Football fans suddenly not so keen on ‘real’ NFL referees!/RobLowe/status/252549148967059458
Bringing back the “real” NFL referees was supposed to put an end to bad officiating. But after a questionable call in today’s Packers-Saints game, it looks like the old refs aren’t working out quite as well as NFL fans had hoped:

Looks like replacement refs AND real refs dont like the packers huh?

Refs still have their pension and still miss calls.

Packers now asking for replacement replacement referees

The only thing more comedic than the replacement refs is people who thought "real" refs were somehow different.

"Not so easy, is it?" – Replacement Refs

Roger Goodell REALLY needs to bring the regular refs back…oh…what?!…these aren't replacement refs?! #GBvsNO @typikoll @tunnzofunn

Quite a few fans say they miss the replacement refs — you know, the officials whom some Twitter users wanted to assassinate just last week:

I miss the replacement refs. They sucked too, but at least they weren't full of themselves.

Somehow it’s all NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s fault:

— Bo Jackson (@HeyyMrrCarterr) September 30, 2012
