Last night's fiasco could be a blessing in disguise. I figured the only way the league may budge on this referee dispute is if a controversial call happens in a nationally televised game and costs a win to one of the popular teams (Packers, New York team, Pats, Steelers, Cowboys). If this does not change the league's stance, then nothing will. In the Lions game, the officials marked off 27 yards for a personal foul during Tennessee's drive for a FG in OT. Also on that drive, they reversed a Titans reception despite there being no definitive evidence to overturn the call. In the SF - Minnesota game, officials awarded the 49ers TWO replay challenges to which they were not entitled because they were out of timeouts. It's one thing to get judgement calls incorrect, but these officials cannot even get simple game administration calls right.
