Did anybody see the ending of this game?

Did anybody see a forward pass occur rather than a backwards lateral? 

I am Stillers fan, so it doesn't matter to me, because the Stillers win wither way, but I cannot see any of the laterals going forward.  Why would you even take time to review this and then call the play dead just to wipe points off of the scoreboard?

Very bizarre ending.

If that TD at the end had counted you would have seen Charger bettors carried out on a stretcher. 4 point dogs (SD) and never in danger of not covering.

goddell had the charges +4.5, and made sure it was in his favor, because clearly there was no forward pass at all

No forward pass at all.  I don't know what the fuck he saw.

That was a good one.

I hate to say it, but you are 100% correct.  Shoot me if I do that, again.

My  opponet had Pittsburgh defense. I needed the ref's help.

Well, Dusty's right on this one. That was highway robbery.

Even if there was an illegal forward pass, wouldn't there have to be a flag on the field for a review? Or have they changed that rule (I know they "tweak" the rules every year).

Regardless, it looks like major BS to me.

I had Pitt's D too, but had a good enough lead for it not to matter.

The Tomlinson pass to Chambers went forward, and it should have counted as a touchdown. The refs incorrectly applied the rule to that lateral to the one that went backward and was scored on. There was no chicanery, it was just typical incompetence. If you want a sport where there should be an investigation, it's college basketball.

As they explained on Sportscenter tonight (Mort), it wasn't the lateral from LT that took the touchdown away, it was the THIRD lateral that was knocked to the ground that didn't count...basically, that was an incomplete pass, Polamalu picking up that 3rd lateral off the ground and running it in, the review said that he couldn't do that..however,  I always though a backwards pass like that counted like a fumble if dropped, so....

The refs admitted they botched the call, so any NFL boot licking by ESPN is unfortunately for naught.

IMO it's not any indication of a OMG WORK!, rather just another example of the bumbling horde of Mr. Magoos that are the NFL officiating crew.

There was also a phantom interference call that set the table for the Chargers' lone TD.
