GREEN BAY PACKERS
The Dude, this is todays business mentality. Never admit guilt or act usure of your decision until proven wrong. That would show weakness.
Too bad people/organizations think weakness is more important than character these days.
I agree 100% Dude. The league made this even worse by not admitting a mistake.
Now the report is that China doll 2.0 is out for the game against the skins. No way the Queens would of came back if king played the second half. We really need him to stay healthy.
Wonder that the record low is for sacks and pressure for the Pack. I have a feeling we might come close to it this yr.
We are all human and I don't expect perfection from anyone. What separates the "men" from the "boys" is the ability to acknowledge mistakes and try to not commit them again.
However, when evaluating the call, the league office doubled down claiming Clay violated the following rule: Rule 12, Section 2, Article 9 of the NFL rule book states that the “technique of grabbing the passer from behind the leg(s), scooping and pulling in an upward motion is considered a foul.”
I've watched the replay many times. Clay does none of those things.
Had the NFL come out and said it was the incorrect application of the rule and they would be working with referees to unsure that this rule was more consistently applied, I could have accepted it.
But instead, not only to they agree with the ruling, they are going to use the tape to teach teams how not to hit the quarterback. That is a level of stubbornness and stupidity that I simply can't comprehend.
When faced with a simple choice, the NFL consistently decides being a "man" is just too hard. What isn't hard for me to comprehend is why the NFL viewership numbers continue to trend downwards.
Why is the hell should I invest my time, attention and devotion to the game and to my team, when the BS that happened Sunday, could happen every week.
I couldn't agree more. Clay's hit should be used to show players exactly how to hit in the NFL. But instead the NFL is using it to show teams what is illegal. It is a joke and the NFL has lost me. I'm not saying I'm boycotting, but I will now only watch the Packers if I don't have something better to do rather than making it a top priority. And fall in Wisconsin, 9 times out of 10 I'll have something better to do. The rules committee has ruined the game.
