I’m sure everyone remembers the incident during the Green Bay Packers-Seattle Seahawks game where the replacement referees called a touchdown on a play that shouldn’t have been a touchdown. At a recent charity softball game, Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate was photographed with the replacement referee Lance Easley that called the play a touchdown. Tate, as you may recall, was the player that caught the infamous touchdown that pretty much ended the referee lockout.

Many of the players there used this as a running joke throughout the event, which even Russell Wilson got in on.
Touchception ref with a questionable "safe" call on a ball at first. Russell Wilson argues, throws hat, throws base, all in jest.

It’s a lot easier to joke about the incident now since both the Packers and the Seahawks made the playoffs. And even though the Packers lose home field to the San Francisco 49ers because of it, something tells me that still wouldn’t have helped them stop Colin Kaepernick.

Ah, replacement referees. Remember those first few weeks of the 2012 NFL season? When rules were confused, calls were botched, and coaches looked absolutely fed up with the NFL because the league's regular referees were demanding a raise?
Arguably the most controversial call made during the brief but impactful Replacement Ref Era was The Immaculate Touchception that gave Golden...
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES
Golden Tate and NFL replacement referee Lance Easley, who credited the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver with the game-winning touchdown in Week 3 of the 2012 season, reunited on Sunday. Easley umpired Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s charity softball game at Cheney
If you are a Packers or Seahawks fan you surely have not forgotten the touchdown which looked like it was falsely awarded to Golden Tate, costing the Packers a 14-12 loss during week 3 of the 2012-2013 season. Well, not to rub salt in the wounds if you are a Cheesehead, but Golden Tate recently reunited with the replacement referee Lance Easley, during Richard Sherman’s Celebrity...
Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has a lot of talent on his young defense, but the secondary is the unit most people think of first.
The Pro Bowl laden secondary may be the premier group, however, the linebackers and in particular Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright are starting to make a name for themselves.
They are the defense’s top tacklers from the 2012 season...
I’m a Seattle Seahawks fan and hope Darren Fells turns into Tony Gonzalez, but I’m not taking that emotion into the fantasy football draft with me.
I’m not a fantasy football genius, but I’m not as dumb as I used to be. I’ve been playing for six or seven years now. I once dropped Brandon Jacobs at 3AM thinking he was Brandon Jackson. I once picked a backup quarterback...
BRING THE NOISE

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman hosted his annual charity softball game today. He also made a move that is probably similar to kicking a Packers fan in the shin. Among other umpires was the ‘fail mary’, ‘shameful’, ‘Seattle Screwjob’ culprit, Lance Easley. He was one of the replacement referees in the 2012-2013 season during the NFL referee...
The Seattle Seahawks 12th man will have the spotlight on them in week 2 of the NFL season when the Seahawks host the 49ers in the first of their two epic tilts to be featured on Sunday night football.
During that September 15 matchup, Seahawks fans at CenturyLink Field will try to break the Guinness World Record for “loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium.”
A Seahawks fan group...
On September 15, the Seahawks will open up their home schedule against their now-hated divisional foe, the San Francisco 49ers. There's no doubt the stadium will be rockin', but just how loud will they be? Thanks to the fan organization Volume 12, we'll know.
According to the group's Facebook page, Guinness has accepted their application to monitor the noise...
Seattle Seahawks fans are known to bring the noise, but can they be the loudest in sports?
