Talking #ThingsBetterThanReplacementRefs

In the movie The Replacements, quarterback Shane Falco (played by Keanu Reeves) and a group of washed-up football players win the hearts of fans while suiting up for the fictional Washington Sentinels during a league-wide strike.

After the events of Monday night, itís safe to say that fans wonít be rallying behind the NFLís real-life replacement officials anytime soon (unless, maybe, you're a Seahawks fan).

With time expiring in the game between Green Bay and Seattle, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw up a Hail Mary into the end zone. Though it looked as if Packers safety M.D. Jennings came down with the ball, replacement side judge Lance Easley ruled Seattle receiver Golden Tate to be in possession of the ball, giving Seattle a controversial 14-12 win.

Immediately, NFL fans blew up Twitter with expressions of their disgust. Some took an angry look at the replacement officials, while others took a more comical perspective on the call.
