I just got my grades back and I'm excited to say I'm graduating.
After tonight's debacle by the replacement officials I don't know if I can continue watching the NFL anymore, at least until the real refs are striking.
First, the refs called Packers cornerback Sam Shields for pass interference when he was trying to play the ball with the intended receiver all over him. It was the worst pass interference call I've ever seen and I've been watching football for 30 years.
Next, and this REALLY pissed me off, at the end of the game, Seahawks quaterback Russle Wilson threw up a Hail Mary pass and M.D. Jennings, a Packers cornerback (I think) came down with it. However, Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate grabbed at it a few times, trying to pry it free. It was the strangest play I've ever seen, and while I've always believed something like that was possible I had never seen it and I had always wondered what it would look like. Anyway, Tate was awarded the game-winning touchdown.
That's what I, and the vast majority of fans, don't get. Even 60% of Seahawks fans. Jennings landed on his back on top of Tate. Jennings had the ball clutched tight to his chest. He had full control of the ball, and by rule, it's considered a catch of you land inbounds with full control of the ball. The receiver had is hands on the ball, yes, but he didn't have possession.
I'd also like to point out that before Jennings and Tate had their scuffle with the ball, Tate shoved Shields out of the way, which should've been ruled offensive pass interference.
Furthermore, you should see some of the tweets by Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang:TJ Lang wrote:

Any player/coach in Seattle that really thinks they won that game has zero integrity as a man and should be embarrassed.
It is because of the sloppy officiating that I can honestly say I'm not sure if I'll be watching next week.
Pat Summitt is retiring from her women's basketball head coaching position at the University of Tennessee, according to the Associated Press.
She will serve as a mentor to Holly Warlick, who was promoted from assistant coach to head coach of the Lady Vols.
Summitt is the sport's winningest coach. She supports Warlick, who has been her assistant for 27 years and is a former three-time All-American who played for Summitt, as her replacement and would like to see the success of the program continue.
Summitt was diagnosed with early onset dementia-Alzheimer's type last year, and the illness forced her to give coaching responsibilities to her assistants. Warlick handled games and postgame interviews, while the entire staff did the bulk of practices and recruiting.
Summitt, who wanted to continue coaching as long as possible even with her illness, wanted to prove to the world that it was possible to function and had been going as business as usual.
She finishes her career with an overall record of 1,098-207, 16 Southeastern Conference championships and 16 SEC tournament titles.
