving train wreck, I can't look away. How the players manage to keep their composure, I don't know

    It is completely ridiculous, when they can't even call blatant fouls that are the same in college, horse collar for example, it's time to cave to the real refs and get them back as soon as possible.

    In Atlanta they don't. We've had two players arrested in the last week.

    To be fair, the NFL rule book states that a reception that is ruled a simultaneous reception on the field is non reviewable. That appears to be the case here.

    It looked like it was not simultaneous though. The GB player looked like he had possession - moreso anyway than the Seattle player.

    It's the coaches who are losing their composure. John Fox and his D-coordinator just got fined $45,000. Belicek, Kyle Shanahan, and John Harbaugh are soon to fined similarly it sounds like. It's a total farce.

    This. I haven't heard anyone on any network call that a touchdown. The CB pulled the ball to his chest with both hands while in the air. There was nothing simultaneous about it. There isn't anything more that he could have done.

    A much younger me would've been truly pissed. Now? Meh. I'm getting more entertainment listening to the fallout.

    I did not see the play, only repeating what I heard an NFL analyst say on the radio this AM. He was talking about defender clearly had it in the air, but by the time they came to the ground, both players had possession and thus it was ruled simultaneous on the field and thus was not reviewable.

    The in the air is the crux of this. In the air is not possession. On the ground with control is. Or that is how I heard it explained.

    The players should walk out in solidarity w/ the refs.

    I saw it over and over on ESPN this morning. The two were rolling on the ground fighting for it but it still looked like the GB player had "more" possession of it than the Seattle player. The two refs there signaled TD and touchback respectively. Listening to John Clayton of ESPN this AM - he said the head ref should have conferenced with the two refs to make a call on the field - instead he went straight to replay review. It was pretty bizarre.

    What is the premise behind declaring a certain call 'not reviewable'? What is the point of a review process if it is made useless during many obvious bad calls that decide games?

    Allow the coaches flag to start a review for any reason the coach decides is worthy. The worst that could happen is burning a couple minutes a game.

    The worry is games like the previous Monday where the first half took forever. With games that are already 3 hrs long they don't want to add much more interruption to the "flow" of the game. At least that's what the talking heads keep saying. It is confusing as to what can and can't be reviewed though.

    I should have added that he came down with it too. Is this simultaneous?

    I still have not seen the play, only repeating what some NFL rules analyst said on the radio. I am a contrarian and typically have no basis on which to support my stance, you should know this by now.

    Time to switch to a real game like rugby or hockey if you don't want the flow disrupted.
