If you are referring to Forsett's TD that shouldn't have been a TD, that's not on the refs. That's totally on Jim Schwartz. He had the challenge flag thrown before Forsett got into the endzone. That took the call out of the refs' hands completely. He even said so himself during the post-game presser. His temper cost them that score. I won't say it cost them the game because nothing says we wouldn't have scored on that drive without his "help".
Loyalty to any one sports team is pretty hard to justify. ...the players are always changing, the team can move to another city, you're actually rooting for the clothes when you get right down to it.
