The Cowboys once again find themselves at the heart of a massive officiating controversy after the zebras leaned on instant replay to overrule Romo’s fourth-down strike to Dez Bryant in the final quarter — a 31-yard rope that put Dallas at the Green Bay 1-yard line with under five minutes to go. With the Packers nursing a 26-21 lead, Rodgers and friends went on to drain the clock for the win.
However, it is being reported that officials were paid by the Green Bay Packer to overrule the touchdown by Dez Bryant. Witnesses say they the owner of the Packers say “You won’t regret it” to one of the officials, leading to believe, the Packers were going to pay the officials for changing the call. Witnesses became suspicious and reported what they saw, after the game had ended. NFL vice president of officiating, Dean Blandino, tweeted shortly after the game, “Bryant going to the ground. By rule, he must hold onto it throughout entire process of contacting the ground. He didn’t, so it is incomplete.
The NFL was immidiately notified and began to investigate the situation. If it is confirmed that the Packers did, in fact, pay officials to overrule the call, the NFL will suspend the whole Green Bay Packers Team and management, as well as be lose their next round playoff spot to the Dallas Cowboys.
