In case you’re a recluse, some serious shit is going down in the NFL right now. And at the end of last night’s Monday Night Football game of the Green Bay Packers vs The Seattle Seahawks, all that shit hit a muthafuckin fan. If you missed any part of this mayhem, this is basically what happened:
No seriously, that’s actually what happened. To put it into context, here’s all you need to know, spoken eloquently by Steve (fuckin awesome) Young.
As a sports fan, this is the worst. Baseball, volleyball, soccer, basketball, etc. – no team should ever, EVER lose a game based off a flagrantly blown call. Mind you, this isn’t the first time a bad call has cost a team a game. However, thanks to the power of technology and a rulebook, the NFL has a way of reviewing calls to make sure the right conclusion is made. From said replay, it’s pretty goddamn obvious that’s an interception, but the referee called it a touchdown. Not only that, but with all the hoopla surrounding the shitty game calling the replacement refs have done on the field, the touchdown call from last night was further reviewed by the upstairs refs who are NOT part of these replacements we’ve all been bitching about and have been around for years. So how does this happen? No, I’m actually asking, HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? Because the sporting world is in absolute shock.
Can you imagine if a pitcher threw a ball that hit the dirt outside of the strike zone but the umpire still called it a strike, thus outing the batter and winning the game?
