Disappointment in Ruling of the Seahawks/Packers Game

The NFL confirmed the outcome of Monday's Green Bay-Seattle game. The effects of the lockout rear its ugly head while Seahawks win and Packers come out with the short end of the stick. Fans are not the only ones disappointed in the ruling.

With the NFL and its regular officials locked out since June, they continued to try to resolve the issues but this proved to be slightly late for the Green Bay Packers.

The nightmare began on "Monday Night Football with Packers vs. Seahawks. The NFL claims that Seattle's final touchdown pass should be deemed invalid as Seahawks receiver, Golden Tate should have been called for offensive pass interference resulting in a win for the Packers.

Officials allowed the touchdown without taking penalties into consideration.

It came down to a decision as to whether Tate and Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings maintained possession of the ball. The officials said yes while the Packers say Jennings had possession causing an interception that should have ended the game. In the end, the NFL determined that the replay was inconclusive which gave Seattle the game.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers had something to say on Tuesday.

"First of all, I've got to do something that the NFL is not going to do: I have to apologize to the fans," he said on ESPN 540-AM in Milwaukee.

President Barack Obama commented on Twitter on Tuesday: "NFL fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs' lockout is settled soon."

The final ruling on the score resulted in Seahawks 14, Packers 12.
