I have tried real hard to stay away from the replacement referees fiasco. But after watching what happened tonight, I have to say I am SICK of watching these buffoons call games. Myself and 100 people of my choosing could probably do a better job of at least watching a replay and coming up with the correct cal.

This has gone on FAR too long. I feel bad for these officials, they are in WAY over their heads. With the real officials I at least felt they were doing their best to let the game be played and make the calls when it became necessary, of the violations flagrant beyond a reasonable doubt. These replacement refs are not just getting calls wrong; they are getting calls VERY wrong. And playing to the players, coaches, and crowds in a way that is effecting the integrity of the game.

I've tried really hard to ignore how awful the officiating has been in 2012. But after what I saw on Monday night between Green Bay and Seattle? I have to finally say:

THIS NEEDS TO STOP!

If it gets any worse, I won’t be surprised if Las Vegas pulls the games from the betting lines. It's coming dangerously close to where you have to wonder if there are other interests being served other than the best interest of the game.

Wow....you know it's bad when Russ fires up the PC at 9pm.



However, I to am greatly dissappointed in the outcome of the game and I'm not a fan of either team....but a fan of the NFL and my team with the star on the side of their helmet.



If that had been a Cowboy win that way I wouldn't feel very proud and would just be shaking my head. These guys/teams, etc work to hard for a game to end this way.



This also has a impact on divisional records......possible playoff seeding....etc

Just plain awful. I can't believe the NFL will let this go on much longer.

The nfl has become a joke. Last year it was the players locked out and this year the refs. These owners and the commissioner all talk about the integrity of the game. What integrity are they referring to? the only thing that matters is the how much $$ they keep at the end of the day! So dissapointing!

Wouldn't have even been there had not the SAME official missed the O pass interference call on Rice earlier. And he was the one who should have been able to see Tate push off. Wonder if he had bet the Seahawks.

IMO.......I think this will be the last weekend of the replacement referees with a deal reached by Saturday.

Just my opinion.

The same ref who made the TD call in the endzone is the one who called the pass interference to keep the Hawks drive going against GB when it was Rice who committed the interference. Wonder if he bet the Hawks? With what is going on now, it is hard to believe that the integrity of these obviously incompetent guys will start to be challenged as things like this continue to occur. It is one thing to miss calls, but another to make obvious mistakes that impact the results of games.

I just have NEVER been as disgusted for being a fan of this sport in 40+years as I am now.

I have seen some horrible calls made in games before. But never as many as I;ve seen in the first 3 weeks of this season and I am sickened by it. I have always stood by the mantra of "if you have to blame the officials, then you clearly you didn't win the game", but I seriously question THAT now.

The integrity of this game has aways been one I never questioned, no matter how badly I thought a game was officiated. But tonight? And many other games I have seen this season? It has become CRYSTAL clear that the NFL NEEDS to have full time officials, that go thru a training camp and off-season program of their own, to PROTECT the game from unimaginably horrific officiaiting like we saw tonight.

The complete incompetency, even if innocent on the part of those who have been entrusted to try to get it right until the real officials come back, is GLARING to the point of embarassment for the league. And it's making me ASHAMED for loving this game like I do, and have for so many years.

This is also the same ref that called Jennings catch a TD when he was out at the 1. Does this ref (#26) have any clue on what he's doing there?

On a separate note, my fantasy team was tied 110-110 when this play happened and I had the Packers defense...I'm not kidding. The play gets called right and I win. They call it like they did and I lose.
