GREEN BAY, Wis. Though Packers coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers handled their post-game press conferences with some restraint, the same was not true for a few of Green Bay's players on Twitter.
After the Packers lost on Monday night in Seattle against the Seahawks on a last-second hail-mary touchdown, a play that replays conclusively showed was called incorrectly by the NFL's replacement referees, tweets came pouring in from the locker room.
It started with Packers left guard T.J. Lang, who wrote, "Got fed by the refs.. Embarrassing. Thanks nfl."
Later, Lang added, "F it NFL, Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs."
Soon, other players shared their take on the situation via Twitter.
Packers starting right guard Josh Sitton had a series of expletive-filled tweets.
"That was bullsh," Sitton wrote. "This is getting ridiculous! The NFL needs to get the refs back bfr we strike and they make no money!"
