Everyone by now has witnessed the terrible call by the referee in the Packers vs. Seahawks game last night, but I thought I'd throw in my two cents and show you the video one more time.  Clearly the worst part of the play is the push right??? That had to be the most obvious penalty of the year so far, and maybe the worst I've ever seen in my days.  Yea, Yea I know they are suppose to let them play it out to an extent on hail marry passes, but damn bro that was so obvious it had to be called.  Second, Packers DB Jennings clearly had the ball intercepted, but that is way easier to mess up in my opinion than the obvious PI call.  Both of the players had hands on the ball and the rulebook says that ties go to the offense just like in baseball.  Clearly the dumb-ass ref had no idea what to call so he just gave it to the offense like the rulebook says. Not to mention the fact that the play was reviewed and screwed up a second time by the officials up stairs who could have easily overturned the play (who aren't replacement officials.) Can't blame the guy for being an idiot, the NFL realized that when they hired him and the rest of the scrub replacement officials.   Get the damn real refs back so we can enjoy a football game for god sakes.  Video below if you haven't seen it yet.
