I’m very excited. We’ve actually been talking about it for the last three or four years during the season and it finally happened. It’s another chance to win something. In international basketball, these cups in the middle of the season are big. They mean something. And then history happens and it’s important.

Roger Goodell’s so-called better-than-ever NFL officiating blew the end of Cowboys-Lions, then doubled down

+

ARLINGTON, Texas — Saturday night, an NFL official clearly made a huge mistake. It happened on a massive stage, before a national television audience, in a game that was consequential for playoff seeding. When he was pressed for an explanation, he doubled down by describing a scenario that made no sense. This is what resonates about NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s better than ever officiating, which has glitched and rebooted seemingly every few weeks this season.

Two-point snafu gave Mike McCarthy a pass for play-calling blunder

+

The two-point snafu that suddenly turned a Lions upset of the Cowboys into a 20-19 loss became the primary talking point emerging from Saturday night’s game. That’s very good news for Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy gifted the Lions an extra 40 seconds or so on the final Dallas drive of the game, by dialing up a pass on second and 14 from the Detroit 33. The Lions at the time had one timeout remaining. If the Cowboys had run the ball twice, they could have taken at least 40 extra seconds off the clock before kicking the field goal that gave Dallas a 20-13 lead. Detroit got the ball back, after the perfunctory touchback on the kickoff, at their own 25 with 1:41 to play and no timeouts. They should have had a minute or less. While that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t have scored, it would have been much more difficult to move the ball 75 yards in 60 seconds than in 101.

Just admit it: The refs kicked the call against Detroit, changed playoff landscape

+

ARLINGTON, Texas -- I was in the umpires’ room with Jim Joyce all those years ago. The man had just made one of the most infamous calls in the history of sports, calling safe what should have been the 27th out of Armando Galarraga’s imperfect game for the Detroit Tigers. And in Joyce’s defense, he knew it too. He said as much as paced around that cramped, windowless room, copping to the ignominious moment that would come to define a decades-long career.
