Democrats in Denver have even more reason to love their party; democrats in San Diego even less.
Before the real controversial play in Denver’s victory was another less controversial play in which Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey stripped the football from Chargers wide receiver Chris Chambers as they fell to the ground.
The ruling on the field was a fumble, and when officials went to the booth to see if the on-field call stood, the replay machine was not working. Not working?
Well, it turns out that the replay machine was removed from its usual spot for the Democratic National Convention. It was reinstalled for the Broncos’ first home game since the convention, tested before the game, and all seemed OK. But the equipment glitch kicked in at the least opportune time.
The NFL maintains that the play would not have been overtuned anyway, that the correct call was made. Still, Democrats in Colorado have reason to love their party even more while Democrats in San Diego have reason to love theirs less.
