It was one play in a football game, not a political scandal.

I agree with that but...

The league did indicate in a statement the day after the game that Tate should have been flagged for offensive pass interference. Yet Elliott said of the training the replacements received, "It was brought up that you don't really call interference on a Hail Mary. ... You just let it go."

According to the league, not calling it was the right call. Confused

That reaffirms my belief that pass interference is never called, on either side, during a hailmary situation. I actually like that, personally. When the the game is on the line, I think either player should fight for the ball. Its clearly not a normal pass play situation, barring a blatantly obvious tackling of a receiver. Push offs are fine as it truly does happen as players try and get position in the endzone.

U disagree, the rules on the last play of the game should be the rules on the first play.

The bottom line is that Jennings made a selfish play going for the INT instead of just knocking the ball down. The result was that the game came down to a ref's decision, and the call didn't go the Packers' way.

It's time for everyone to stop dwelling on this one play and move on.


^^^^^THIS^^^^^

You should have been taught from Day 1 to always knock the ball straight down. Its called common sense.

Yeah every once in a while if u try to knock it down it gets caught by the offense(see Det vs Ten) but its rare.

It was a selfish play and they got burned because of it.

I actually watched it live(on tv) and as soon as i saw Tates hand on the ball i was screaming for the refs to call simultaneous possession...man did my wish come true Laughing

It was awesome!!!!! Just glad for once it wasnt the Vikes that got their hopes crushed.

Yea I also remember Mike Tirico yelling something along the lines of Tate makes the catch followed by simultaneous catch....

My first thought was something along the same line as yours "Call a TD tie goes to WR, his hands on the ball!"

Seemed to me to be a bang bang play and the ref that called TD saw the whole play, while the back judge saw just that their backs then ran up to make a conformation.

Glad it worked out for the Purple though!!!
