Golden Tate Gate on Monday Night Football: You Decide

Sept 24, 2012; Seattle, WA, USA; Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate (81) holds on to the game-winning touchdown as time expires against the Green Bay Packers at CenturyLink Field.

It’s the morning after. I am sure you have all seen it, or at least heard about it by now.

The touchdown heard around the world, or was it? Tate and Jennings both go up for Russell Wilson’s final pass, and the ruling was simultaneous possession, which goes to the wide receiver. The refs were clearly confused about what to do, as we saw closing the game.

The league is in an uproar, the tweets coming in from all around the sport have to be embarrassing to the commissioner. Will this spur negotiations to bring back the referees? Time will only answer that question, but we all can only hope.

For anyone that hasn’t seen the play yet, I wanted to give you the chance. For those of you that might have fallen asleep prior to the end of the game, here it is.

So, what do you guys think? Feel free to comment.

    Personally, I’m done with the game (no more NFL season watching till the week the replacement refs come back (I was about to get Directv’s package but MNF just saved me some money)… I’m not wasting my time on days/nights watching games swing on rubbish calls. I’m a Packer fan, but I remember watching the Lions 49ers game and being shocked at the number of decisions that almost handed the game to the 49ers. I also realized one thing… watching the raiders, niners, packers, ravens this weekend… the poor calls really ruin the rhythm and flow of the game and it totally confuses the hell of the players. Light infractions are called, then they are not, bad infractions are called, then they are not… it makes for a really confusing and frustrating game to watch as a player and a fan.

    I’m 51 and I still recall the travesty in a cowboys/vikings game years ago when drew pearson obviously pushed off and caught the game winning td in a very important game–it has always upset me as a terrible injustice. Now, I have a second injustice to add to it.
    I pray the nfl overturns the call and at least rights this incredible wrong.
    For better or worse, this game is too important to me to be disgraced like this.
