You’ve seen the video by now. I won’t pretend that there’s anyone out there who hasn’t. Green Bay Packers defensive back M.D. “20/20” Jennings clearly intercepted Russell Wilson’s hail mary pass as the clock expired in last night’s Monday Night Football game against the Seattle Seahawks. Even my brother, a diehard Seahawks fan, texted me as the world was going nuts that the league’s replacement refs should be fired. It was amazing, to say the least, and I can’t even imagine how I’d react if I were a Packers fan.I think Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy summed it all up quite nicely.“It was awful. Just look at the replay. And then the fact that it was reviewed, it was awful,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers succinctly summed it up. “That’s all I’m going to say about it.”Packers coach Mike McCarthy was equally concise. “Don’t ask me a question about the officials,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like that in all my years in football.That said, Ape already did a great job

In a regular week, these would be some of the top headlines.Week 3, however, was not a regular week. One play of the Seattle Seahawks game against the Green Bay Packers has stolen the spotlight from the other three teams in the...
By now, we are all aware of the mayhem that is surrounding last night’s Packers-Seahawks game. The Seahawks won a game on a last-minute heave to the end zone, where pass interference should have been called on Golden Tate, and it was pretty clear that the Seahawks did not have possession of the ball in the end zone.
Packers players, players league-wide, fans, and pretty much everyone...
Right now, it’s safe to say there’s no love lost between NFL fans and Commissioner Roger Goodell. Everything came to an apex on Monday night, when the replacement referees — who were already drawing ire thanks to being thrown into the biggest stage in the world, a stage they were in no way prepared for — [...]The post For Pro Sports Commissioners, It’s Lonely At The Top...
The controversial ending of Monday night's Packers-Seahawks game caused nearly a half-billion dollars to change hands between Packers bettors and Seahawks bettors.
A Wisconsin politician Tweets commissioner Roger Goodell's phone number, saying this season will be a "joke" if a deal isn't struck with the real referees. Meanwhile, the Packers aren't the only ones ripping the league and the replacement refs 140 characters at a time.
Roger Goodell needs to end this lock out with the real referees before someone gets hurt!
Roger Goodell and the NFL has begun levying fines against the coaches for mistreating the replacement referees, starting with Denver Head Coach, John Fox and Defensive Coordinator, Jack Del Rio, $30,000 and $25,000, respectively.

When the bounty suspensions were handed down by Roger Goodell this summer and the New Orleans Saints found out they were going to be without head coach Sean Payton for the season -- and without assistant head coach (and obvious choice for interim coach) Joe Vitt for the first six games -- I promise you that more than a few of the Saints players thought, "No problem."
The confusion on the field should stop with this deal.
Finally. After three poorly officiated weeks, the NFL and their locked out officials have reached a tentative deal which will allow the NFL to get back to normal on the field.
The referees union has not voted on it yet but NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has lifted the lockout so the regular officials can work tonights Browns...

The NFL said it planned to have regular refs work Thursday night's Cleveland-Baltimore game.
With Commissioner Roger Goodell at the table, the sides concluded two days of...
The "Monday Night Mugging." Like all notoriously controversial plays, this play needs a nickname. So it won't be forgotten. So it goes down as a black mark, as an asterisk, in the annals of NFL history.
In fact, if the NFL has any integrity, they should retroactively change the result of the Packers-Seahawks game tonight. The job of the NFL is to ensure the...
Replacement refs in the NFL have officially reached a boiling point after a controversial call on Monday night’s Week Three game between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks, in which Seattle surprisingly and controversially won off of a last-second hail mary.
