Today turned out to be a fantastic day, and you know why? Because when I woke up, I started out with no mistakes. And to top that off I am ending it with no mistakes. Oh weight, I do stand corrected, I did make one mistake today and that was arriving to my physical therapy appointment about 15 min. late and that Jews does not normally work for me, that is out of my character completely. I am 99% of the time never late and I am usually 15 min. early if not earlier because I find it an inconvenience for me to waste my our of therapy or my doctors appointment if I’m going to be late. So this Friday for my appointment, which is at two o’clock I am telling myself that it is one o’clock and I even have it written down as such. If I show up an hour early, I’m cool with that because I would rather sit there in read or even sleep than be late. Okay, now let’s get back to the people who made the real mistakes today,and I can name off about seven, possibly eight people that cannot say that they only had one mistake today. Iaf you haven’t guessed already, I am talking about the Monday night football game between the always incomparable, “Seattle Seahawks” versus the “Green Bay Packers”. There are about seven judges and umpires, and whatever but they are all considered officials down on the field and they have one up in the booth so that makes about eight. unfortunately these people come from a habitat known as college football and they have the basic set of rules down as in the NFL, but there are quite a few rules as we barely noticed tonight that they don’t have any kind of a grasp on. Pace flags on pass interference call that shouldn’t of been and they didn’t throw flags when there should have been. They’ve probably will be going over the game films themselves all night, because I’m sure they do that anyway. But soon I will definitely be in education and training shall for future officials. I had already stated on Facebook that this game today will go down in history as one of the biggest upsets possibly in the game of football, because it had nothing to do with the players. It was all on the officials today. If anybody knows anything about what is going on with the lockout from the regular NFL officials, please let me know. Add it to this page and will forward it on to Facebook and we’ll spread the word more from wherever we can.
My dad is beneficial for high school and peewee football and on up, but up to high school. And he has been doing this for several years, and I am talking in to the multi digits, okay multi probably is not the right word, he would smack me in the back of the head if he saw me right that. But he is been officiating ballgames of all sorts of types and coaching football and softball and baseball, so there is not a rule, regulation, or question that couldn’t be as that he would not know the answer to. Just sitting here at the house watching his normal game with the regular officials last year, is stuff that they don’t see or he’ll see it and pointed out before the flag even comes out. Maybe he has a better vantage point of view, but he knows what to look for.
I do seriously hope that after tonight’s game, after tonight’s officiating all rights hearing, that somebody gives in real quick, like before Thursday. I don’t care who it is but somebody needs to give in on whatever they are asking for the need to compromise on one side of the table and the other.
So tell me what you guys think of today’s game, my official opinion is that I am glad Seattle gets the mark on the win column, and I will admit that I am not proud of how they did it because it was obvious Green Bay intercepted the ball in the end zone. But I am very happy that the other official called it a touchdown, but I’m also surprised because I thought he had a better advantage point to see what was going on and that Green Bay had the ball and more of their control. But as they say, good, bad or indifferent, a win is a win.
Well,this blogger is done for the night, so I will be looking forward to seeing what everyone has to say, I have a feeling it’ll be a similar take us to what I said except for maybe the umm, win/loss team. But anyways speak up, speak out, let your voice be heard!
