And my beloved Packers were the victim.
Replacement ref furor grows after Seattle Seahawks’ wild win over Green Bay Packers – ESPN.
This all comes from the regular referees being locked out. The replacement refs have been the scourge of the whole season so far, not only blowing calls but failing to control players when fights break out. This is the first time, though, an actual game hinged on the call, as the interception was ruled a last-minute game-winning touchdown by Seattle.
This has even Paul Ryan
–who, as a Wisconsinite is a Packer fan before he is an anti-union Republican–calling for the NFL to cave to the Referee’s union at all costs. (By the way, why isn’t the players’ union refusing to play, in support of the refs? What happened to the solidarity of the labor movement?)
