These refs have got to go

Giving into unions is why this country sucks and you want the NFL to give into a union that couldn't do their jobs well enough to begin with and had pet teams (steelers always getting a yard extra on the spot)

Still willing to watch the entire season with them.

Union membership is at an all-time low, so your theory is invalid.

Well, if one team doesn't show up to a game, do they make one team play out the full game by themselves or do they just disqualify the other team for not showing up? I know an offense can run a play with less than 11 defenders on the field, but I've never seen a situation where a defense sends nobody onto the field. I'm just curious what would happen if a team refuses to continue to play. Anybody know what the rule is on this?

I guess whether they would have been disqualified or not wouldn't have mattered because they couldn't win. They should have stood up to the dictator that is Goodell and the owners. It might have been the only time where we see a field goal, where there was no defense against it. It would have been an epic message, but they missed it!

It ruins the game as a whole no way to be happy about this.

Well, I don't care that much because its not my team. But its definitely not a pleasant way to end a game.

Now if it had happened to Atlanta, New Orleans or Dallas, then it would be a lot of fun. :)

If I was the owner of a team, I sure as hell wouldn't want my coach to make that decision for me. If I want to suddenly boycott (even for one game that was already lost) the ref's ruling to send a message to Roger Goodell and the NFL, I sure as hell would want to be the one making that call. I don't think it would have been smart for McCarthy to make that decision himself. He did a good job keeping his cool.

1. League better hope GB doesn't miss a playoff seed by one game or Seattle doesn't get one by one game.

2. No one has mentioned the obvious here....BAT THE BALL DOWN. This is why they preach that, for this very scenario.

maybe because manufacturing jobs are almost nonexistent in America..

..and no, I don't have any numbers to prove that, just a thought.

So you're cool with Julio Jones getting laid out and having to go to the hospital like Heyward-Bey and no flag being thrown? The Steelers v. Raiders game was a fiasco when considering how the NFL has been obsessed about player safety and it's pretty clear these refs have lesser abilities to judge.

What the Packer's owner is going to do to McCarthy? If he fired him, he would have another job within seconds. You have to stand for what's right, and not going back out there would have been the right thing to do if your McCarthy.

So the fact that the non union refs are doing a much worse job than the union refs is an example of why unions are bad?
