    You live with women? Jeepers. That explains you picking on me. I know you are kidding. I can take it.

    There are and no, it will not help. I love football but it is not supposed to be a stress factory. Enjoy it for what it is. Winning is always more fun of course but don't we always come back every year regardless?

    ...and da Bears are at 1-2 because they aren't any better.

    The Pack is one game away from 1st place Phil. What does that say about the rest of the NFC North???

    GO PACK!

    I concur with that, Bucfan219.

    However, without catering to conspiracy theories and some of the more outlandish accusations I have read in this thread, I was pi$$ed right off by the officiating in that game.

    I also watched Tampa get the shaft by the zebras, however I felt that the Pack got the worse end of the stick. This may be because I am a Pack fan and wanted to see them win. However to make it clear how I am sure many of Green Bay's fans felt, when the intentional grounding call was originally flagged I thought that the zebras were calling another bogus penalty on Kampman for roughing the passer! It took a few minutes before I realized it was on Griese for intentional grounding (which was, for whatever reason, dismissed). :roll: I will not rehash what many of us thought about the infamous fumble. That idiot zebra could have very well cost the Pack the game. Who hires these morons, anyways???

    I really wish that game could have been played out properly without a bunch of flag-happy zebras running around like a flock of chickens with their heads cut off and their brains leaking out their collective arse.

    All I know is the Pack's performance vs. Tampa has made me feel a whole lot better about them facing Carolina this week, providing of course that we get a whole new officiating crew. :evil:

    GO PACK!

    I can't blame you. I was furious at the officials myself, and even though we were helped by the blown calls on the Griese fumble and the intentional grounding play, those plays just show off the ineptitude of the officials all the more, magnifying my disappointment over the calls that affected my team.
    The Bucs have had games where I've worn your shoes.
    I know what it's like.

    The blown call on the fumble was a horrible call, and since it was a change-of-possession play, I'll suggest that your assessment is fair even though you're a Packerfan.
    :)
    I do think that the Carroll interception was accounted for by defensive pass interference, but that's much more a judgment call than the Griese fumble. It's easier to understand the officials' ruling on the interception than on the fumble-that-wasn't.

    That's what the game announcers thought, too, at first. If I'd had the sound on the television set turned down then roughing the passer would not have crossed my mind. I was expecting intentional grounding, and I can't explain to you why that call was waved off.
    Maybe I should watch it again to see if a Buc receiver was within 30 yards of where the ball was thrown. ;)

    Agreed.
    Winning is nice, but I'm interested in who's the better team minus referee meddling.

    Their defensive line is pretty strong even without Jenkins. I hope you guys are able to run against them. If not, you're likely to struggle with turnovers in the passing game again.
    I think that the Bucs have a better secondary than do the Panthers, but the Panthers bring more of the type of pressure that results in QB sacks.
    Hopefully Favre will be on top of his game.

    Control the clock on the Panthers and you've got a shot.
    Best of luck.
