Celebrities Sound Off About NFL’s Replacement Refs

Posted Tuesday September 25, 2012 3:15 PM GMT

Monday Night Football was extra crazy last night (September 24) as a group of replacement referees definitely screwed the pooch during the Seattle Seahawks vs Green Bay Packers game.

An erroneous call made by the substitute refs ended up giving Seattle the win when Green Bay should have in fact clinched the victory.

And many famous folks took to their Twitter accounts to express their reactions, many hoping the current referee lockout would come to an end soon.

Chris Rock wrote, "If you're holding your baby & I walk up and hug it, according to the NFL replacement refs, you have to give me your baby. #MNF [Green Bay],” while Mark Cuban noted, "I would love to see what my reaction would be if a Mavs game ended like #MNF. #Expensive#NBAtime.”

President Barack Obama even weighed in- "NFL fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs' lockout is settled soon,” and LeBron James opined, "These replacement refs gotta go man!! Packers just got game took from them. I LOVE NFL football too much to see this type of work. I simply just LOVE the NFL too much to see these mistakes. I'm sick like I just played for the Packers."
