Nearly a full week after their controversial Monday night loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the offensive linemen of the Green Bay Packers, who gave up a woeful eight sacks of QB Aaron Rodgers, went out of their way to remind reporters how it was clearly the replacement officials who stole that game from the Packers.

“I still can’t believe what those scab refs did to us,” said Green Bay tackle Bryan Baluga, who alone surrounded three sacks of his quarterback, effectively ending multiple scoring opportunities for his team. “When they called that extremely close judgement call in favor of Seattle, well, that was obviously the reason we lost the game!”
“Damn you replacement refs,” added Baluga, shaking a clenched fist for dramatic effect.
Yeah those officials screwed us good. We were robbed!” said right guard Josh Sutton, who probably just forgot to mention how he not only was dominated by the Seahawks linemen, but also committed a costly hands-to-the-face penalty that killed a potential scoring drive.
And left guard T.J. Lang, who was manhandled by Seattle’s defensive front and consistently failed to provide any push in either run or pass blocking, angrily tweeted after the game, “Got fucked by the refs.. Embarrassing. Thanks nfl”
In a later tweet, Lang added “Any player/coach in Seattle that really thinks they won that game has zero integrity as a man and should be embarrassed,” a message that conveyed the high value that Lang obviously places on the accepting of blame and owning up to personal mistakes.
