Talk radio lit up over Packers' highly-disputed loss in Seattle

Talk radio lit up over Packers' highly-disputed loss in Seattle

By the WTMJ News Team. CREATED Sep 25, 2012

MILWAUKEE - Green Bay Packers fans are expressing their disgust with the outcome of the Seattle Seahawks much-disputed 14-12 win over the Packers Monday night.

M.D. Jennings of the Packers apparently intercepted the game's final pass of the game, but it was ruled both on the field and in the NFL replay booth as a touchdown catch by Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate.

Fans lit up talk shows across the area.

If you saw the play, if you saw the highlight, you probably have an opinion, perhaps like those expressed on Newsradio 620 WTMJ:

"This is just disheartening.  I haven't felt this sick since the strike seasons of the 80's of fotball and baseball," said one caller.

"I'm as frustrated as anyone else how this game was called," uttered another.

"It's one thing to miss the call on the field.  It's another thing to go look at it in the booth and then get it wrong.  That says they are completely unaware of the rule book," explained another.

When Packers Coach Mike McCarthy was asked about the final play, he avoided the controversy - and possibly avoided fines some of his players may ahve to pay - by refusing to discuss it.

"Don't ask me a question about the officials, all right?  We'll cut to the chase right there."

Governor Walker asked for the return of union officials, while Milwauke Democratic State Senator Jon Erpenbach tweeted out what was reportedly commissioner Roger Goodell's office phone number in New York City.
