Seattle Beats Green Bay On Most Controversial Call In NFL History
The controversy surrounding the NFL’s replacement referees has reached a boiling point. Did you catch Monday night when the refs gave the game to the Seattle Seahawks on a bogus call?
It seems now that the replacement referees are affecting the outcome of the games. Last nightSeattlequarterback Russell Wilson threw up a Hail Mary pass that appeared to be intercepted byGreen Bay’s M.D. Jennings.Seattle’s Golden Tate had his arm in the mix.
One official signaled touchdown while another seemed to call it a touchback forGreen Bay, meaning the pass was intercepted. Eventually the refs ruled it was a touchdown, giving the Seahawks the game.
How in the world was this called a touchdown? After the controversial call, both teams left the field for nearly 10-minute delay before coming back out for the extra point.
