what a wretched call at the end of regulation, the Raiders were robbed

stupid fucking replay, it was obvious it was a pump-fake by Brady, clearly a fumble, and that was the call on the field, I'm shocked that they could blow the call like that

utterly fucking ridiculous

They didn't blow the call--that's how it was written in the rule book (unless the football was tucked, no matter what, it would be an incompletion--even if it was a fake) Does appear to be a rule in need of revision, but they called it as they were supposed to.

Go Pats!

Damn, I'll tell you what, Gruden was really classy about it in the post-game interview.

do you really think that replay was conclusive?!?! the purpose of replay is to over-rule a call that is clearly incorrect, but that's not how instant replay is used, they consistently over-turn calls that are questionable and inconclusive

but make no mistake about it, Brady's arm clearly came down and stopped, then the ball was stripped, and that's how it was called on the field, I don't understand how they could say that was conclusive evidence to over-turn it, I'm angry about this and I'm not even a Raider's fan, I can only imagine how incensed Raiders' fans, players and coaches are

I think the replay was conclusive in the only necessary respect--to show that Brady did not have the ball in a tucked position (though his left arm was on the ball for a split-second) According to the rule, if the ball, in the motion of a throw or even pump-fake, was anywhere except tucked, the "pass" should be ruled an incompletion as it was. I personally agree with you that it seems to be an oversimplified rule, and that it should be revised, but the fault lies only with the rule-book and not with the officiating of the game.

Tom Brady is a GOD. Drew who? Hey, the Raiders got that call sometime in the 70's-they showed it. Payback time!

*waiting for the inevitable heartbreak that is to come*

I laugh at the title of this thread.

I laugh at all the whiners (no offense Wanderer).

I laugh at the Raiders.

The reffs made a call. We won. Fuck the past, kiss the future.

Come on Pittsburgh (or the Ravens if they would get their shit together) we'll see ya next week and be ready for a fight.

GO PATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Could be a little cosmic retribution for Ben Dreith's wretched call 25 yrs ago.
At any rat...it was the right call...same call was made in rams game earlier this year...Warner was pumping , lost ball, but it was ruled incomplete. Nobody said anything about the fact that Woodson hit Brady in the head on the play, and the refs missed a call which should have put the Pats 15 yds closer.

As for next week, Belichick has always defensed Kordell very well, so don't write the Steelers ticket to the Big Easy just yet...it could come down to kickers...who would you rather have, Vinatieri or Brown?

Go Pats

Only New England/Boston fans hold grudges this long.
