    The league's decision to uphold the obvious wrong call is nothing more than them puffing out their chests and and showing the world how all mighty powerful and arrogent they are..they need to be taken down to their knees and here's how to do it 1) the Seahawk oranization should do the classy thing and go to the commisioner of the league and tell him they will not accept a win like this...they know damn well, as everyone else does, the call was wrong 2) the players need to strike if the regular refs are not brought back immidiately....then we'd actually see just how tough the league is....

    I'm curious. Given the ownership structure of the Packers, there are probably a whole lot of angry owners, right? Wikipedia says the team is run by a president elected by the board of governors. The official team site says that that is this guy: Mark Murphy. What would happen if a large number of these Packers owners contacted him, telling him that the team's number one priority should be to put leverage on Goodell and the other owners to end the labor dispute with the referees? That would have to do something, right? Media attention, if nothing else. I think you should try it.

    What was Monday night?
    Nobody remembers Pete Rose?
    If the NFL officialy declares not to overturn this games final call after all the outrage, including the president of the United States of America.
    Then whats to say people have not/ are not baught.
    These same refs will be right back with no repurcutions to speek of.
    They just have to make a trip to Vegas and cash in first.
    Who's watching the watcher's, not the NFL, the money train has gotten so big that the Packers can't even walk out in disgust.
    To bad it's not the 60's in Vegas right now, there would be a few new holes in the sand.

    Replacement refs getting the call wrong on the field, and then replay officials blowing the call were bad enough, but when the league supposedly watched the same replays everyone else has seen and then backed the call made by the refs, this makes two things crystal clear...team owners are only interested in revenue, and league officials do whatever team owners want them to do...team owners and league officials believe they hold all the cards here, when in reality, the players and the fans do...without either there's no reason to have team owners...I guarantee if the players threatened to boycot the league/owners because of the poor refs (with the end of the Packers/Seahawks game being the straw that broke the camel's back), the owners would cave....it would take them all about a millisecond to realize no games equals massive dollar signs going down the drain....they unfortunatley understand only one thing....money....therefore the players should hit 'em where it hurts...
