    After watching the Seahawks - Packers game is that the worst call ever made in sports?

    Was it the right call?

    I do not know if it is the worst call ever, but it is certainly one of the worst calls that I have ever seen.  Perhaps it seems worse because so many of the games have had terrible officiating.  It was definately the wrong call and the Packers should have won that game and I mean no disrespect towards Seattle, I was nuetral on the game.  It is a bad thing when the officials are the big story in every game.

      I think that the DB should have batted the ball away, but that call was so off. I could see making the wrong call w/o replay but to look at it and still make that call is terrible.

    I do not think so.  Heck the NFL Network just explained how the play was called correctly.  I have never seen an ending like that before.....waiting for the review was very intense....glad I am not a Seahawk or Packer fan.

      But clearly that was a bad call. I understand that in case both catch the ball at the same time tie goes to the WR, but the ball was clearly intercepted. Once again defenders bat the ball away and this will not happen to you.

    Not the worst call. I'd go with the University of Colorado getting a fifth down to win a game in 1990.

    The worst officiating in sports history occurred 40 years ago when the U.S.S.R. beat the U.S.A. in basketball in the Olympics. Also almost 40 years ago the Immaculate Reception occurred when Franco Harris picked up the deflected pass just before it hit the ground and he ran it into the end zone for a Steeler win over the Raiders in the playoffs. The replay was shown during the game last night and it was shown numerous times during games on Sunday. That play is still being argued about. At least today the zebras can review the video on certain plays, like last night. They can reverse the call, although they didn't last night. The play last night was controversial no doubt, but it will soon be forgotten. Because there will be worse calls next week!
