I can't be the only one who LOVED the officiating!

I can't be the only one who LOVED the officiating!

No PI on Michael Crabtree in the end zone.
No offensive PI called on Jordy Nelson pushing off on his TD.
Multiple plays with defensive holding by GB not called.
The non holding call on McDonald's sack.
Multiple non holding calls on Aldon and Justin Smith (especially on QB roll outs and RB toss plays).

One of the worst officiated games I've ever watched.

Apart from a few ''missed'' calls for both teams i was very pleased that they let them actually play ball!

I believe the game was officiated ok. People here complain about non calls for us, but never say anything when we aren't called. There was a PI and a holding on passes that coulda been called on us but weren't. I agree Crabs was mugged in the endzone on the potential TD, but they consistently let players play. They also called a holding on GB on a play to Crabs that was a good call. Now if they didn't call that one, then called us on some ticky tack PI s**t, then I'd be mad. I think fans are starting to buy into the refs throwing flags every time a receiver is touched, that is, unless it is one of our DBs doing the touching.

The refs consistently let the game go on and I'm perfectly ok with that. If we lost I wouldn't be blaming refs. I'd blame our play calling in the red zone and our inability to score TDs unless the other team does.

That is it ban him. There is no place in niner talk for common sense. What the hell is wrong with you.
I think it was called ok overall, but the non-call on McDonald being held was huge. They scored a touchdown on that drive, and a 10 yard penalty puts them in 4'th and 12 on the 40 yard line, which likely would've been a punt. The second drive Crabtree was mugged in the end zone pretty bad too. Other than that, there didn't seem to anything too egregious, but those 2 plays are an 11 point swing.

Yep.

Do you people that like to use the phrase "let guys play" like when they let guys play like this?





I know someone that didn't...


That is NOT a hold by rule. On a return the only way it's a hold is if the player being blocked goes to the ground. That's why they kept lifting him up off the ground on that play, as you can see in the provided picture, to ensure he didn't go to the ground.

However there was a hold, witnessed in the 2nd picture down, so the point is moot. The play should have been called back.

Nooooo let's not re-live those memories. 'Letting them play' is whack. It sounds noble and old school until there's a bad hold that significantly alters the direction of the game. No ticky tack fouls is okay, but call the penalties when they occur. That's the rules. Otherwise let's just crown SEA the champs when they completely shut down passing offenses by holding and mugging WRs.
Refs should let the teams know how the game will be called beforehand so the teams don't have to waste drives finding out.

Good list.

Can someone come up with a list for no calls on both sides? I think we'll see that the Pack got away with it more than us. And most of our non calls were on scoring plays. The game shouldnt have been as close as it was.

I dont like tricky-tacky calls as must as the next fan or player. But when its so damn blatant, call the damn thing! This is where im coming from. The last SB is still fresh, 5yrds from getting #6 is still fresh in my mind and keeps getting replayed in my mind every time the Kap & co. line in the end zone 5yrds out in a game (Willis and the purple confetti). And this season has not eased or put those demons to rest with the end zone.

Players/athletes with superior skill set/proper technique will always come through in the heat of the moment during a event and especially when its all on the line in the final play. I know we have the better coaching staff for these testing moments. We have the better players for these winner takes all plays.

Just get a officiating crew that will see and call a blatant f**king penalty when he sees one no matter what game it is. grrrr.
weakhawks get away with so much more

if you needed a reminder of why we lost the super bowl just watch first and goal from the five yesterday on the first drive
The officiating in the NFL is awful at best. Based on our game I am not very enthused by the possible meaning. I'd like to see what the total number of flags thrown in the 1st round were compared to the regular season norm.
Zoner logic; complain about Seahawks mugging out DBs, praise refs for letting it happen in the playoffs. Had we lost people would be crying bloody murder. Call the game the same, pre-season, reg season, and most importantly PLAYOFFS.
