Sorry Gamblers: Official Admits He Blew Final Call in Chargers-Steelers

Filed under: Chargers, Steelers, AFC North, AFC WestSo you had the Steelers and were giving 4.5 or 5 points, you may have thought you were getting screwed by referee Scott Green’s decision to overturn Troy Polamalu’s final-play touchdown. Now you can know for sure.

After the game, Green said he blew it:
Reporter: “So if the first pass didn’t hit the ground, why was the play killed?’
Green: “We didn’t kill it on the field. After discussion we decided there was some confusion over which pass we were talking about, and it was decided that it was the second pass that was illegal that did hit the ground, and therefore we killed the play there.’
Reporter: “But the second pass was legal?’
Green: “I know. The rule was misinterpreted.’
Reporter: “So it should have been a touchdown?’
Green: “We should have let the play go through in the end, yes. It was misinterpreted that instead of killing the play, we should have let the play go through.’
So the final score should have been Steelers 17, Chargers 10 (or Steelers 18, Chargers 10 if they made the Steelers kick the extra point). Instead it’s Steelers 11, Chargers 10. Very few decisions will do more to anger gamblers and fantasy football players around the country.
