    "Did the refs cause Rodgers to get sacked 8 times?"

    No, but that's not their job. It's GB's O-lines job. The REFS job is to protect the players and make the right calls. Forget the debate over simultaneous control or whatever, there is an obvious offensive PI that actually affected 2 GB players that was missed. They blew it, Seattle wins and while I'm not a 'Hawk fan, I love Pete Carroll's comment, "Game over, we win." End of Story.

    Had they scored more points this would not be an issue.

    The replacement officials are nice human beings, but they are in the wrong job. No, I don't want to put on the shirt and whistle for a quarter, but if I did the criticism that comes my way for being a pretender would be valid. If an unqualified mechanic/lawyer/surgeon makes an obvious mistake they can't use the excuse that they are a replacement and shouldn't be held to the usual standards.

    Everyone hates the officials. No matter how you call the game, 50% of the fans are convinced you're wrong. (And sometimes you really are wrong but you just go on, trying to do your best.)

    Just try and have a game without officials and see how far the "honor system" gets you in athletic contests. I'd love to see those complaining the loudest put on the shirt, shoes and whistle for a quarter. Now that would be downright hilarious!!!

    They have to. If they didn't uphold the incorrect call they would invalidate their decision to use incompetent officials. Making the wrong call is one thing, but seeing the bad call on replay and doing nothing is unacceptable.

    @ TXBYUfan,
    Yeah just like SBXL were worthlesburger was down on the one yard line and the ref called it a TD. Every one could see it was not so but no one else complained. An every one told Seattle fans to shut up. I say good for the bad call!

    The NFL is becoming blinded by their own arrogance. EVERYONE saw that Green Bay indisputably caught that pass. Shame on the NFL.

    I love my Hawks! It is about time the refs give us a bad call in our favor!
