Well, at least it allowed the Packers to get an extra 7 points!

I'm dying to know who this prominent and prophetic former Giant is, and put my money on the BLT without bacon?

The fumble was a pretty crappy call and I thought that the roughing the passer was weak as well. That being said, it's all subjective and as a Vikings fan rooting against the Pack I am biased. Any time there is information that is subjective it can interpreted differently by everyone, and as such there can be no "facts" about it.

Thanks for breaking it here first!
No, the NFL will make an apology to the Giants and the apology will be permitted to be released, as not required to be held in confidence between the Giants and the NFL.

Ahhh, I see.

I hope the Giants beat the Pats again in the Super Bowl, as the Mayan calendar I have shows this to be the last Super Bowl ever.

So the players aren't required to double pinky swear to keep it a secret?

I'm as big of a Packer fan as there is, and I thought they were weak calls as well.

I used to work out with a former catcher from the Boston Red Sox and he never said anything about orders to NFL officials to fix the Packers game.

Please don't ask me who he was, but I will tell you he never said anything about a public apology either.

Default Re: Packer fan thoughts

So has anybody sniffed anything of a public apology - or even a minimal apology to the Giants? I went searching the web to find something, and there is nothing of any sort or nature out there.

I have said for years that games are fixed and officiating is often in cahoots. Players on both teams appear to do things that don't make any sense, except that they are trying to make a certain team successful and they're paid to help out in that.

Then I realized something after playing referee a few time...
...Men are fallible. Sometimes, their failures are plainly evident. Sometimes, they are not. Usually, it isn't because they are trying to biased in any way, it is because what they see can be perceived differently from different angles.

We the two calls discussed here bad in my opinion? Yes! Is it possible that they saw something that made them make such calls? Yes! For example, Rodgers head and neck took quite a jolt on that hit - although, it was because he was knocked into someone, and not because he was intentionally hit that way. If all you focused on was Rodges, and the way he was bounced around, it could have looked like he was hit intentionally.

Sometimes, you cannot see the forest for the trees - too focused on one thing, that you miss the big picture.

Show me any sport, any game, and you will find bad calls and missed calls by refs. Sometimes glaring, for they have an impact on score. Sometimes, minor.

Bottom line? Packers played poorly, Giants played well, refs were bad. Giants won. Packers lost.

Peace of the Lord be with you.

Why are any of you debating this. MoreBeer has already told you it's not a theory, it is fact. That should be the end of it.
