Bad Referee Calls
Jay Leno once announced he pined will probably be referee as he was younger, but his 20-20 vision proved to be an encumbrance. Like other of Leno subtle humor, there's a sum truth to the joke.
Professional sports referees are dealt the arduous task of officiating the most-watched sports entertainment and therefore are incessantly scrutinized certainly where an player, pundit or patron disagrees their calls.
Maybe the ref job is always to endure this form of criticism, women and men bigger important part of his role could possibly be make accurate decisions. From time to time, Steven Jackson Jersey however, Cheap Deion Branch Jersey an umpire might an New York Giants Jerseys erroneous, game-altering determination by either hallucination or disregard -- at the same time pours you cannot press.
Leno is best: Some referees are visually Carolina Panthers T-Shirts challenged this kind of Elite Dante Hughes Jersey top 10 list is most likely the evidence.
Number 10Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Detroit Lions1998 NFL Thanksgiving Game
Referee: Phil Luckett
A referee is invariably ribbed about his questionable vision, primarily NFL official Phil Luckett, it would be 1 his other four senses that malfunctioned in an overtime coin toss. Steelers running back Jerome Bettis distinctly called with the exceptional declaration was NFL Baltimore Ravens Jersey heard through field audio. If the coin landed with facing up, Luckett awarded the ball toward the Detroit Lions.
Outcome: The Steelers launched in overtime but not saw the ball again. Detroit would drive down the sphere and kick the game-winning 42-yard field goal.
Number 9Green Bay Packers vs. Region 49ers1998 NFL Wild Card Game
Referee: Gerald Austin
In Sacramento 49ers lore, there is two last-second, heroic touchdown receptions simply referred to as a Catch with the Catch II -- the aforementioned this dont want to have happened. Down by four points, the 49ers moved into Packer territory with less than one minute hufhfguh401 remaining. Above a second-down play, Jerry Rice made a reception above short crossing route and fumbled. Replays indicated that the ball had slipped from Rice grasp before either of his knees had made touch with the soil, nonetheless, the official ruled that Rice was down ahead losing control of the ball.
Outcome: The 49ers completed the comeback as quarterback Steve Young determined Terrell Owens between five Packer defenders on miraculous 25-yard touchdown with three seconds left.

As has been noted in previous posts, the adopted method of identifying 'lonely' highrise buildings isn't ideal. Nevertheless, some great examples have been posted in this thread!

Just wanted to quickly address the case of Vienna – with the Millennium Tower ranked 7th in Twipsy's 2008 list. The tower does not have immediate neighbours, but there are quite a number close by (self-made map attached).



One of the DC towers is currently under construction and is set to be completed shortly. At approx 721 feet (814 incl. antenna) it will easily surpass the 500 foot benchmark. The DC 2, for which construction is only set to begin in 2015, is planned to max out at 550 feet.

Further waterfront projects that are in their planning stage include the 'Danube Flats' (476 feet) and the 'Marina Tower' (426 feet).

The Millennium Tower will be rubbing shoulders with other towers very soon

The Millennium Tower isn't actually on any of those pics I attached in my post. Sorry, my bad

Here's a photo taken by one of Vienna's most prolific SSC posters, stefanguti (uploaded on May 27th, 2012). The Millennium Tower is on the far left of the pic.

NY probably has the densest concentration of skyscrapers in the world when it comes to that. As for supertalls? Probably Dubai.

I think the 5 densest high-rise cities in the world are NYC, Sao Paulo, HongKong, Chicago and toss-up between Vancouver and Miami for 5th place.

How about Panama City? Panama City has to be one of the densest cities in the world. I'm not a fan of the buildings at all, but they sure are packed in there.

Panama City's center is more packed than New York's for sure. I think the only other places with the same density are Chinese cities like Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou but that's it. Dubai is packed around one highway but that's it

That's a joke. Compare the two citie's downtowns (in size) and count the tall buildings. Panama city pales in comparison. And if we count the average height of the buildings, New York is even further away...

Densely packed, not largely scaled. Panama City is a joke by those standards compared to some.

Sao Paulo is a great example. Just imagine all those midrises 2 to 3 times taller and you have Panama City's downtown.

Panama City 2 years ago in just one small peninsula (Punta Pacifica). The designs suck, sure, but you can't tell me Panama City isn't in the top tier in terms of density. The skyline continues along the coast into Punta Paitilla and Avenida Balboa and goes back to the banking district in Calle 50 before catching up with the residential areas of the back and linking once again to another coastal skyline in Costa del Este. Midtown in terms of area isn't as large as you think it is and isn't even connected to the Lower Manhattan skyline.



Most of these are taller than 500ft (the tallest ones in terms of vantage point being 600-750ft) and this doesn't even include the tallest ones which are on Avenida Balboa and Punta Paitilla (which are also tied to the skyline but don't show due to angle)

Mohegan sun building, is not tall enough but still stands out. Is basically located in a native american reservation, so there is nothing but woodlands surrounding this building.
