I was watching this particular game last night, the Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos, in overtime. From 52 yards away, the field goal was made by the Raiders. They put the 3 points on the scoreboard, and the game was won. It was over. People started on their way home. But wait!
What is this? They’re taking the points off the board! What is happening? The Raiders have to try again. Why? What is the penalty? They’re trying to kick it at the same line? THERE IS NO PENALTY? So what happened?
Ah, Denver called a time-out…when? If it was not recognized before the play, it is never accepted as being a time-out. At least not until now.
I want an investigation. I want to know how much in debt those refs are, and I also would like to know which ref saw the time-out. Did anyone see it? I certainly did not.
Of course the Raiders missed the second attempt at a 52 yard field goal, so Denver went on to win the game with their own field goal. Too bad we don’t cheat, eh? Even if we had called for a time-out, it would not have been recognized.
Maybe some of you who are into football do not care about either the Broncos or the Raiders. That’s fine. What are you going to do when this happens to you and you know for a fact it is a lie? That you got cheated? Don’t expect others to stand up for you if you are not willing to stand for others. That’s all I’ve got to say.
This will be my post for today’s open trackback. I am too angry-still-to write anything cute or nice. Just don’t send any porn, or you will be banned. How’s that to let you know my mood?! Grrrrr.
