    Dear NFL

    Give the real refs whatever it is they are asking for, this cannot continue...
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    There were quite a few questionable calls, and no calls, in the first 55 minutes of the game, but that whole final sequence, starting with the bogus roughing the passer call that nullified the interception, was just bad.

    I went into the game leaning towards wanting GB to win, but by the 6th or 7th sack of Rogers, I was rooting for the Seahawks to break the single game sack record.

    Well, we are seeing what a bunch of thugs pro football players are. They are always trying to get away with holding calls, they are always putting cheap shots on people, and they want to start fights. Then throw in the hideous looking long-hairs out there, and it kind of looks like a prison league. Whoever said pro sports figures are not people for your children to immulate couldn't be more right IMHO.

    These guys start in kindergarten and dedicate their whole lives to being good enough to make it in the NFL. Their skill level is truly amazing. Its a brutal game. Tempers flare, fights ensue. Thats why we love it. The vetted refs keep the game under control, these replacements are making the game a laughing stock. As far as the dredds, who cares? Its a phase, just like all the mullets they wore in the 70's. You have just as many pros that behave properly as you do morons that act like theyre in the hood

    It's painful to watch. I think they reviewed 15 plays in the chiefs game and they got all of them wrong on the field. It seriously took 3 1/2 hours to play the regular time, not including the ot session.

    Players do what they are paid to do...anything they can to win. Cheating or not, that's what they are supposed to do. Lance Armstrong, baseball steroid users, etc. As far as them being thugs, you can't change who you are and your upbringing. Most of them that was the only way they were going to get an education and break the cycle.

    Tell the real refs that the rest of the country has defined contribution plans for their retirement. GM has defined benefit, and that's why it's now Government Motors.

    Take the NFL offer, and get back to frickin' work, you lazy turtles!

    My beloved Packers were totally screwed last night. Granted, the game should not have been that close. However, Russell Wilson just became the first QB ever to throw a game winning interception in the end zone. What a bunch of BS! And how could the replay officials not see the pick on the replay? They're the original booth/replay officials, not the scabs that are on the field. They've been saying all along that once the terrible officiating results in a team losing to a horrible call that all he11 will break loose. Let's hope it does for the sake of the game! I bet those refs from last night don't get sent to Green Bay to do a game.
