Drew Brees on clock error: “That can’t happen”

ZogZerg : 9/10/2019 7:42 am
Saints screwed AGAIN by officials on a complete F*ck up of the clock at the end of the first half.

The officials stole 15 seconds from the Saints, which basically cost them a Field goal and could have cost them another game.

Officials cost the Saints 15 seconds at the end of the first half, time which could have been quite valuable in a close game. Kicker Will Lutz missed a 56-yard field goal after the mishap, when they ostensibly could have gotten closer.



The NFL is a F-ing clown show.

Drew Brees on clock error: “That can’t happen” - ( New Window )
I was wondering about this when it happened

I mean - the NFL has a lot of people watching these broadcasts, doesn't a very obvious error like that make someone pick up a phone and say 'hey, wait a second...'

From the moment they said 'the game clock is correct' - someone, either part of the NFL officiating crew not on the field, someone in the replay booth, someone - should have hit the red panic button and told them they had fucked up.

Jax/KC game we never hear about it

But for that to happen to the Saints, with half the fans wearing ref outfits as a sarcastic jesture, is just really really awful
The NFL by now has to know they have a serious problem

With poor quality officiating. But as long as they are making money hand over fist, I doubt they worry about it. Missing an obvious call on the field is only one part of the problem. The bigger issue is that in some cases, like last night, it seems the refs don’t understand the rules of the game. That is inexcusable.
According to Gene Steratore

The setting of clock after replay like that is from the command center in NYC overseen by Alberto Riveron, a Referee washout.
Saints need to stop crying, play and live with the outcome.

Good game.
It is pretty..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 9/10/2019 8:32 am : link
brutal when sitting at home one can tell immediately that the clock should revert back to when the play ended instead of letting it run - but on the field, they miss it, even with the saints screaming about it being wrong. This isn't the first time the clock flap is an issue. Remember the Lions getting screwed last year when a review runoff ended a game on a play that ended at the 6 inch line?

The NFL will continue to get it wrong until they standardize what NY is responsible for vs. the game officials. Initiate all reviews from the "command center" and get simple things like the clock correct. It really is a shitty rule to charge a runoff on a play that is initiated for review to begin with.

Actually, the NFL should just get it right. There's nothing subjective about clock management.
Something similar happened at the end of a Lions game a few years ago  
The Dude : 9/10/2019 8:44 am : link
There was about 7 seconds left, no time outs they ran a slant right at the goalline for the winng TD...initially called a touchdown but on the review they saw he was down at the 1. Soooooo, with no timeouts and after a review there was a run off applied....game over. lol
It was a fucking joke  
justafan : 9/10/2019 8:46 am : link
and plain as day to even a novice fan that the ruling just didn't make sense. #UnfuckTheSaints
This was the ONLY game on.  
ZogZerg : 9/10/2019 8:46 am : link
All the NFL "experts" from NY to wherever were watching and not on dumb-ass could fix the screw up?

The NFL should be embarrassed about how idiotic they are.

I don't think that's correct. I thought they intentionally wait for the offense to get set before going to the replay so that the offense doesn't get the benefit of an extra timeout. So letting the clock run down to 26 sec was correct (I think).

But they screwed up then taking an extra 10 seconds off the clock.

And what's the point in having a former ref in the booth if he's just going to justify the screw ups. He should be explaining what the rules actually dictate should happen.
It's an NFL, primetime broadcast  
jcn56 : 9/10/2019 9:07 am : link
I'm sure that organization has enough flunkies in it - can't they have one guy whose only job it is to make sure the clock is right?

Sitting at home you could tell right away that they messed up - they did the right thing with the runoff, but they didn't pick the right start time to run down from. They hosed the Saints.

And before anyone starts with 'the Saints should stop crying', you know if that happened to the Giants you'd be screaming bloody murder, and rightfully so. That kind of silly, egregious error is not supposed to happen with a professional officiating crew.
Well the Saints showed last night at the end of the 4th Quarter  
figgy2989 : 9/10/2019 9:09 am : link
what they can do with limited time. That 15 seconds is crucial at the end of the half and with the MNF being a stand alone game, how can the NOT get that right?

It makes no sense, but hey let's add challenges to PI calls that you still can't get right.
I still recall the Giants game in Dallas a few years ago  
Poktown Pete : 9/10/2019 9:31 am : link
Where the 'Boys needed to drive the field with almost no time to try and pull a come from behind victory. Seemed the the Dallas clock keepers were very slow starting the clock after each Dallas play had started, saving them precious seconds each play. Of course, our D eventually failed and we lost, but there was an outrage about how much the clock guy helped. This is something else that needs to be fixed.
pretty egregious screw up ......  
BillKo : 9/10/2019 9:53 am : link
on this type of play, you need to do really one thing.

If a play is deemed reviewable, you need to get the exact time of the play, review the play, and if the offense has no timeouts, run 10 seconds off from that time.

Last night, they took 10 seconds off after NO had lined up...which was about 10 seconds from the end of the previous play. The reason for the rule in the first place!

That was the game where I knew Coughlin had lost his fast ball

That was the opener in 2015? There was a rule that probably needing changing - not sure if it still is active.

Eli hit OBJ for a key first down to keep the clock rolling, but with no timeouts, Dallas also roughed OBJ on the play.

That stopped the clock. Bad rule!!!! We got the 15 yards (actually have the distance) but the clock did not continue.

Then the Giants screwed up the goal to go situation, kicked a FG and ended up losing.

But the point is, a team committed a penalty and it stopped the clock which aided them immensely.
notice how they have

an ex officiating name as an ombudsman to explain away bad calls in key games? corruption and making shit up to suit their (NFL) goals. They already know most of the playoff participants already.
