    This is from the Lions board

    ''Most disgusting game EVER CALLED

    Green Bay is only 11-0 cause they are paying off refs......

    Watch the game closely people you will see what i'm talking about... ''

    Got to love their imagination.

    I bet they won't make the playoffs, so much for the mighty Lions.

    I'm still waiting on Lions fans to come back here and justify/rationalize/explain Sue's ejection.
    They were all standing up for the Lions and claiming that they never ever do dirty play. Ever!

    But like cockroaches they will scatter when the light comes on.

    That's the Lions EVERY GAME look at how many penalties they get. I was really shocked when I researched and seen. Yeah I guess all teams that play the Lions are paying off the refs too.

    sometimes the refs, umpires, or whoever else is officiating can blow something, ala the perfect game that was stolen from armando gallaraga. I get what you are saying though, if the lions fans are blaming the refs for this one they need to get their eyes checked.

    To be fair, there were some questionable calls. I don't think the pass interference when Greg Jennings was in the endzone should have been called. It looked like the defender did not hit him before the ball go there. But the calls went both ways, and the end result still would have been the same.

    Both teams had bad calls, can't blame the refs when Matthew Stafford throws 3 INT's, their team was entirely shut down most of that game, and Suh's dirty play. Can't blame any of that, or the fact they just could not stop the Packers passing machine in the second half. That is why they lost the game, not penalties. We also had a lot of penalties, but their fans forgot that.

    There were questionable calls all around, but the Lions, as a team let those penalties be their undoing. You have to have a quick memory in this game and you can't dwell on penalties.

    Shades of the Bears fans after a loss to the Packers. It's ALWAYS the refs gave GB the game.

    Except of course the last time the Bears actually won, when the Packers were called for a bazillion penalties.

    That's not necessarily true. Sometimes truly horrible and even suspicious officiating happens, but not today.

    Regardless, if you played the game better than the other team, you should win. Good teams will overcome blown calls. Great teams will be more than 1 play better and win.

    Personally, whenever I hear people whining of the refs all the time, that's the tale of a whining lil b *&%$. I find it humorous and pathetic at the same time. See the bears board for plenty of examples. I bet they blame society for all their shortcomings too.

    They even talked about it during the game. This crew throws a ton of flags. Happened again today, and to a Lions team that consistently gets hammered with penalties. Same story, different day. Nobody hears us complaining about getting a possible TD taken away because Cobb was interfered with in the endzone but no flag was thrown. There gonna call some that probably could go without, and they're gonna miss some. Happens every single game.

    Well, you don't have to even touch the receiver to draw a flag. If you don't turn around to make a play on the ball it is face guarding, which is illegal. You can't face the WR the whole time, watching him, then jump in his face and block the ball with your back.

    Meh... Good calls, bad calls... it's just a part of the game. Crying about it doesn't help.
    Once the ref calls the penalty, it's done.

    Never blame the refs for a loss. Calls always go both way.

    I'm pretty sure that face guarding is 100% legal as long as you don't make contact.

    lol see.. as I said, the Vikings fans are complaining about the refs and they didn't even play today!

    They actually think it's a conspiracy.. as if the mysterious tossing of Pat Lee wouldn't rebut that argument..
