Quote:
Aiello confirmed Goodell "does not have authority to change the outcome of a game when it concerns judgmental errors or routine errors of omission by game officials."

There were plenty of those Monday night, but asking Goodell to step in and reverse the Packers' fate falls outside the rules.

You're news threads are getting too loose on "News".

This seems more like an expected fact than news to me. I am not one bit surprised he can't and he shouldn't be able to. Imagine the uproar if he started changing the results of games for whatever reason.

This is nothing about teams, or players or future games. That is what the NFL News should consist of and not more reasons for people to complain about what has happened.

My 2 cents

Actually this is news really because yesterday it was announced by "experts" that he does have the ability to overturn a game.
He does have that ability just not in this case which is what this news is.
Plus I thought this forum was "NFL News" not just news about games etc.

ehh... ok. Wouldn't have ever thought he would've even if he could've (but no I didn't think he could)... It would cause a ton of problems the day the commissioner ever changes the outcome of a game.

Its not just about games. It is also about players, and coaches, suspensions and what is going on in the game and with the teams. This I guess would affect the game if he had this authority. I just felt there was no doubt that he would not have that authority.

Ugh... hate the thought of that. Was listening to NFL radio and a caller called in mentioning how easy it could be for these replacements to get into fixing a game like the NBA did, since we wouldn't notice with how poor things have been as is and the fact they will be replaced and forgotten (soon I hope).

That could really do damage to the game!

While I agree this is a discussion worthy topic, I think it would be best served in NFL General. Lot more hits in terms of viewership, lot more in terms of activity, relevant topics available as a resource - this would be best served in there from what I have seen.

I don't believe it. If he really wanted to, he would. My mom always said you can achieve anything you set your mind to. Goodell obviously has no interest in the integrity of the game, else this would already be done. He's just doing this to make himself a lot more money...somehow.

...and he shouldn't have it. It sets a bad precedent.

I agree that this was a judgement call and the Commissioner should never substitute a referee's judgement with his own.

A more interesting scenario would have emerged in the Vikings-49ers game, if the 49ers had come back to win. In this case the officials clearly did not follow the rules in awarding SF an extra timeout and two successful challenges after they had used their final timeout.

My theory on that game was that the ref who called a touchdown was unsure of what to call and just said touchdown because he thought that a review could clarify the call. Because if im not mistaken those calls can only be reversed if there is question as to whether both feet were in or if it is a drop.

This is clearly a lie, obviously Goodell is all powerful and can do what he wants.

He doesn't answer to the owners or have to govern within limits.

It's also his fault that the ref contract isn't done.

Fire him now.

Just to get that out of the way

Nope when it happens in the end zone then a review of simultaneous possession is allowed.
In this case it was reviewed but they decided there was no indisputable evidence to overturn the TD call.
