Packers T.J. Lang

Curses Out Refs

Dares NFL to Fine Him

9/25/2012 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Green Bay Packers
guard T.J. Lang must love throwing away money -- 'cause after last night's disastrous ending to the Packers-Seahawks game, he blasted the refs with a tweet that's gonna cost him a ton o' cheese.

In case you missed what EVERYONE is talking about ... Monday Night Football ended with the biggest blown call in NFL history -- the Packers intercepted a Seahawks Hail Mary pass in the endzone, but the replacement refs (unbelievably) said Seattle's Golden Tate simultaneously caught it ... thereby screwing the Packers.

Lang immediately hit up his Twitter page after the game, saying ... "Got f**ked by the refs.. Embarrassing. Thanks nfl"

Knowing full well that tweet would cost him ... Lang followed up with, "F**k it NFL.. Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs."

No word yet from Commissioner Roger Goodell's office on just how much Lang will be fined -- it WILL be a lot. 

But considering how badly the refs blew the call, we gotta ask ...

This is getting old. The NFL Players union is to blame. The idea each on field element must have their own union has the American union founders rolling in their graves. Let's call it what it is, scabs on the field with scabs.

Anyone knows that couldn't have happened. Seahawks never catch *anything*, whether it's intentional or accidentally. (Yes I'm in Wa and can say this- they suck!)

TJ Lang-
Less Tweeting.
More blocking.
Seattle had 8 sacks in the first half. That might have had something to do with the loss, don't you think?

Those refs were drunk or something. The GREEN BAY PACKERS SHOULD HAD TAKEN THE WIN! I AGREE WITH TJ LANG AND HE SHOULD NOT BE PUNISHED FOR IT. maybe the NFL shouldn't of hired such bad replacement refs.

This was the right call. Not sure why everyone is so pissed off about it. There IS a rule about simultaneous catches, which this clearly was. Both had possession when their feet hit the ground. In this case, the "tie" goes to the throwing team, not the defense. Suck it up Green Bay. Thems the rules, and if it happened the other way, you'd all be lauding the refs for their great call.

TJ sure was not in position to make this call, they both came down with the ball, joint custody belongs to Offense, Touchdown,.....who in their right mind could say for sure who was pushing off prior to the catch as everyone was.

They won't fine him. The NFL has already messed up with the all alternate referee thingy this long + they have also officially confirmed that it was a bad call. If they fine him, they know (or should) that they will be drown in hate tweets and emails.

NO WAY IT WAS A BLOWN CALL! Having watched in slow motion I can say the call was made correctly. It wasn't simultaneous possesion. Jennings clearly had his hands on the ball first, BUT both his feet were in the air. While his feet were still in the air Tate got both his hands on the ball AND both feet on the ground. Jennings only had one foot on the ground by the time that happened. BY RULE, the only time they can call it an interception is if Jennings had both feet on the ground. There were plenty of bad calls that night, but that last one absolutely was not one of them.
