Guys, we are probably gonna win it all this year, and if we do you KNOW they are gonna show that highlight. Both the Holy Roller and Immaculate Reception were wrong calls that shouldn't have been scores. but you know what those teams had?

MARKETING

what should WE call OUR play? that thing is gonna be in the history books some day, shouldn't have it be something better than a "they cheated" undertone. maybe something that seemed divine?

all just for fun guys but i'd be interested to here what you think

I have to say that I re-watched that play again today from the multitude of the available angles... I don't really care what other self appointed armchair replay officials call it, but I'm convinced Tate has his hands on the ball and has equal possession (tie goes to the offense). So coining terms like Fail Mary is just someone else attempting to disguise their butthurt-ness about the Pack losing to the Seahawks (I think that is a word). I'm officially tired of apologizing for winning and waiting for someone else with clouded judgment to see what I see. I say it was Golden Tate out hustling his opponent and say way to go Golden!

By the way, just to paint the picture of how ridiculous these folks are (I'm sure there are decent Packer fans out there too)... I bet a bottle of spirits on the game with a friend who happens to be a packer fan. He was ribbing me saying are you sure you want to bet? I even texted him right after the game and said "man, sorry for you to lose like that but what a crazy game" I thought he was a good friend, but his response.... nothing, He has not talked to me since or paid his bet. I am still shaking my head at this one, but at least I bet on my team.

But if I must give it another name how about "The Golden Reception" Go Hawks!

Yup. Left hand on ball. Doesn't matter who has "more control", two hands or whatever. If you needed two hands to have possession, then someone better correct that David Tyree helmet catch.

And your friend is a sad, crybaby punk with no integrity.

It could also be referred to as "the gods of football finally giving the Hawks some love" catch.

Hell no. I saw that before I posted; it's good, but Wail Mary is absolutely hysterical.

Yea, just like the other 24 touchdowns Wilson has thrown this year. Had all the elements of a touchdown. Counted for seven points.

I'm going with "Wail Mary" because of all the whiny butt-hurt Packer fans.
It's in better keeping with "Phail Mary" (intentional misspelling) and slips neatly in place of it. I'll use that term whenever I discuss the "Wail Mary" game where Tate caught the game-winning TD and Packer fans whined and wailed about it for months thereafter. I think I had a post last week where I used the wrong phrase so I'll find it and correct it to "Wail Mary".

I thought you needed to have at least 2 feet down, an elbow or knee to be considered a catch. The packers had none of that. Tate had equal possession and his backside on the ground. Seahawk Ball!

I like "A Twist of Tate". To me that really sounds like Seahawks new coming out statement!!! IF our Seahawks trash the league with Russell Wilson for the next decade, that play will be the one that caught national attention for Russell. A name that states "Hello World I'm Russell Wilson" is what I think the name should represent.

I don't care who the opponent that day was. That will be forgotten. It is going to be all about the Seahawks, Russell Wilson and Golden Tate. So I also like the name "The Golden Reception".

I disagree with this part. As someone who lives in Bills country I can't tell you how many times "Wide Right" is brought up every year when the Bills go for a field goal. This will never be forgotten.

I do like Golden Reception though.

The Fail Mary is pretty funny. We had much more sack than them. They were lucky our offense wasn't up to speed or another blowout.....

Over time (another 20 years or so), the memory of that catch will fade except for it being the final straw leading to resolution of the NFL's labor disagreement battle with the Referee's union.

Had it occurred during a playoff game, it would be remembered as much as "Wide Right" and the Immaculate Reception... but it didn't.

And there is nothing that we can do in the near term that will change the national perception that Green Bay was screwed and Seattle was gifted a win.

And if the Seahawks make it to the Superbowl this season (and especially if they win it all), the history books (Wiki article) will be about the magical season Seattle experienced with a rookie QB named Russell Wilson.

That, more than anything else, will cause the Twist of Tate catch memory to fade away into obscurity.

I don't know if anyone reads Sports Illustrated, but buried in the back pages of a recent issue they reexamined the play. They went through the steps of a simultaneous catch and concluded that, by rule, it was a simultaneous catch. They pointed out that who has "more control" was irrelevant. I showed it to a Packers fan. He was not amused. Ha

I think we should be damn proud of that game-winning play. I do like Golden Reception as our own label and I love Wail Mary as a funny reminder of all the whiners out there... But I really don't want to acknowledge the butt-hurt packer fans and the talking heads because I think of it as one hell of an athletic play by a guy that just wanted to win. We should show the Golden Reception play on the big screen before every packer game and the 12th man can give it a standing O.

Favorite Highlights...
Golden Reception
Russell Wilson's last 4 games
Harbough's post game presser
Romo botched fumble
Beastquake Run
Kam Hit on Vernon
Walter Jones Block into the Endzone
Hass sliding on his knees for the Touchdown
Cortez...
Largent Hit on Harden
...Damn there are just too many LOL

Today on Mike and Mike, they were talking about what would have happened if that play was called "correctly." That's such crap. That's a dead horse that has called "Uncle" a long time ago. It was somebody with Sclereth (sp?) but I think it was M&M. Mark flipped it talking about how no one thought it would affect us as far as playoffs go. Gave kudos to Pete. Good to see some people can look past it.

I've been calling it two things:

Stop whining Aaron Rodgers
-Or-
Touchdown

The latter is what I call the play to anyone who tries to say the Seahawks somehow "stole" or "cheated" or were gifted a win.

OPI on a hail mary as time runs out is irrelevant and there's not a "more control" clause in the rule.

The media can call it what they want. We still have the win, the points, and the playoff berth.

This may be the best way to respond to all the haters (found it in comments to an article about the Chicago allegations of Hawks getting away with something again) - it is a loop of the Kam hit on Vernon

His comment:

Seahawks fans currently unable to care about Goodell, too busy watching this on a permanent loop and looking forward to the playoffs…

I've seen the real refs make so many more horrible calls than the replacement refs. That call was disputeable but ultimately correct.

ESPN's "coverage" of the same straight-on angle of the "catch" shown many 1000's of times is what everyone can't get past. ANY instant replay ALWAYS has multiple angles of the play. But NOT on this catch solely because ESPN wanted controversy with the replacement refs.

Any resonable person after looking at reverse angle footage in slow motion should be able to see that it was indeed a simultaneous catch with the tie going to the receiver, and was properly called a TD. The subsequent review of the play was correctly applied. So this whole "controversy" was FABRICATED by ESPN for their own agenda. What a bunch of BS.
