Recent history reared its ugly head on Sunday night, as another dazzling primetime game was tainted by a blown call.
This time, it came in the form on a non-pass interference on what could have been a game-winning touchdown reception.
49ers linebacker Fred Warner clearly gave Seahawks tight end Jacob Hollister no chance whatsoever at hauling in Russell Wilson's pass, and Seattle ultimately, probably through their own fault, ended up losing.
It was clear as day to everyone watching except the fellas in black and white that Hollister was interfered with, and the NFL's explanation of the no-call was somehow equally infuriating.
Per Senior VP of Officiating Al Riveron, the play went to review and was deemed clean.
Pundits and players subsequently chimed in on Twitter, and San Francisco cornerback Richard Sherman was no different, only he found it within himself to defend the woeful blunder.
Come on, Sherm.
Hollister couldn't even push off here because Warner was draped all over him, so Sherman's statement trying to defend his teammate is absurd. The veteran DB can talk all he wants, but there's no arguing the refs blew the call and robbed Seattle.
