  • League explains Leavy’s replay ruling

    Longtime reader, first time writer... or something like that.
    Just wanted to share the recent explanation that the league had to offer for Leavy's replay ruling.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...replay-ruling/

    Turns out we are all blind and Leavy's eyes work better than the replay system....
    As first a football fan, than a Giants fan I can say that I am just disgusted by the explanation issued for this ruling.

    Regardless of what the bull**** call was, it shouldn't have been overruled on the field as packers ball. this means that the packers would have had to supply the burden of proof and since it was "indisputable" according to leavy the giants should have gotten possesion,

      League translation: We told Leavy/other refs to deliver us a Rodgers vs. Brady Superbowl

        Are you ****ing kidding me? **** you Goodell, you POS.


        Look at the comments gentlemen. After all the BS this team has faced we finally have an obvious occurrence of conspiracy to set certain profitable matchups for the NFL.

        If they had simply admitted their error, we would have moved on. As it stands, I'm ****ing PO'd, and feel like something has to be done.

          Well I'm glad the league cleared that up for all of us.

          /facepalm

          They're still wrong. Everybody in America, from San Fransisco to Green Bay to New York, EVERYBODY knew that was a fumble. Everybody except Bill Leavy that is.

          But I don't buy the argument that this was a deliberate attempt to do Green Bay any favors. Leavy's crew was terrible all season long regardless of who was playing. It's just a God awful crew that should have never been assigned to a playoff game to begin with. Hopefully next season they won't be assigned to any regular season games either. That way they won't be eligible for postseason work.

              agree with this. clearly a bad call but i don't believe it's a conspiracy. more along the lines of the nfl trying to protect their refs, happens in other sports too. governing bodies never want to admit when their employees have made a mistake. seems to extend into government somewhat as well

                maybe the Fix will be on our side this weekend!!!!!! Giants/Pats rematch is probably the most profitable matchup left! Unless they go the Harbaugh Bowl route..-_-

                Kidding. screw the refs..don't need their help.

                  Do you honestly think that the NFL a multi billion dollar corporation would try to fix games? Did you not see what congress did to baseball with the whole steroids fiasco? What do you think they would do to the NFL if a game fixing scandal by the league was uncovered? I'm sorry but I just can not beleive that the NFL would risk the demise of their entire business model just to get a favorable matchup in the Superbowl...

                      If there was nothing wrong with the call, why would the league have to issue a statement or explanation??...STFU Goodell......

                        the league would have better cred just banning the guy from any and all nfl events, rather than back him up. its a pr thing, someone somewhere thought they needed to show confidence in the officials, and basically call the fans a gang of blind idiots. talk about pr backfire. very unfortunate.


                        Gonna miss the big guy. rofl.

                          It doesn't necessarily have to come from the NFL. The game was played in GB...a team owned by the fans...sorta.

                          Anyway, it coulda been the mayor, the governor, some rich eccentric billionaire who makes a living making cheese...

                          If the ref is smart he will not deposit the money in a bank account any time soon.

                            Really? You're going to implicate the fans in your conspiracy theory now? Really?? The Governor too, hell, it must be one of the Koch brothers unethical campaign contributions, right?

                            Leavy stunk it up. He's done so every week since August. There's no conspiracy, just an officiating crew that has proven week after week to be terrible at their jobs and shouldn't have been assigned the game in the first place.

                              Yes I could believe corruption could occur when there is literly a millions of dollars involved. If you think not then you're the nieve one.

                              There were 2 other calls in that game that could have been crucial that no ones talking about.

                              Both times when Giants were clinging to a lead in second half. The hold on Snee which put the Giants back on the 10 yd line was one of the best blocks he's made all year. Result punt away GB gets excellent field position to tie game. Giants Hold

                              2nd time game close 2nd half early 4th 3rd & 3 Giant 27 hand off to DJ Ware who body crosses the 1st down marking. One side judge comes in & marks the ball back 1 1/2 yards forcing Giants to punt again.

                              Any of those 3 plays above could have turned the game in GB favor yes they were bouight off & now probaly wont get paid since the Giants prevailded anyway. Well thats one way to look at the conspiracy theory anyway.
