    Not really. True he was pushed, but it was so close you couldn't possibly hope for an overturn.

    Bad call..but a correct one. In order to rightfully overturn that they had to prove he would have landed if not for the push..impossible with something that border line.

    Wrong clif... the ref was not to be swayed and it was clearly, at the very least, a questionable call, at most absolutely wrong, on a non challengable call. Replay and it's many wrinkles is a joke and makes a mockery of itself and the concept of calling a proper game. Get it right or get rid of it... either make everything challengable or make nothing challengable, that's it, no gray area.


    disgusted.

    point is, there is no way that ref should have been so emphatic on such an important and questionable call.

    Well I'd agree that they shouldn't reviewed it...but how can you possibly think they could have fairly overturned that?

    I was cheering for the raiders too...but I really think the refs made the right decision..the first time.

    The evidence was not there for an overturn...and even if they had overturned it..Raider's still would have lost.

    Actually..if you ask me..the Raiders didn't deserve to win. Tampa deserved to win..they just outplayed the Raiders in every way.

    The raiders did get outplayed but the replay thing has had me in a bad mood for the last 4 years or however long it's been back...


    I hate instant replay the way it is now.

    yeah the guy was definitely offside, the linesman got it totally wrong, should never have allowed the goal.

    Still if you're gonna play a 3-5-2 formation with wingbacks and one of them is carrying a knock you'll always gonna be prone to the ball over the top when trying to step up and play offside...

    oh hang on....wrong sport!! I'll shut up now

    So what happened, did the Raider's quarterback just have a disaster game, was that the difference?

    ps. glad the bucs won so at least my friend's team the Eagles went out to the eventual winners, no disgrace in that.

    This was an atrocious call, no doubt. Ask yourself, though, was it realistic for the Raiders to come back with 6 minutes left and the Bucs with the ball?

    well at least with those 2 points they could have had some inspiration

    when it was clear that the ref was a jerk, the raiders gave up and let those lat 2 TD's in

    i think it was POSSIBLE, maybe not likely though

    but still

    SpockBert: it wasnt their quarter back who had a bad game, it was their defence who couldnt protect their QB, which therefore gave the QB a bad game - but when they had that defence, you could see them put the points on the board
