New Jersey wins again.

Quote:
In the wake of Monday nights debacle in Seattle, New Jersey State Senate President Stephen Sweeney plans to introduce legislation prohibiting any and all professional sporting events to be played in-state that are officiated by replacements. That would, of course, include Giants and New York Jets football games.

“This past weekend in the NFL has not only made a mockery of a great sport, but shined a very bright light on how important fully trained and professional officiating is to player safety,” said Sweeney. “We wouldn’t allow a factory or construction site to operate without fully trained supervisors on hand to ensure the safety of employees. Why should we do anything differently when the job site is a playing field?”

Sweeney feels all athletes on the field are in significant danger of injury due to the large number of bad calls, missed calls and overall ineptitude of the replacement officials. Case in point would be a helmet-to-helmet hit on Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey that resulted in him being taken off the field on a stretcher and to a local hospital after being knocked unconscious. No flag was thrown on the play.

“Whether the sport is football, soccer or baseball, when referees don’t know how to properly enforce the rules, there is a real chance for unnecessary and serious injury,” said Sweeney. “If the NFL insists on putting replacement officials on the field, putting players at risk, then the state shouldn’t be playing a part in that.”

Read that it works out to about $100k per team per season for the deal.

Which is why these guys are making these calls. The only explanation is Vegas got to them. There's no way they can actually be that bad.

It should have been called, according to real NFL refs

Now, it's often said that all's fair in love and war and Hail Mary passes into NFL end zones, but as one former official told me this morning: "You let almost anything go on Hail Marys, but not the blatant knockdowns like that.''
This flag-happy crew threw 28 of them Monday night (four were declined and 24 marked off); Rhone-Dunn or Easley should have thrown a 29th. As former NFL official and officiating supervisor Jim Daopoulos, now an NBC consultant, said this morning: "By pushing [Shields] out of the way, Tate had the ability to be in a better position to make the catch. They should have seen the obvious push. That's a call you have to make."

refs might make $150K-200K/yr. How much do those team owners make per year again? Players? I'm sure the NFL can afford to throw in a few extra grains of golden sand.

The NFL is now seeing that those guys aren't as easily replaced as they thought. Methinks they will be handsomely compensated again in the near future.

Again, I love how it directly affected Wisconsin, the champion of killing unions

Quote:

Editor's note: The following is a statement issued by the NFL regarding Golden Tate's game-winning touchdown catch at the conclusion of Monday night's game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks:

In Monday's game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks, Seattle faced a 4th-and-10 from the Green Bay 24 with eight seconds remaining in the game.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw a pass into the end zone. Several players, including Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate and Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings, jumped into the air in an attempt to catch the ball.

While the ball is in the air, Tate can be seen shoving Green Bay cornerback Sam Shields to the ground. This should have been a penalty for offensive pass interference, which would have ended the game. It was not called and is not reviewable in instant replay.

When the players hit the ground in the end zone, the officials determined that both Tate and Jennings had possession of the ball. Under the rule for simultaneous catch, the ball belongs to Tate, the offensive player. The result of the play was a touchdown.

Replay Official Howard Slavin stopped the game for an instant replay review. The aspects of the play that were reviewable included if the ball hit the ground and who had possession of the ball. In the end zone, a ruling of a simultaneous catch is reviewable. That is not the case in the field of play, only in the end zone.

Referee Wayne Elliott determined that no indisputable visual evidence existed to overturn the call on the field, and as a result, the on-field ruling of touchdown stood. The NFL Officiating Department reviewed the video today and supports the decision not to overturn the on-field ruling following the instant replay review.

The result of the game is final.

Applicable rules to the play are as follows:

A player (or players) jumping in the air has not legally gained possession of the ball until he satisfies the elements of a catch listed here.

Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3 of the NFL Rule Book defines a catch:

A forward pass is complete (by the offense) or intercepted (by the defense) if a player, who is inbounds:
(a) secures control of the ball in his hands or arms prior to the ball touching the ground; and (b) touches the ground inbounds with both feet or with any part of his body other than his hands; and(c) maintains control of the ball long enough, after (a) and (b) have been fulfilled, to enable him to perform any act common to the game (i.e., maintaining control long enough to pitch it, pass it, advance with it, or avoid or ward off an opponent, etc.).

When a player (or players) is going to the ground in the attempt to catch a pass, Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3, Item 1 states:

Player Going to the Ground. If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball throughout the process of contacting the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, the pass is incomplete. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, the pass is complete.

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.

Yes, that's why I stated 10 times that these guys have other jobs, other incomes, because they have the time to do so.

Which is why comparing their pay to other sports isn't fair.
