This call was only blown because it happened to Greenbay. Bet you dollars to donut, if it was the other wat around no one would be making this much fuss.

It does say a lot about social media.

One of the most ignorant statements I've read here in weeks

I am not pissed about the calls by the replacement refs. They are what they are.....second rate and that is what we shoudl expect to get....second rate performance.

However, I am pissed that the Instant Replay Ref blew this. He is NOT a replacement ref and should have gotten it right.

There's a difference between being contrarian and being dumb.

NFL disagrees with you.

No the NFL conceded the no call on Pass Interference cost GB the game not the catch rule NFL said that by rule it was correct.

Why can't anyone realize that possesion isn't awarded in mid air. Tate Had his hands on the ball and to his chest just as Jennings did. In fact Tates hand sperated Jennings chest from the ball, and the Replay shows that Tate pulled the ball AND Jennings down with him. Jennings had to fall akwardly just to maintain his grip on the ball because Tate had it to. The refs made the right call as improbable as it seems. The Key factor is when possesion is awarded- WHen that time came they both had the ball.

Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3, Item 5 states:

Simultaneous Catch. If a pass is caught simultaneously by two eligible opponents, and both players retain it, the ball belongs to the passers. It is not a simultaneous catch if a player gains control first and an opponent subsequently gains joint control. If the ball is muffed after simultaneous touching by two such players, all the players of the passing team become eligible to catch the loose ball.

Possession is irrelvant. Jennings jumped in the air and got both hands on the ball first, giving him control. Under the rule that isn't a simultaneous catch.

ya...good argument...until you see that after Jennings originally caught the ball, Tate got his hands on it too and got his feet on the ground first...now who has possession?

Seahwak fans and/or Green Bay haters cannot be expected to comprehend facts and should not be expected to remove the glasses that cloud objective views.

The 4th quarter was riddled with horrible calls that a Pop Warner kid could have made correctly, and the most egregious of which wasn't the final call of the game. It was the PI call on Shields on that 3rd and 17 pass.
