I didn't watch the game, but I've watched the replay over and over again and I think the refs got it right. Your thoughts?

It looked to me like it was GB ball, the angle they had on the replay sucked if you ask me. I can see how they wouldnt have enough to reverse it once they got to the ground you couldnt tell who had possesion. Think there where 4 straight flags on the last drive, I really think the replacement ref's are intimidated, they have made some garbage calls but they all seem to end up helping whatever team is at home

The refs got it wrong.
The offensive pass interference was first and foremost.
The ball was intercepted. There was no simultaneous possession.

I didnt care who won last night and I'd probably agree that GB got the shaft just like my Ravens got it in week 2. Someone will get it next week and so on until the real refs come back. Amazing that the NFL cares so little about the fan base which can only be classified as RABID!!

I agree on all three counts. The ref that had the best angle started to wave it off. Then the second ref came in after the players were on the ground and signaled a touchdown. The second ref could not have possibly seen that the GB defensive back clearly had the ball all the way to the ground. Whereas the first ref from his angle should have had a clear view of the play.

Pretty sad day in pro football when the refs stink this bad.

Well, maybe my opinion was a little skewed since I don't like the Packers. The only team that I hate worse is New Orleans. So glad they are 0-3.

OK, here's the deal. Yes, it was pass interference and yes, the ball was intercepted by the Packers. But replay can't overturn either of those, who controls possession on a catch or missed penalty. Both are judgement calls made on the field during play.

So, to answer your question, the refs on the field got it wrong. The replay refs in the booth made the only decision they could make. That's why the league this morning failed to change the call or the outcome of the game.

The refs (which everyone knew were replacement refs) are part of the game. Packers should've never been in that position if they were good enough to win on the road.

Deal with it. It's part of the game. Life's not fair, taxes aren't fair, football isn't fair.

Amen. The ruling from BBO stands, no replay needed.
