The Green Bay Packers got hosed last night because the regular NFL referees are in a labor dispute with the NFL owners and are not working. Instead, a bunch of high school and small college referees are doing the pro games, and they aren’t very good. They made a couple of ludicrous calls, including one on the final play of the game that wrongfully handed victory to the Seattle Seahawks. That’s a shame. But it’s laughable that Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker asked for the real refs to return and then insisted that it wasn’t a pro-union comment. Pay the professionals, who happen to be unionized, or horrible calls will continue to happen.
