10 of Worst Officiating Calls in NFL History
It's not easy being a Zebra no matter where you are.
In the jungle you'll most likely get eaten by Lions or other big jungle cats.
In the sports world guys twice your size and millions of fans want to beat you because of a bad call you made.
That's a lot of pressure on a guy who already has to wear the same colors of a prison inmate.
Let's take a look at ten of the worst blown calls in NFL history.
Music City Miracle
You ask a Titan fan about this play and he'll say that there is no way this was a blown call.
You ask a Bills fan about it, and you'll see tears running down his face.
Was this a lateral? You decide.
(Bad Quality Video, Sorry)
The Bus Gets Hustled
You'd think a coin toss would be impossible to mess up. Well not if you are an NFL Referee.
Phil Luckett was the same ref who allowed the "Music City Miracle" to happen after he reviewed it.
He's also the guy who blew a coin toss.
The Bus called tails, but the ref heard heads and gave the ball to the Lions.
Too bad the rest of the world heard tails too.
Don't Whistle While You Work
The NFL must do something about premature whistle-blowing.
This call was literally blown. Chargers fan are probably still upset about this one.
Cheese Heads vs. Rice
Jerry Rice had some big calls go his way against the Packers.
Had there been an instant replay rule in place when this happened, the Packers would have beat the 49ers.
Go to the seven minute mark of this video and you decide.
People say this wasn't a catch and had the play happened in Oakland the refs would have called it in their favor.
Is this home court advantage or was this just a great play?
It Was a Fumble!
I watched this game and all I can say is FUMBLE!
This play changed the landscape of football.
It began the Patriots dynasty and the Raiders down nasty times. You decide if this was a good or bad call.
Mike Renfro Is Out of Bounds! Or Is He?
Mike Renfro makes an amazing catch! No he didn't! The refs rule him out of bounds.
Tough break for Houston and bad call by the refs for an AFC Title game.
Couldn't find a video for it.
Who Dat Who Hit Favre Illegally?!
Were the Vikings a missed call away from the Super Bowl?
The NFL did come out and say it should have been a 15-yard penalty after the game.
Another Bad Call!
Jay Cutler was very upset that this was incomplete pass against the Bears.
Now Bears fans are upset because he throws too many in completes for his new team!
You be the judge on this play.
Another Raiders Wideout Gets Robbed
I was at this game and it looked like a catch.
It's amazing how much a ball call can change the crowd's emotion so quick in the stadium and how much it can change the momentum on the field.
