Raiders got screwed on the call, but it doesn't really matter since Baltimore is gonna kick N.E.'s ass next week!!!! [prayer mode on]

replay's clearly show he wasn't throwing the ball contrary to the QB's post game statement! what's done is done.. [:(]

I would be pretty mad if the original call had been no fumble, but that's the call, that's life. I am PISSED that review, which is supposed to be based on finding CLEAR EVIDENCE to overturn the call on the field, prevailed. The Raiders got screwed!

There will always be blown or questionable calls. The one I remember the most was in an AFC conference Championship game between the Oilers and the Steelers. Even though replays clearly showed he was in the end zone, the refs ruled Mike Renfro caught the winning TD pass out of bounds costing the Oilers a trip to the Superbowl.

Yeah, The Evil Raiders got it in the A**, but that's where they like it anyway. Memo to Gus: Baltimore isn't playing next week. I know this because I have three cans of Iron City left from the case I had imported this summer. One for tomorrow. One for the Patsies. And one for when the Awesome, Big-Play, FOUR-TIME WORLD CHAMPION, Bounceback, Never-Say-Die Pittsburgh Steelers take the field in New Orleans. Seriously, it should be a gut-bustin', mother-lovin' hell of a football game tomorrow. Can't wait.

No doubt - might be the best game of the season!

It was a fumble. I'm glad the Pats won, but geez, that was obviously a fumble. Shawn

While it appeared to be a fumble, according to the RULES it was an incomplete pass. It was explained clearly on the NFL pre-game show this morning. I am a long time Raider fan & thought it was a BS call & still do. But it was the **legal** call.

Fumble called. --the right call. Review: left hand comes up and touches the ball before Woodson knocks it out. Thus, arm to rest and 'tucked to body'. --the fan's call. Call reversed: no fumble. --the ref's call. Pats score and Raiders demoralized. --priceless example of how replay is a bunch of useless shit.

No use wasting space when you've got it right. Unfortunately.

That was THE play of the game. Woodson? Should've made MVP for that play!

Charles Woodson never played with the Steelers. That was Rod Woodson, who now plays for the Ravens. The Ravens that just got trashed by his former team. Muahahahahah!!!
