for grabbing the helmet opening while tacking Berrian on the touchdown play. Unfortunately, the refs didn't even call a penalty (despite how obvious it was.)
From the opening series, when they inexplicably whistled a play dead as a running back is getting knocked on his butt (not wrapped up)costing the vikings a fumble recovery, to the end of the game the refs just stunk.

Just wondering if the you watched the first game between the two, when the refs obviously got the make sure Favre gets the win no matter what memo. The network even stopped showing replays on grossly overlooked calls. It was pathetic. By the way it is called forward progress you idiot

If packer players are so classless, why does the Queens organization keep coveting them. It was long ago they had a guy named Moss and the Williams boys aren't exactly top notch citizens.
I would caution Queen fans from criticizing any other fans in the NFL. When the wind changes Minnesota Fans will write off their teams in a second.
Pack signing Mr. drunk Koren Robinson ? Hope you are drowning in the TANK Tanko !

Moss was the man. When he mooned the Packers fans was great. The packers fans moon the opposing teams bus when it arrives, brett favre said it after the game in gb, and Moss was responding.

And for the record, I would like to point out that despite their illegal tactics, the Green Bay Packers STILL lost, because they are, like everyone in Wisconsin, LOSERS. With the help of Brett Favre, we thrashed you, Green Bay! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Not a very smart move them guys did. They were just jealous cuz the Vikings won. So what!!
How many times have the Packers won against the Vikings? You didn't hear of any Viking player retaliate towards the Packers in that way.
Doesn't pay to get violent & jealous like that. There are almost always a consequence one has
to pay for their actions. My favorite quote I've always given when I first heard of it, is this:
"The choices you make in life determines who you are and your future."
Think about that. Alot of truth in this statement.
May God forgive you as you think about the actions you've made. Jealousy and anger doesn't pay off in the long run.

This showes the mentality of the players look at all the foolish tatoos. Being paid big bucks and still can't play fair should fire them,that would make them play fair.
Yeah that makes a lot of sense. And why are you so worried about the tattoos? You insult their mentality and you can't even spell *shows* correctly? Spare us the lectures.

Seeing they can't compete legally, they try to maim and injure our players on the sly. Harris knew he grabbed helmet and he knew he couldn't keep Berrian out of the end zone, but he hung on anyway. Jolly plays on the edge? LOL, he should be playing on the edge of the bench.
Raji is a McMuffin disciple, overweight and overmatched.
I guess we shouldn't complain seeing as we have a history of going for the knees of opposing QBs. Then we have the Williams' and the steriod masking issue and Jared Allen isn't exactly a clean player. I haven't even gotten to the wizzenator or the love boat incidents. Its all in the context of the game. Lets not over-react.

They got fined which shows they loss twice on each of those plays. Its part of the game for some players which means they will be watched more closely and the penalty will be more severe for a 2nd offense. Remember this was a hotly contested game and emotions were running high on both sides. Some contained themselves and some did not. How the officials missed the penalty on tackling Berrian by the helment opening is beyond me. It was clearly obvious to everyone but the officials I guess, but then again they are human.
