Packers players cuss out replacement refs, NFL on Twitter after game
The Packers were livid after being robbed of a 12-7 victory over the Seahawks by the replacement officials who gave the Seattle a 14-12 win on a controversial call to end “Monday Night Football.” Offensive lineman T.J. Lang was the most vocal Packers player after the game, dropping f-bombs on Twitter:
Teammate Josh Sitton was just as profane:
Tight end Jermichael Finley sent a few tweets directly at the NFL:
And though they didn’t cuss, wide receiver Tom Crabtree and running back Alex Green got their point across as well as anyone else:
13th man beat us tonight.

Guess we kno the real meaning of 12th man, welp headed back to Gbay…it’s still #packernation

The “12th man” is the nickname for Seattle’s loud fans.
Who can blame the Packers players for their reactions? They just got a win taken away from them and are now 1-2 on the season.
And for T.J. Lang, this was easily a bigger kick in the nuts than the actual kick in the nuts he received last year.
