The league said in a statement today that Seattle's last-second touchdown pass should not have been overturned.
The NFL says Seahawks receiver Golden Tate should have been called for offensive pass interference before the catch, which would have clinched a Packers victory, but that cannot be reviewed by instant replay.
The replacement officials ruled on the field that Tate had simultaneous possession with Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings, which counts as a reception. The NFL says that once that happened, the referee was correct that no indisputable visual evidence existed on review to overturn the touchdown call.
On the final play, Russell Wilson heaved a 24-yard pass into a scrum in the end zone. Tate and Jennings both got their hands on the ball, though the Packers insisted Jennings had clear possession for a game-ending interception.

I guaranty you that if Seattle was on defense and Green Bay was on offense when that play happened, Seattle would be crying big time! Seattle's excuse after any loss: the refs did it!
This is how a Seattle fan thinks:
After a loss: It's total B.S. that the Steelers won Super Bowl XL because of close calls made by the officials.
After a Win: It's awesome that the Seahawks were completely gifted a game by the refs! Not only did we get the blown endzone call, we also received multiple pass interference calls in our favor, that WE COMMITTED!

If I were a Packers fan I would be much more concerned about Mr Discount double check being on his *** 8 TIMES IN THE FIRST HALF. This sport always has and always will have questionable calls. Good teams rise above, crap teams bitch about getting robbed.
