Packers screwed by replacement refs: 'NFL needs to come to GB and apologize for fucking us' [VIDEO]

It's a touchdown! It's an interception! It's a... horrible call.
Last night, the Green Bay Packers were victimized by what may have been the single worst call in NFL history.

Leading 12-7 with seconds left, the Pack had to vend off a Seattle Seahawks' Hail Mary to secure the victory. And that they did, as defensive back M.D. Jennings clearly emerged from an end zone scrum with Seattle's Golden Tate with possession of the ball.

But two scab refs had contradicting interpretations  -- one signaled interception, while another somehow viewed the play as a Tate TD. The play, understandably, was reviewed, and in yet another replacement-ref head-scratcher, the head referee upheld the TD call and essentially granted a 14-12 victory to Seattle.

Here's the footage:



After the game, Packers players were irate. Clay Matthews shared NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's phone number on Facebook in a post that was quickly deleted. Offensive lineman TJ Lang took to Twitter and offered up these gems:

Lang's sentiment was echoed by fellow D-lineman Johnny Jolly:

But the most epic Twitter rant came courtesy of offensive lineman Josh Sitton:

As a Vikings fan, there's always an element of Schadenfreude when Green Bay loses. And as indignant as NFL fans are feeling this morning about the Goodell-backed replacement ref joke we've had to endure for three weeks, we gotta admit -- if it really was only a matter of time before an NFL team lost a game because of incompetent officiating, we're glad it happened to the now-tied-for-last-place Packers.

Packers are whiners. I feel no sympathy for them.

OVER REACTION. People get screwed constantly by the real refs. This play just happened to be at the end of the game and from refs that everyone has a short temper with. Remember 2010 Vikes v Pack when Shiancoe got robbed from a TD and the Pack went on to the playoffs and win the Superbowl? Remember last year in the playoffs when Greg Jennings obviously fumbled against the Giants but got away with it even after review? Granted that play didn't matter as much as they lost the game in many other ways anyways. 

 

Maybe Aaron Rogers shouldn't have been sacked 8 TIMES in the fist half of last night's game and the Pack wouldn't have to whine over this shitty call.

Get over it.....There has been millions of shitty calls, you see them every game! Which in fact screw over teams from winning most of the time. This time it happened at the buzzer so everyone is making way more fuss about it. Why is this bad call any different than any other bad call??? And this is a season game we are talking about, I've seen worse calls in playoff games that change the outcome of the game. My argument is that these BS bad calls happen way too often so lets talk about them all instead of just this one!

If you like that call then you must not like the game, or what sportsmanship is all about. Not only did he NOT catch the ball, he should have been called for offensive pass interference for pushing the other player before the ball came down. (No I am not a GB fan) Doesn't matter what the stats say. It will always be known that GB really won that one. Why would Seattle fans want that hanging over them. UGLY

The fact that you guys are actually agreeing and supporting the ref's call, only because you're Vikings fans, is depressing, and makes me lose faith in humanity that much faster.
