A Steelers fan has filed a court injunction that states the Chargers should not have been allowed into the playoffs based on the missed call during the week 17 game between Kansas City and San Diego. Daniel L. Spuck of Mercer, Pa., has filed a motion against the NFL to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. According to the Baltimore Sun, here are the details:
In the filing, Spuck suggested some possible remedies for the missed call. The NFL could suspend the playoffs for a week to 10 days, allow Succop to re-kick the field goal, or let the Steelers play the Chargers at a neutral site to determine who plays on.

This is a pretty extreme measure to take because your team was kept out of the playoffs but who am I to judge. I’ll take a wild guess and say Roger Goodell and the Chargers aren’t worried about this.
Better luck next year Mr. Spuck.
