It happened. Watch the tape. Ask the coach. The league officials have botched many procedural items this year. All of them have been horrible, the striped shirts, the replay booth officials, and the clock officials. Equally awful.

Can't imagine you guys were out trick or treating and couldn't find the time to express your outrage then. You're making a very broad statement, while offering little supporting evidence.
People just can't be taken seriously when they write in about "a million bad calls" in a league that plays four games per weekend / seven weeks per year

It happened exactly as described, Valmas. The entire crew brain farted and took away an 8 yard play. Al wrote about it in his game recap that is sent to donors. It’s not why we lost to Yale but it gets to the poor quality of officials in our league. And if you require more examples, watch the last 2 minutes of the Brown game and the officials’ problems with the clock. The league needs better training and some accountability.

Still believe these are isolated cases being cited, not indicative of a systemic problem. The case some of you are trying to make would be more palpable if you'd stay away from the hyperbole about one million bad calls. Human beings will forever be making some mistakes; whether they're coaching; playing or administering the game. Brady / Belichek / Kraft / Goodell / NFL Officials (Supposedly the best; most highly compensated; and most thoroughly trained) ALL screw up at times in matters both large and small. The imperfections make the game even more appealing; and the memories of games past more
enduring, still.

Espn announcers even mentioned it on air. Crazy thing was the down marker was still in place at correct place, official refused to even consider why it was there
