Did anyone else see the Packer Seahawk game tonight? Naturally, as a Cheesehead, I'm absolutely pissed at the refs and the NFL. First, there was blatant pass interference, and the Packer CB Jennings clearly had possession of the ball before Seahawks' Tate. Your thoughts on the game and the ref situation? How soon before this lockout is settled?

As a Seahawks fan I'm glad they brought home a win tonight, but not like this. They definitely should not have won. I'm embarrassed to call myself a Seahawks fan right now. I hope they can learn from the mistakes made tonight, fix things, come back and rock it this season.

Don't be embarrassed to be a Seahawks fan. They played a great game. It was down to the refs. Still, I'm glad to hear you didn't think it was the right call.

Yeah but even though it wasn't up to the coaches, it still doesn't feel right. The scoreboard said we won the game but everyone knows we lost, and the Seahawks and their fans are gonna be looked at as cheaters and liars for a while.

It was absolutely horrible, the Packers should've that game, plain and simple, but nope the referees didn't even see the Offensive Pass Interference and the fact that Jennings had intercepted the ball. I'm a Packer fan btw

beyond horrible, not sure if any term can fit to what happened. Either way the white hat is a douche and should never ref a single football game ever again.

Once again, I wouldn't call that cheating. Sure, there was the pas interference, but that can be missed. Between everything I've seen on facebook (among all my Packer fan friends) and I haven't seen one thing badmouthing anything on the Seahawks. They played their game. This is on the NFL.

I saw that play as it happened last night and all I've been thinking since then is how crappy the refing is this year. I have never seen officiating as bad as I have seen in the past few weeks of the season. Last night's play to me looked like a pick and I thought for sure they'd call interference or something but not a touchdown! That didn't look to me much like a touchdown. I couldn't believe what I saw last night and I can understand why Packer fans are upset and I would feel the same way if that had happend to my Browns.

I am still shaking my head over the whole thing, I've never seen anything like this before. At least with the referees as bad as they are...

I like the player that tweeted something to the effect that Foot Locker called and needs them back in the stores.

Looks like a case of the Norwegian referee syndrome to me.

Anyway, even the NFL admitted the Packers should have won. I hate to see that kind if situation in any sport but unfortunately it happens.

You can't blame the players/coaches for that. I don't see how anyone could. The refs are to blame for not overturning a call in which there was 100% indisputable evidence that their initial ruling was wrong, and the NFL is to blame for standing by their call strictly as a means of covering their own asses. The Seahawks played a great game, and though they shouldn't have won it, the official outcome is final.

I saw the Packers and Seahawks game last night as a repeat (owing to the fact that Swedish television starts their live broadcasting at 2.30 AM Monday). I'm a Packers fan, and I've never seen such zealous officials. I agree w/ Near that these things happen.

Well it's over. The scabs are on their way back to the Foot Locker. We'll have the real refs by Thursday.
