As expected, the sports world has yet to stop buzzing about Hail Mary-gate. Social media sites and sports blogs have been overtaken by the call that will likely define the 2012 replacement officials. Amid a see of angry tweets from players and fans and cries for the NFL to end the madness, there have been a few comments that stand out above all the rest.
After flying back to Green Bay and sleeping on the heart-breaking loss, Packers tight end Tom Crabtree summed up the controversial evening the best way he could:
We’ve heard players say the officials are affecting the integrity of the game and others reportedly telling them to kill themselves, but no player, coach or fan has used a better metaphor to describe the situation than Crabtree. If someone crapped on your prized painting, you would not be pleased. The NFL and it’s replacement officiating crew dropped a steaming pile right on Green Bay’s canvas on Monday night.
