ESPN is bringing up Goldengate...again
Tue Dec 04, 2012 8:37 pm
  • On ESPN NFL frontpage. I urge fans not to read or take part in the comments section. It's kinda infuriating.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcnorth/post/_/id/50222/kicking-off-the-nfc-playoff-standings

    At the moment, the NFL's "Fail Mary" is directly impacting the playoff position of three teams in the NFC. There are four long weeks remaining before the postseason is set, but it's reasonable to believe that Tate's disputed touchdown reception -- a play that gave the Seattle Seahawks a 14-12 victory over the Green Bay Packers as time expired -- will weave its way into the 2012 playoff tapestry.

  • They're just looking for drama.

    Seriously, it's so stupid. Like that was GB's only loss. How about all their other losses, they are somehow less impactful ? Oh, that's right, they somehow only count as half a loss, while the one received at our hands counts double.

  • Seifert is the Mike Sando of the NFC North. Team is in his division and he gets kudos from them by bringing this up. Sort of like what Graziano is doing with his rankings where he will not rate the Seahawks any higher than a team with one less win.

    It is an exercise in futility but it helps his page hits. Redskins would be the 2nd wildcard seed **if** the world was lollipops and rainbows.

    Cry me a river and count me in when the Superbowl trophy is awarded to the team that deserves it and not the team that happens to get some really nice breaks. This is the essence of sports all those jokers claim to love.

  • I hope we meet them in the playoffs and run for 260 yards while keeping the ball for 45 minutes, allowing Rodgers a couple of 3 and outs to the tune of 45 - 0! Skunk!

  • Yep, building up the hype for another rematch in the playoffs. They sense that Seattle will be in the playoffs and causing a stir.

    If Niners retain the 2nd seed, Seattle owns tiebreakers over both GB and Chicago and would be the higher seed WC spot in the event of a tie with either.
    It's very possible: Chicago=6th seed, Seattle=5th seed, Giants=4th seed, Packers=3rd seed at the end of the season. We'd play the Giants in the first round leaving Bears and Packers to duke it out. We'd be fying across the country but playing on fieldturf rather than those other crappy grass surfaces though.

    we will be dealing with this shit for the life of the Seahawks. (foreever mark my words, it will be brought up 10 years from now) The media creates what it wants and perpetrates for ever. To this day lies and other lies are continued in the media as truths. They are above the facts. They only want the power of making the populace believe what they want for their own agenda.

  • I will say to this the same thing I say to bad ref calls: Make better plays sooner and don't let RW and Tate into the position to embarrass your team. Just because it was the last play of the game doesn't mean it was what won the game. Stop the Seahawks earlier, score more TD, Run the clock out, etc.

  • the refs had nothing to do with it. The reason we are talking about it is the same reason the Bears took us to OT last weekend. The DB messed up. Jennings blew it, just like Sherman did with the Bears. Time is running out, the ball is up for grabs, you frikin KNOCK IT DOWN! Jennings could have swatted that ball into the 4th row and this would have never have been talked about.

    "disputed"...

    lots of disputed calls in the NFL this season. Regardless, Tate's catch will be a major talking point as the next 4 weeks of "what if" scenarios take place, and teams start to fall out of playoff position will look to it as an excuse.

    I dont mind ESPN bringing it up (and atleast they called it "disputed") as it is still a big part of the season.

  • An institution such as ESPN loses all credibility (if they had any to start with) when it starts posting obviously biased reports blathering such as this. It is a sport (or at least it’s supposed to be) and sportsmanship is (or at least it’s supposed to be) part of the game. Bad calls are made every day in the league, some with major ramifications, some not so major. In his article he claims that the packers are “over it”. They themselves may in fact be, but quite obviously the Packer Fan-base and the ethically questionable sportscasters such as this are obviously not! Not by a longshot!

  • If people give you crap about it, just remind them of the 2010 season in which the Packers won the SB. They only made the playoffs as the #6 seed because of officiating error (which the League stated) in a game against Minnesota. No one whines about it (except Vikings fans) because it benefited the Packers. But when the shoe is on the other foot, the whole country is in uproar.

    That post is where I learned about this issue, which made the whole thing even more outrageous. I linked it to Sando and asked him if he'd consider doing an "alternative reality" blog where GB doesn't get into the playoffs and a legitimate champion crowned. I also think that Seifert is bitter that Seattle totally exposed his NFC North boys on their home turf, with the two winning drives being shown over and over and over on national tv.

    Both sound fun. Depends on what you want. Want people to shut up about golden gate? Gotta win. Want the maximum amount of tears from the packers and to strengthen their hatred for us? They miss by one game.

    Worst case scenario we play them in the playoffs and lose. Then we continue to hear we didn't deserve the win.

    I made a post about this while the entire country was losing it's mind after our game.

    I have tried twice to post this info on PFT when they mention the "Fail Mary" and my post about the 2010 Packers has been deleted both times. Must be Packers fans running that site.


    I've had mine deleted on the topic before too. It's a joke. Pretty sad actually. Completely civil well thought out post gets deleted in place of the drivel that's mostly posted there.
