Desmond should have been flagged for dropping a ball that hit him in both of his Heisman Trophy hands.
Bingo. It was over a minute of play as well I believe.
Obscure close one for me. Padres yankees world series. San Diego (whales vagina) threw a third strike down the middle of the plate that was called a ball. Next pitch tino martinez took over the fence. That call made naked gun look like a true story.
Coin flip of the Steelers-lions Thanksgiving game a long time ago was pretty poor.
Everyone I tell this story to looks at me as though I must've misunderstood something, because it couldn't be possible!
These are all good, especially the pylon call IMO, but this one takes the alltime missed call cake. This truly doesn't seem possible!

Holy hit I just now took the time to look up the pylon play, ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???????????????
I think the 2008 pylon "touchdown" might be a lot worse.
"Yes, but that's fine though. We only complain about the non-calls when our Heisman receiver drops an easy throw. We 100% would've converted had they called that penalty."
...wait what??? It was pretty clear why the basket didn't count.
Youtube "Joey Crawford"
He could take up this whole thread.
Before people come and nail me as a Blazer homer. I do not blame the refs on the outcome of the game (even though Camby got his 4th foul and had to come out... and it all went downhill from there). Blazers let it go and did not execute and ended up getting blown out by their own play.
There are times to sit back and watch how bad the refs can be in the NBA (no matter what team you cheer for). And while Stern hates when people discuss them, there is a reason why sometimes. This might be one of the worst fouls called ever.
Foul is called on Brandon Roy, then changed to Marcus Camby... then Crawford says Camby fouled Nash... Nash shoots free throws... watch the video and you'll see why this could possibly be one of the worst calls ever. Also this went down as "Nash draws the foul on Camby" on espn and nba's website.
Lots of different views on this one, but one things for sure something went incredibly wrong. You be the judge.
*Update 4/29/10 - There seems to be some confusion, let me clarify that this foul was called as Camby fouling Nash. Here is a link to ESPN play by play 3rd period, scroll down to the 5:20 mark and you will see "Marcus Camby personal foul (Steve Nash draws the foul)" http://goo.gl/wJtX .
*Note to viewers who are commenting, this video is not about NBA being rigged or if this was a game changer or not (thank god it didn't have that big of an effect). Do not manipulate my words to make it seem like I'm saying the Blazers only lost due to Joey Crawford. I do not think this and have stated it above already. This video is purely about a missed call, a really badly missed call that made absolute no sense. Just sit back and look at it in that context and 'enjoy'
(tongue in cheek)
A little longer ago, but probably the worst call in the history of Detroit sports. The foul on Laimbeer that pur Kareena Abdul Jablunt on the line and handed the Lakers the title in 1987. Not only was Laimbeer (or anyone else for that matter) not within 5 feet of KAJ but that call has still, to my knowledge, never been replayed since it happened. If you watch replays of the game, that portion is ALWAYS cut out. All you see (hear) is a whistle and KAJ on the line. The game was essentially over at that point and the Pistons would have won the series (up 3-2 going into the game at the Silverdome).
All Spartans who are old enough know that these are the correct answers. Nothing even compares.
I might actually say the Kansas game was a worse screw job, but it's a tossup. The clock actually stopped in the NCAA tournament for a significant period of time and they allowed what happened during the stoppage to be counted.....That would be unheard of in almost any other circumstance.
The Kenny Anderson shot a few years later felt like piling on to what had happened in the Kansas game. Screwed by the clock again....
These are all too painful. I like the fan blocking the pass play, a few posts up.
This season in a SF Giants game, a fan reached over the fence and picked up a live ball hit down the 1st base line. Then returning to his seat, he realized he was in trouble, so he handed the ball to this other guy.
The cameras show the OTHER guy getting escorted by security out of the stadium. Pretty bad call.
With me being an older spartan, you are correct...I only cited the Laimbeer call since it likely cost the Pistons a championship.
Wings versus Sharks 2-3 years ago: Johan Franzen was high-sticked, bleeding, and somehow the penalty was called on him. Terrible officiating all series.
That's right. Alexander was out of bounds on one TD (I think it was the first in that game?). And in 2001, they all seem to forget that we should have had a timeout left due to the penalty. But nope, they got screwed. Frankly, I'm happy with those "controversial" finishes. I bet it haunts Desmond Howard to this day. It's hilarious how Walmarters honestly believe that we need their validation. Like how a fat ass will go out of their way if they see you wearing MSU gear, to spew some unintelligent b.s.
Location: Mumbai, India
To answer the question though, off the top of my head....2006 Detroit vs. Miami, every game. The past several Detroit vs. San Jose series, as someone else has mentioned. The Sacramento/L.A. Lakers series, which was fixed. MSU @ Michigan in 2006 (Basketball). The no fumble call against OSU this year. Obviously the pass interference against Nebraska. I'm too young, but the NCAA debacles against GA Tech and KU.
Not the worst ever but worth a mention. The 5th down call play was pretty darn bad.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
Bobby William's call to go for 1 and get up 5 instead of 4, instead of going for two and trying to get up 6 after Smoker hit Haygood.
This is up there.
Wasn't there an MSU v Scum game where scum shot 40 free throws and we shot 4?
