Default Morelli's house vandalized

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.

That's what he gets for messing up a crucial call. A VANDALIZED HOUSE!

Yeah, that was not cool to do to the man's home and family. But at least nobody was hurt.

GO STEELERS!!!!

Tommy's house was never vandalized, it was just a rumor. I wonder if this will turn out the same way?

Blowing a call and taking heat from the media, the fans and the NFL is one thing. The guy made a mistake. I doubt you ever see his face in a playoff game ever again. Hell, he might be gone from the NFL as a whole. Is that not enough? Going to a man's HOME, where his wife and kids sleep and vandalizing his house show's a total lack of class and it's completely uncalled for. Person should be locked up for a few months and when they get out, they should try finding a life.

After further review, the so called rock came off the ground by a mysterious source, traveled through the air and entered the window thus breaking the glass.

There is no Vandalism on the call and the rock is not charged a timeout
