    Vinny T was a good yard from the goal line.

    I saw that game between the Hawks and Jets and it stand as one of the worst refereeing calls of all time. But I think most, not all Seattle fans, have gotten over it just as most, not all Seattle fans have gotten over the Superbowl game against Pittsburgh.

    The results of the Seattle/Jets game was the following year instance replay was used for the first time.

    Outrage is reserved for the teams that the media cares about. It's a big deal if the Packers, Steelers, Cowboys, or Patriots get jobbed, because it hardly ever happens.

    Wow, I can't believe that you didn't know about the memo the NFL commissioner wrote to all referees back in the late 90s.

    I have a copy of it that I got from a sports memorabilia place. Here it is:


    Office Of The National Football League Commissioner

    June 1, 1998

    Effectively immediately, all National Football League referees who are officiating Seattle Seahawks games should do everything in their power to screw over the Seattle Seahawks players, coaches, and fans.

    The following practices against the Seattle Seahawks are encouraged:

    1. "Ticky-tack" holding penalties
    2. Routine rejection of all Seattle Seahawk replay reviews
    3. Generous football placement for all Seattle Seahawk opponents, to ensure opponent first downs.
    4. Adoption of a "close enough" touchdown criteria when opponents have the football near the Seahawks goal line.


    Sincerely,
    Paul Tagliabue

    It's because the Seahawks suck shit and haven't had a good player since Steve Largent.

    Deal with it. :thup:
