TweetIs it Karma? The Green Bay Packers are robbed by the replacement refs versus the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football. The play came on a Hail Mary throw from QB Russell Wilson to WR Golden Tate. Was it a horrible call by the replacement referees? YES! There is no doubt this was one of the worst calls in recent history, the tuck rule comes to mind as another. As a Giants fan who watched the Green Bay Packers get call after call during a regular season game, I have to wonder if this is Karma. I get no satisfaction from it, as the video below shows Jennings clearly caught what seemed to be an INT. To add insult to injury Tate had just pushed #37 Sam Shields to the ground in order to get better position. That should have been offensive pass interference. Video: Hail Mary Pass Seattle Seahawks Vs Green Bay Packers MNF Karma Referees Helped Green Bay Packers in Week 13 Versus The NY Giants I wrote an article last season after week 13 when the Packers were the beneficiaries of a bunch of calls from real NFL referees. The article: Evidence the Refs helped Packers Beat The Giants clearly showed how biased refs were. That article received thousands of hits including 1,300+ Facebook shares which is quite a bit for a small blog/site like mine. Fans were upset and amazed how one side a game could go. But it just did not stop there, the Green Bay were protected by regular NFL referees last season regardless who they played. It's almost as if the NFL was going to make sure the Packers were in the Super Bowl. Again there is no satisfaction from a fans perspective watching a game end on a bad call but Giants fans lived through it last season on several occasions. Real NFL referees must have been sitting and laughing as they watched the end of this Monday Night Football game. Talk about getting the upper hand or leverage, if this doesn't light a fire under Roger Goodell, nothing will. It's a horrible loss for the Packers but it should not be an excuse or a lingering issue. The New York Giants didn't allow the game against Green Bay to stop them from winning a Super Bowl.
