Arizona Cardinals react to referees in Seahawks vs. Packers Monday Night Football game
And after the game ended on a controversial game-winning touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate - that appeared to be intercepted by the Packers' M.D. Jennings - several Redbirds weren't exactly rejoicing with their division brethren.
Here's cornerback Patrick Peterson's thoughts on his official Twitter page, @RealPeterson21.
Com'on can we please get the real refs back. Destroying the game that we all grew to love. WOW!!!!!!— Patrick Peterson (@RealPeterson21) September 25, 2012
Peterson's defensive teammate, Darnell Dockett, also wasn't shy on sharing his feelings regarding the NFL's replacement officials on his Twitter account, @ddockett.
This is what the NFL has come down to, &yet they tell you to respect the shield! Lol. But they'll try to fine us for everything thing we do.— DARNELL DOCKETT (@ddockett) September 25, 2012
And fresh off his game-changing, 93-yard fumble return for a touchdown, safety James Sanders (@JamesSanders36) shared his teammates sentiments following the final play in Seattle.
The NFL players and the fans of the NFL deserve better then this!!!!— James Sanders (@JamesSanders36) September 25, 2012
Then there's safety Rashad Johnson, who decided to call out the Packers' offensive line. Aaron Rodgers was sacked eight times on the night. The Cardinals play in Green Bay Week 9.
Man tell the Packers lineman to keep their QB up right and this wouldn't have even mattered! Take some responsibility on ur own faults!! #9— Rashad Johnson (@49foyamind49) September 25, 2012
The controversial final play in the Seattle-Green Bay game marks the end of a wild weekend in the NFL and highlights the on-going divide between the league and its players regarding the current in-game officials.
As ESPN senior analyst Chris Mortensen reported, commissioner Roger Goodell and league negotiators met for 10 hours with the NFL Referees Association in New York on Sunday. Both sides are still far apart on a new CBA agreement, and as of now the replacement officials are scheduled to work through Week 5.
