Last night in Seattle, the Detroit Lions lost the game because the referees probably blew a call.

Seattle's Cam Chancellor made an absolutely brilliant play to cause a fumble on the one-yard line, thereby preventing Detroit from scoring the game-winning touchdown. The ball went into the end zone. Then another Seahawks player - K.J. Wright - knocked the ball out of the back of the end zone.

This is one of those rare instances in sports where a referee has to determine the intent of a player. If Wright purposely knocked the ball out of the end zone, it's a penalty and Detroit gets the ball at the spot of the fumble (Seattle's one-yard line). If there's no intent, Seattle gets the ball on their 20-yard line.

The referee ruled there was no intent. Seattle was able to run the clock out, and they won the game.

But the replay showed differently. Wright clearly swatted at the ball with his left hand. But the referees aren't allowed to use replays to call or correct penalties. They can only go by what they see on the field. And since none of the referees saw Wright swat the ball, nobody called a penalty.

Football fans (and the NFL Rules Committee) will be talking about this one for a long time...

My Jets are 3-1. 2nd in the AFC.
I'm happy for now.

The oddsmakers in Vegas need to hold on to some form of control.

A 13 yard punt? You've got to be kidding me. I know he's the backup punter, but a 13 fucking yard fucking punt? He shanked the shit out of that one.

We're 2-4 now. Maybe, there's hope? We have the Colts Sunday.

I watched part of their game yesterday. They looked really good.

They've been looking for a franchise quarterback for a long time. Derek Carr may be the guy.

Just cross your fingers, toes and whatever else you can cross. Hope he doesn't get hurt...

It's a good thing the Colts ran out of time yesterday, or we would have lost.

The Raiders are rising as the 49ers are crumbling. It's beginning to sound more and more like the Raiders are going to end up in Carson sharing a stadium with the Chargers. I guess it's either that or the Rams getting their own stadium in LA. I can't see LA going from zero teams to three. Either way, I don't think the Raiders will stay in Oakland long term. Mark Davis is a pauper compared to some other NFL owners. He needs a city to pony up some big money to build a stadium and I doubt Oakland will/can do it. OR he needs to sell to some mega rich ownership group. Only way they stay imo.

That's exactly how I feel about York. What an egotistical little rich boy dweeb. Couldn't handle Harbaugh's personality so he runs one of the best coaches in football out of town.

OK, here's some NFL news that I find amusing. The Lions fired their offensive coordinator and their offensive line coaches today after their terrible start this season. Do you want to know the name of the new Offensive Coordinator? Sure you do.

Jim Bob Cooter! :mrgreen:

If both the Raiders and Chargers end up in LA the raiders will be moved to the NFC West and the Seattle Seahawks will move back to the AFC west... :shock:

That would be interesting with the Raiders and 49ers in the same division.
