You may remember that nine days ago, replacement referees somehow blew an easy call that cost the Green Bay Packers a victory. The error also happened to shift hundreds of millions of dollars in gambling money, as the touchdown call changed the moneyline and spread winners.
There’s nothing like a crisp infographic to reduce meaningful dialogue to a pocket-sized piece of paper, and we have that here concerning the replacement refs. The entire blogosphere wouldn’t shut up about them for almost a month, and we weren’t immune to discussing those (non) officials ad nauseam either. But we didn’t realize exactly how much the refs dominated the conversation.
Athletes are still happy about the triumphant return of the real referees. Share in their joy, won’t you? Here are our morning words of wisdom. Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
This is not in poor taste. This is hilarious and you should watch it. All that’s missing is Josh Groban, but Sarah McLachlan does just fine.
With Twitter set absolutely ablaze the last 20 hours at the prospect of our beloved refs retaking NFL fields this week, there was no shortage of players, current and former, airing out their jubilation.

This week we cover the Seahawks-Packers minor mishap, Glennsanity and office pooping. The NSFW podcast, after the jump.
Last night’s Seahawks-Packers kerfluffle has broken the internet, basically – not only on the sports-bloggers-being-angry front, but on the meme front as well. We’ve come across plenty of good ones, and have decided to compile all the best from this morning’s aftermath. And although the replacement refs have been the subject of plenty of meme-scorn already, take a moment to sift through our roundup of the 11 best Packers-Seahawks memes.
Bill Hofheimer, an ESPN PR suit for Monday Night Football, the World Cup and NFL studio shows, threw out quite the interesting tweet earlier this morning. Instead of ruining the fun, we’ll just let him take it away, after the jump.
Well, it finally happened. The NFL’s replacement officials have made a monumental mistake on the national stage, and it’s cost a team a game — and, potentially, a playoff spot. There are a lot of reasons why last night’s screwjob in Seattle is a big deal, but here are three.
Betting is one of football’s largest draws. If you’ve ever seen a guy at a bar in an Aaron Rodgers jersey scream at Andy Dalton, who’s playing the Redskins, you know what we’re talking about. The spread of last night’s Packers-Seahawks game closed at -3, with the Packers as the favorite. That final touchdown, which we’ve talked a bit about, actually swung the winner, betting-wise.
