    Ref in controversy has house vandalized
    FOXSports.com
    Posted: 1 hour ago

    NFL referee Pete Morelli is having a rough week.

    On Sunday, Morelli made one of the more controversial calls in NFL history, overturning what appeared to be an interception by the Steelers' Troy Polamalu. On Monday, his Stockton, Calif. home was vandalized, according to police reports.

    Lieutenant Thomas Wells of the Stockton Police Department told FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer that a police report was filed after a rock was thrown through Morelli's living room window late Monday night after Morelli and his wife had gone to bed. Lt. Wells emphasized that police had no suspect and no motive in the case and could not say with any degree of certainty whether the act of vandalism was related to Sunday's call.

    "We are aware of the situation and we're cooperating with police in any way we can," said NFL spokesman Greg Aiello.

    On Monday, the NFL admitted that Morelli had erred when he used instant replay to overturn the interception. Mike Pereira, the league's VP of officiating, said in a statement that the call on the field should have stood.

    "He maintained possession long enough to establish a catch," Pereira said. "Therefore, the replay review should have upheld the call on the field that it was a catch and fumble."

    Fortunately for Morelli — and the Steelers — while the botched call allowed the Colts to eventually pull within a field goal, it ultimately did not play any role in the outcome of the game, which Pittsburgh won, 21-18.

    I'm sure Morelli is glad ... that it wasn't a Molotov ****tail.

    His body language and trembling voice told us he knew that he was doing the wrong thing.

    Yeah, having something come crashing through your window in the middle of the night when you're asleep is just a hoot-hollering riot. Had it happen to me 10 years ago or so, and I still get a giggle out of it. No, not really.

    So, his wife "went to bed" and then the rock was thrown.

    She was probably pissed at him. How much money had she bet on the Colts?

    is it possible that "someone" "we dont know" could "accidently" throw a "rock" at tripellete's house?

    I hate fans who do this kind of thing. I really do. Didn't some fans vandalize Tommy Maddox's house sometime last year?

    I would, if the guy gets a demotion to yard-marker holder that's amusing and deserved, attacking his home, which includes his family, that's the kind of crap I do associate with people who aren't fans, just hoodlums, like Raider spawn.

    So the guy made a very bad call. He heard about it from fans and Porter. But for someone to go and do that to his home. Is just shamefull and classless.
