The Twitter world was abuzz at the end of Monday Night Football after the replacement refs made a controversial call at the end of the game.
It appeared that the Green Bay Packers got an interception at the end of the game, but the refs gave a touchdown to the Seattle Seahawks. There was also a blatant offensive pass interference on Seahawks receiver Golden Tate who eventually was credited with the touchdown catch. It was a bad night overall for the officials, but this call put it over the edge.
The NFL recently told players and coaches to back off of the replacement refs, but Monday’s night debacle had players reacting via Twitter. Here are some of their reactions.
Wow! Sad day in the league
