Found September 27, 2012 on Ride The Pine:
I’m still trying to comprehend how the last play of the Green Bay Packers/Seattle Seahawks Monday Night Football Game was not ruled an interception. I’m also still trying to figure out why Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson married this. Most of the world would agree that these replacement officials have been bad for the game of football. But let me tell you a little secret.  The NFL doesn’t care.  All anyone is talking about is the NFL.  We are just a few days away from the start of the MLB Post Season and no one is talking two words about it.  Is it surprising that the REAL NFL officials signed a deal with the NFL after the debacle of Week 3?

NFL Gone Wild – Seahawks beat Packers in a circus (marred by the refs)

SCOTT JACOBS Mike McCarthy’s beleaguered look told you all you needed to know. The Seahawks had just kicked the extra point — after both Russell Wilson and coach Pete Carrol had been interviewed on the field nonetheless — with the Packers in disbelief at the call that officially clouded a season. Bizarre? Comical? Nothing like you’ve ever seen before? How about all of the...

Packers get beat by NFL replacement refs

In a game the announcers and pundits and retired referee commentators all agree the Packers won, the Pack lost due to several horrible calls by the replacement refs, but one in particular: the final Hail Mary pass by Seahawks QB Russell Wilson.

It was fourth and last chance, throw it up, and pray.

Time for a Change in the NFL

Monday night consisted of a very interesting matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks.  What we didn’t know, however, is that the Packers and Seahawks would also be faced off versus the referees.

Seahawks take down the Packers in a controversial finish

The NFL replacement refs have been the center of conversation for the past couple of weekends, and those conversations will certainly continue after the Seahawks beat the Packers in one of the most bizarre endings of a game you’ll ever see.
