Russell Wilson used the latest embarrassment by replacement officials to steal a win from the Green Bay Packers
That's right, you read the title correctly, the Seattle Seahawks beat the Green Bay Packers 14-12 when Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson threw a 24-yard interception that was ruled a touchdown as time expired. A replacement-official review of the score confirmed the complete dumpster fire and the Seahawks win was confirmed.
While the hope can be that the real officials will be back to work soon, the lasting image, for me at least, of the 2012 NFL Referee Lockout will be this - two officials making two different calls.
That's two national TV games in a row that have completely cluster-f****d by these guys. Do the regular guys miss calls? Yes. But at least they make a call and they make it with conviction. These guys are in way over their heads.
