and having the real refs back would have fixed that?

Probably.

it was a gross miscall

about the only thing Tate had possession of was Jennings' torso

Watching the replay, Jennings gets the ball first, but can't bring it in because Tate has an arm between Jennings and the ball. Then, something causes Jennings to bend forward. That something is Tate pulling the ball to himself. As their feet hit the ground, they both have possession.

No, that something is Tate pulling Jennings' arm.

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?

The epic irony of this statement is that the replacement refs wouldnt know the rule and would probably spend an hour in a giant circle-jerk trying to figure out what the fug to do. Now that would have been worth a season of shitty officiating just to see.

Well, if you're looking for a moment just like that, the refs leaving along with the players even though there still needed to be a PAT should suffice. I knew the final call would instantly create some controversy, but the refs put the icing on the cake by leaving the field even though the game wasn't over. I hope people don't forget about this lol.

Didnt watch the game, slept through it. Saw the highlights, but how many games can we say last year the real refs screwed us over wit some stupid calls.

Man...some of you people on here are retarded. If you really think Tate had it and call was right you are blinder than poo. No offense.

These replacements do seem to be having a harder time getting the calls right than the regular refs, not to say there weren't numerous bad calls last year too.

This league makes more than enough money that they should be able to meet the refs demands. Are the demands really that unreasonable to justify all this grief?

It goes beyond money. The refs don't want any sort of system of accountability. The NFL doesn't want to wait til the year is over to be able to hold a referee accountable for the sort of BS calls we've been seeing since long before the replacements took over. The NFL also wants to have a secondary group of officials so they're not so dependent on the same group of guys every time but the good ol' boys club doesn't want to let anyone else in.

Even beyond the other things, just strictly talking about the money side of it, the NFL is a business. There's no such thing as "they have enough money to just cave in to the employee's demands so they should just do it". It sets a bad precedent.
