As the NFL continues to deal with the aftermath of Monday night’s game, the NFL has to deal with angry players in the Green Bay locker room.
“Got f–ked by the refs.. Embarrassing. Thanks nfl,” Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang wrote on Twitter.
And then this: “F–k it NFL.. Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs.”
And then one without profanity: “Any player/coach in Seattle that really thinks they won that game has zero integrity as a man and should be embarrassed.”
Players, in theory, can be fined by the league office for criticizing the officiating. In this case, fining Lang would be the same as pouring bourbon onto a bonfire.
We expect more Packers players to chime in today and beyond. This isn’t the kind of anger that goes away after a good night’s sleep.
