Who would've thought that Seattle's 12th man wore stripes?

The replacement refs were bound to cost a team a game sooner or later.

If it had to happen, I'm glad it happened on MNF - now Goodell has to do something.

what a disgrace.

Fans should boycott the NFL!!. Nothing will happen until they feel in in their pocket books

8 sacks. "Game-preserving" drive with 1:45 left: 3plays -2 yards.
Agreed, really good teams control their own destiny and don't let it come down to something like this.

Anyone really think no team but the Saints had some sort of head hunting system in place?

I played High School, my brother played HS and college ball and I can assure you if you were caught not head hunting the coach would put you in a drill in the next practice and make you wish you had.

Goodell is a hypocrite and I'm sorry that Packer's fans are paying the price for it.

If my being a High School player doesn't qualify me to speak on the issue, remember who is officiating these Pro games.

My beloved Arizona Cardinals are 3-0 for the first time since 1974 which is the first time I saw them play at old Busch stadium in St. Louis.

Same here. I apologize to the Packer fans even though it was about time one went our way.

The league should be boycotted till they employ Ref's that can administer and officiate the games.

What a JOKE they have made of themselves born of their own arrogance. Fans should reject what they are presenting us.

Do not attend, listen or watch another game till this issue is settled. Spread the word and send a message.

As a team owner, I'd expect you can fix this.

We're counting on you, Hodag.

I didn't catch the end of the game, sounds like GB was screwed royally.

That sucks, it was inevitable as you say.

What sucks too is ESPN, once again, won't call out their "broadcast partners." Mike & Mike this morning were giving the company line, "regular refs cost teams too... remember Ed Hochuli..."

Yeah, we do remember Ed Hochuli- as it was such an infamous incident. Not the norm for the experienced refs and crews. It is quickly becoming the norm for the replacements.

Jurgen's solution--Boycott NFL gear. Don't buy anything for your team. Still go, hell your tickets are probably paid for. Still yell at the TV, but no new caps, shirts, thongs, beer openers, jerseys etc until the strike is resolved.

I haven't watched a pro football game since the Super Bowl. I'm not likely to, either, until the labor dispute with the refs is settled and they return to work.

Oh well - shit happens. Every NFL fan can name 3 or 4 games where their team got hosed and they ended up losing the game. The only difference is that this one was pretty blatant and under a big replacement microscope.

The only people in GB that are happy about how the game ended is Brian Bulaga and the offensive line coach. The O-Line keeps playing like that and Rodgers will be on IR by week 6.

McCarthy will keep them focused and on track, but I'm pretty sure he kicked his dog when he got home last night.
