Yes, the replacement refs suck. I don't want to pile on them though, because they are coming from the lower level college game to the NFL. The rules are slightly different and the game is faster. I don't blame them for being confused and making mistakes, but we're going to have to deal with it until the NFL brings back the real officials. I actually feel sorry for the replacement refs, because I'm sure they didn't ask to be thrown into that situation.

As for the actual play last night. The Green Bay defender allowed the "simultaneous possession" rule to be called into play by trying to catch it. I feel like they deserve to lose for that stupidity alone. Never try to get an INT on a hail Mary play. Swat the ball to to ground. The only way Tate even got his hands on the ball was because the defender tried to catch it.

I don't think he could have batted it down, he outjumped the receiver and grabbed the ball over top of him. Batting it down would have put it right in his hands. In the clips I watched, the Seattle receiver never had possession oof the ball when they came down.

Watching the NFL is about like looking at a train wreck. You know it's not right but can't turn away. While I feel a little bad for our friend Barry I did get a small amount of enjoyment that it was the Packers. Of all the calls they got wrong of course they had to get the Greg Jennings TD call reverse right. That one cost me a fantasy football game.

I've been trying to keep up with this thread but it's been a little busy. DW and I are a little pre-occupied getting ready for our adults only trip to Jamaica!

‘Morning all…

I tend to get behind on the weekends and especially this time of year, but yesterday was just supremely frustrating as difficult days go. I’d rant about it, but ya’ know…
It just would help a dang bit so never mind…

I think instead I’ll try to rummage around here for a bit. Generally one of y’all will make me laugh and that’s a good thing.

Good morning fellow dads, hope all is good. Got nothing new to report, got a groupon for cheap movie tix which will come in handy this Friday and next for hotel Transylvania and Frankenweenie , if I didn't find that I'd easily be paying double for movie tix. I'll wave to norm and his family when they passes me as we are watching Frankenweenie

So I was just checking on my flight that I had booked for the Convention and found out when I checked that they had changed the flight departure time on the flight down and didn't bother to tell me. Now I won't be getting in until 6:30p rather than 5p.

Do you think I might be able to contact United and request my flight be changed to an earlier flight since they changed my flight time? Has anyone ever been successful in changing to an earlier flight when their original flight time was made for a later time?

I have with a couple of different carriers. Never tried United though.

Meeting still stinks. Another 2 days of this garbage.

Was able to watch some of the game last night, but went to bed before end of game. Personally, I liked the hat under Dallas WR foot when never went out of bounds. Just too comical.

Saw that groupon, but we don't have those theatres here. I guess it's full price for me. Kids can't wait for Hotel Transylvania. Have a fun watching the movies.
