It might be embarrassing for the NFL, and infuriating to Packers fans.
But at least it’s good for a few laughs.
The comedians are out in force to pick the league’s low-hanging fruit, and the replacement refs are an easy meal.
The New York Post did it in the way only the New York Post can, photoshopping a picture of a seeing-eye dog next to a ref with the screaming headline “Oh say can’t you see? Blind refs ruining America’s game.”
Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is also taking to Twitter looking for the best description for the final play of the Packers-Seahawks game, the Golden Tate–M.D. Jennings “simultaneous catch.” After initially suggesting “The Catch?, The Inaccurate Reception, and The Fail Mary,” Kluwe came back to report that “Fail Mary” had a sizable lead.
But he also mentioned “Golden Taint” had emerged as a write-in candidate.
We anxiously (we think) anticipate that on the cover of the Post.
