Any player/coach in Seattle that really thinks they won that game has zero integrity as a man and should be embarrassed.—

The sports world is still in a huff over Monday night’s enema performed on the Green Bay Packers by the NFL replacement officials.

While nothing topped the Twitter chloroform applied to the league by Green Bay’s T.J. Lang, here is a sample of Twitter’s work during one of the great sports shams of all-time.

Dude, no O.J. Simpson jokes please. 

OJ Simpson to Golden Tate: "Just admit it, dude."—

Note the handle. Congrats, this will be someone’s wife and/or Mom one day.

Lmao. RT @RealSkipBayliss: Congratulations to Golden Tate on making the first no handed catch in NFL history—

He must believe in Santa Claus too.

When Golden Tate touches the ground. He has both hands on the ball. That's a simultaneous catch. Tie goes to offensive player.—

If by compete, you mean assault someone, then I suppose you have a point. 

Anyone want some entertainment , read my mentions. The refs made the call not me. I did my job and competed for the ball.—
Golden Tate (@ShowtimeTate) September 25, 2012

I’m sure they’re getting on this Dick.

Officiating is pathetic -a wild victory by Seattle – NFL MUST DO SOMETHING NOW #PATHETIC The Commish better get the real refs on the field—
Dick Vitale (@DickieV) September 25, 2012

Well, this is straight up foolish.

Hey Packers man…Smoke a doob and forget about it!…no really!—

Oh dear god…

Oddsmaker @DannySheridan1 estimates that $1 BILLION in total money changed hands w/ the controversial Packers-Seahawks TD call.—

Seattle is likely to face The Rock at WrestleMania.

NFL Statement: "The result of the play stands as called; The Seahawks are going to Wrestlemania."—

Nothing like WWII jokes to lighten the mood.

Replacement refs overrule WWII. Germans won, covered. #replacementrefsoverrule

Not a Stevie Wonder joke…

The two officials working the Tate definitely seemed confused. 

Nobody's explained this yet: Never understood why one side is called the End Zone but the other isn't the Begin Zone. #nfl

Leave it to Arian Foster to bring clarity to the situation. 

Drama. Great for business. Godspeed, Ed Hochuli.—

It’s “cost” Jermichael, not caused. 

Come on @NFL this **** is getting out of Control. Caused us a DAMN game. Horrible!—
Jermichael Finley (@JermichaelF88) September 25, 2012

Finish it up, Barry.

NFL fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs' lockout is settled soon. -bo—
