That's simple; the refs work for the NFL, the NFL is a business that wants to make as much money as possible, and it takes fans to generate that money. The more fans you have watching a given game the more money it's worth.

Green Bay and Dallas are the NFL's most popular teams. In the post season, having more popular teams playing is desirable from a ratings/profit standpoint.

The refs can't help obviously bad teams win without throwing up red flags, but they can certainly give preference to one team over another in playoff games. Since teams there are generally evenly matched, one team can easily be nudged past another via calls.

Again, I'm not saying that happened in this instance (I didn't really watch the game nor did I see the play in question) ... but sure, the refs could very well have motive.
Well, at least you aren't like a Bears fan and DENY that the Packers are a popular team. But here's my riposte, for YEARS GB had been like one of the MOST heavily penalized teams. Only the Oakland Faders seem to get hit more. This year we cleaned up a lot on the penalties, but still had too many drives kept alive by a defensive penalty on a third and long against GB. So I think the whole premise is false.

Bears fans deny the Lombardi was named after Vince.

They think it was named after the pizza joint.

I already did. Imagine, thinking you're the king of smack by reminding a Packer fan they had a 15-1 season. :point:

Actually, he called you 15 and one and done.

Yes, that is smack.

It's not a reminder that that you went 15-1, it's a reminder that you had potential, then choked when it counted.

[Mod Edit: It's the smack shack but lets keep the vulgar jokes out]

You only think it's good smack because you really don't have anything better. I keep telling you reminding us we won 15 games is not much of a put down. I mean New England was undefeated all the way to the Superbowl before they lost it to the Giants. Just when was the last playoff win for the Vikings again? Was it not theose self same Giants that absolutely CRUSHED you guys that one good year you had a LONG time ago? They only beat my Packers. They did not whip them like the bad dogs the guys in Purple were that day.

Um, no, it wasn't. We beat the Cowboys in 2010 (2009 season) prior to bounty-fest against the Saints.

Hell, that Giants game was so long ago, it was prior to the Vikings beating the Packers in 2004.

What you can say... is, that you were were completely wrong, were shown to be the fool, and can't get your facts straight to save your life.

If your going to base your point based on entirely fabricated information, the least you could do is wave your white napkin while wiping the egg off of your face.

Still trying to see where I was made the fool.

Not seeing it. What did I fabricate?
