The NFL has never been more embarrassed more in it’s history then it was tonight. Social media has been blowing up ever since a controversial call caused the Green Bay Packers a win in the Monday night showdown against the Seattle Seahawk’s.

T.J. Lang, G, #70 for the Packers tweeted this immediately following the game: “Got (censor) by the refs.. Embarrassing. Thanks nfl”

Lang then followed that tweet with another by saying: “(censor) it NFL.. Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs.”

All of this controversy is coming after the NFL replacement referees made a game changing decision that cost the Packers a win. It was the final play of the game, the ball was hiked and the clock hit zero when Seahawk’s quarterback Russell Wilson heaved a hail mary down field to receiver Golden Tate.

The play then was reviewed and the officials called the play a touchdown. Which in fact was not, the replacement officials got the play wrong which resulted the outcome of a game. Players, coaches and NFL fans are outraged and are hoping that what happened tonight will bring back to the original referees.

You can see in the video below the call that resulted in a loss for the Packers. One referee called a touchdown and another gave a touchback signal. The play went under review and the refs still got the call wrong. You can see why and how the NFL world is outraged.
