If you didn't watch Monday Night Football, you missed out an amazing game. Mostly because of serial missed or flubbed calls by the replacement referees. The last call probably should have been "interception by Green Bay Packers." Instead it was, "Game-winning touchdown by Seattle Seahawks." The entirety of Wisconsin is currently rioting, I hear.
The regular refs are locked out and the NFL owners are playing hardball and using replacement refs. I'll let Brit Hume explain:
Replacement refs doing the best they can. That's the problem. Sort of like President Obama.
IowaHawk had the tweet of the night with this brilliant insight:
NFL replacement refs > US news media.
Ken Gardner made me laugh with this one:
Roger Goddell on that game ending play: "it was just a bump in the road." Okay, he didn't really say that.
And RB Pundit says he's found a common enemy:
BTW… if you’re upset with the NFL right now, thank collective bargaining.
Well, or monopoly power.
My condolences to Packer fans. To be honest, I've found these replacement games to be oddly entertaining. I know that's probably the wrong thing to say right now, but there's something so compelling about fiascos.
