The 2012 season got off to an embarrassing start, with the replacement refs giving us plenty to complain about, with awful calls, tediously slow-paced games, and general ineptitude.

Whether it was a particular player, team, fan base, or commissioner there was plenty of embarrassing moments to go around.

Under that definition here are the 5 moments that qualify.
