    Stupid 2nd-year referee (NO v. GB)

    Did anyone see that stupid referee on Thursday night?

    Greg Jennings caught a 22-yarder from Aaron Rodgers with 2:26 left in the 3rd quarter. There was Defensive Pass Interference on the play, but Jennings still caught the ball. What did the stupid referee do? Instead of declining the penalty, he accepted the penalty and thus took away 22 yards receiving from Jennings and 22 yards passing from Rodgers. So the official scoring of the play will go down as Pass Interference.

    Yahoo has decided to count the play as 22 yards in its scoring, but on NFL.com, the yards were not counted and the penalty remains official. So, Yahoo will most likely be forced to take away those yards when it updates the scoring sometime this week.

    What the referee did was bullshit, but I don't know if there's anything that can be done about this.
