— TJ Lang (@TJLang70) September 25, 2012

— TJ Lang (@TJLang70) September 25, 2012

That was ********. This is getting ridiculous! The NFL needs to get the refs back bfr we strike and they make no money!

— josh sitton (@jsitton71) September 25, 2012

The nfl needs to come to gb and apologize to us for ******* us! These refs r bums!

— josh sitton (@jsitton71) September 25, 2012

Golden tate is full of **** too. Saying he clearly caught that is embarrassing!******* jokers!

— josh sitton (@jsitton71) September 25, 2012

13th man beat us tonight.

— Tom Crabtree (@TCrabtree83) September 25, 2012

Seattle u can’t feel good about tht win… Because y’all really lost… The refs give y’all the game…

— Nick Collins (@nickthepick36) September 25, 2012

U can’t even be truly happy as a player to win in such a cheating fashion. Sum funky wins u take but this ain’t them kind. Pay the real refs

— Desmond bishop (@Desbishop55) September 25, 2012

Honestly, It’s not about winning or losing here, it’s the integrity of this game we love to play/watch. Hate 2 question it! Pack still good!

BREAKING -JaMarcus Russell eyeing return to NFL after discovering games can be won by throwing interceptions. yfrog.com/oevljedtj” Lolol

— Desmond bishop (@Desbishop55) September 25, 2012

It wasn’t just all Packer’s players though, other NFL players had plenty to say as well.

Refs single handedly blew this one…

— Reggie Bush (@reggie_bush) September 25, 2012

Yeeeee! Score 1 for the Good Guys. Way to Go Stripes! Always good seeing a fellow WR get credit for a TD…….ON A INTERCEPTION. Yesss

— Stevie Johnson (@StevieJohnson13) September 25, 2012

Just saw that catch. **** just got real for Roger and the replacements.

— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) September 25, 2012

This is all I ask of the refs. Read the rule book. Its all you have to do all week. At least know the damn rules and how to implement them.

— Nick Sundberg (@NickSundberg) September 25, 2012

Roger has got some explaining to do tomorrow lol #pleasepaytherefs

— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) September 25, 2012

If I was the old refs I would holdout for more money after this lol

— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) September 25, 2012

Drama. Great for business. Godspeed, Ed Hochuli.

— Arian Foster (@ArianFoster) September 25, 2012

The problematic thing is that after the amount of coverage this is getting, the real referees could take Roddy White’s advice.  But even more than that, there are plenty of people that are weighing in the situation, making it even worse for the NFL.  Having this happen on Monday Night Football to the Packers was probably in their top three worst case scenarios.  I’m still surprised that Twitter hasn’t exploded as a result.

Game wasn’t over & there were on field interviews & a mascot on goal line. AWESOME. Packers should have played extra point nude in protest

— John Buccigross (@Buccigross) September 25, 2012

What robbery…what a fraud the NFL just perpetrated on the Green Bay Packers…

— Michael Wilbon (@RealMikeWilbon) September 25, 2012

Other than Tate pushing Shields to the ground and Jennings making the interception, the refs really nailed it.

— Dan Shulman (@DShulman_ESPN) September 25, 2012

And… Here’s the officiating apocalypse that was 3 weeks coming.

— Bill Simmons (@sportsguy33) September 25, 2012

$50 million. $100 million. Open your checkbook tomorrow, Mr. Goodell.

— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) September 25, 2012

I believe we have reached the proverbial tipping point.

— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) September 25, 2012

These games are a joke.

— Troy Aikman (@TroyAikman) September 25, 2012

Ref who signaled TD does JUCO football and basketball in California. One who didn’t has reffed Big 12, arena and NFL Europe.

— Stefan Fatsis (@stefanfatsis) September 25, 2012

And the wonderfully placed shameless plug for the Ryder Cup:

All @nfl fans watch the Ryder Cup this week, we got no refs. #USA

— bubba watson (@bubbawatson) September 25, 2012

Oh man — Adam Schefter got text from an NFL exec who wants League to go to NHL War Room format — all controversial TDs review by League HQ

— Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) September 25, 2012

This would be an absolutely incredible change for the future because of this one play.

If only some of these execs and coaches weren’t mandated to keep their mouths publicly shut on officials, you would be enlightened.

— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) September 25, 2012

I am 100% behind the Packers players and the other NFL players on this one.  The officiating has been a complete joke and a black mark on the league.  If you were watching Sportscenter tonight, you would have heard what Trent Dilfer and Steve Young had to say and they were on point.  The league prides itself on the integrity of the game and these officials are destroying it.  They don’t know what the rules are, specifically what pass interference is, and it is time for them to go.  They’ve been reffing Division-2 and Division-3 college games for a reason; these guys couldn’t even get Division-1 jobs.  The game is too fast for them to deal with, and they have no confidence in themselves.

I’m still having trouble believing what has transpired this weekend, it almost feels like a dream.  It has been truly mind boggling and tomorrow will be even more interesting and entertaining.  ESPN is going to be running an all day special where they do nothing but talk about the play and beat it like a dead horse. Not only that, but we have many different opinion columns for hundreds of thousands of sports writers and bloggers across the country to look forward to.  Everybody should buckle up, because it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Packers Lineman, TJ Lang Goes Off on NFL Replacement Refs After MNF Debacle

The NFL replacement refs have taken quite a bit of criticism after repeatedly showing just how “in over their heads” they are. I personally don’t blame them, they’re doing the best they can.
