The Immaculate Incompletion

  Louis Murphy had his 1st NFL TD catch to put the Raiders ahead 14-7 closing in on halftime.  As I jumped up and down giving high-5's to everybody around there was a call for an official review.  As I (and a sellout crowd of over 63,000) watched the replay on the big-screen we confirmed a TD, but the refs ruled incomplete as the ball came out AFTER Murphy had possesion and 2 feet down in the end-zone and he hit the ground.  Pile this one onto the stack of controversial (idiotic) calls that have cost the Raiders games.  They kicked a FG to go up 10-7, a four point difference from the TD which became the end result.  I joined the crowd in chanting Bull-$#^!.  Add this one to the list that consists of: The Immaculate Deception, The Lidle Fumble and The Tuck Rule.
