Crying Foul

Monday's match between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks came down to a 24-yard catch made by Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate — or was it an interception by a Green Bay defender? The incident is newest in this season's string of contested calls made by replacement referees, who are filling in because the NFL locked out its official refs in June after their contract expired. While two refs disagreed on the touchdown last night, the Seahawks were ultimately awarded the 14-12 win, a decision also upheld by the NFL on Tuesday, spurring the ire of NFL players and fans on Twitter. Britt Middleton
