Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers weighed in on last night's debacle in Seattle on his weekly radio show today. Among his quotes: "First of all, I've got to do something that the NFL is not going to do, and I have to apologize to the fans." Rodgers also said: "The game is being tarnished by an NFL that obviously cares more about saving some money than having the integrity of the game diminished a little bit." Finally, there was this: "This is an NFL that gambled on some low-level referees, including the guy who makes the most important call last night, who has never had any professional experience."
More NFL Replacement Referee MadnessIt was only a matter of time before politicians weighed in on the NFL chaos. President Obama sent out a cookie-cutter tweet while (shocker) Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker called for a return of the regular refs. Meanwhile, we now have a replacement version of Google, a replacement referee drinking game and a semi-pro football league team holding "Replacement Referee Night."
Monday MadnessEveryone is still talking about last night's Packers-Seahawks game. Where does the last-second debacle from the replacement officials rank on the list of the 25 most memorable moments in Monday Night Football History? Complex.com has a look.
