SEATTLE (WKOW) - Social media caught fire after the Packers' controversial loss to the Seattle Seahawks on a last second play that some say the referees got all wrong.
The officials are replacement for the usual referees who are locked out of the NFL right now because of a contract dispute.
Many eyes were on the Monday Night Football game, including some big names who tweeted about it afterward or hit Facebook to leave their comments.
NBC Star LeBron James tweeted several times, in one saying "I simply just love the NFL to (sic) much to see these mistakes. I'm sick like I just played for the Packers."
Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings tweeted, in part, "All I can do is laugh. Laugh at the NFL for allowing America's game to come to this. WOW!"
Even Wisconsin politicians got in on the twitter action. State Senator Jon Erpenbach was apparently so frustrated with the loss he tweeted NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's phone number. In a separate tweet, he said if the game didn't spark an end to the lockout of the regular officials "this season will be a joke."
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker used the hashtag #Returntherealrefs in his tweet about the game.
The 27 News Facebook page had more than 200 comments from viewers after posting about the Packers game. To continue the conversation, head to www.facebook.com/27news.
SEATTLE (WKOW) -- Russell Wilson threw a disputed 24-yard touchdown to Golden Tate on the final play of the game, and the Seattle Seahawks rallied to beat the Green Bay Packers 14-12 on Monday night in a controversial ending.
Wilson scrambled from the pocket and threw to the corner of the end zone as the clock expired. Tate shoved Green Bay's Sam Shields out of the way, then wrestled with M.D. Jennings for possession. It was ruled on the field as a touchdown and after a lengthy review, referee Wayne Elliott came out from under the hood and announced "the ruling on the field stands" and CenturyLink Field erupted in celebration.
Both teams left the field before being brought back out to attempt the point after touchdown. The delay was nearly 10 minutes.
