NFL Releases Statement on Monday Night's Game

UNDATED (WHBL) - The N-F-L said today it would not reverse Monday night’s controversial 14-12 win by the Seattle Seahawks over the Green Bay Packers. In a statement, the league did indicate that Seattle receiver Golden Tate should have been called for offensive pass interference when he pushed Packers’ corner Sam Shields on the final play. That would have ended the game with Green Bay winning 12-7. But pass interference is not reviewable by instant replay. So the league upheld the final part of the play, what it called a “simultaneous catch” by Tate and Packers safety M-D Jennings. The league said both players had the ball when they hit the ground in the end zone, and therefore the ball is awarded to the offensive team. And after a review by replay official, the referee determined there was no indisputable video evidence to overturn the call. The Packers argued that Jennings had clear possession, clutching the ball to his stomach while Tate landed with only his arms around the ball. Packers’ guard Josh Sitton said early this afternoon that he did not buy the N-F-L’s explanation – and he said the league needs to “admit and apologize before we can get over it.” Sitton was among those writing obscenity-laced criticisms of the league and the officials on Twitter. He said he has no clue if he’ll be fined for it, but said he shouldn't be fined for speaking the truth. Sitton also said the N-F-L owners should be blamed for the officiating problems and said, “They need to get the situation fixed.”
