The Green Bay Packers got completely screwed in Seattle by the replacement officials and the NFL Monday night. There’s only one way this debacle is going to get fixed and real referees are going to get back on the field. Vote with your wallet.
Stop buying their gear. Stop watching their games. Stop going to their games.
The only way these assholes in their owners’ booths and the NFL offices are going to get the message is if ratings and revenue decrease. Until then, they can still play this game of “everyone makes mistakes,” “they’re doing the best they can,” “the game is as popular as ever,” “this is not hurting the product on the field…”
The product on the field is shit. The game has zero integrity (and neither does anyone in Seattle who’s pretending they actually won this game, but that’s another story).
Stop giving the NFL your money or they have no reason to give a shit.
If they don’t see your dollars, they’ll take notice and fix the problem.
Easier said than done, Monty.
I am spending $1000 on tickets and hotel to go GB this weekend against the Saints and now I feel guilty giving this shitty league my money…it feels like my GF has cheated on me to have something you love and care about betray you like Goodell betrayed all the fans.
Ya, unless something happens before Sunday, I’m not watching any football.
Nice thought Monty, but it’s not going to happen, and the NFL knows it. The only realistic solution is for the owners to start putting pressure on the NFL to get a deal done. I’m as pissed as anyone, but nobody is going to stop watching their teams on Sunday.
Even if you watch the game, if we all quit buying their shirts, hats and other products they would feel the hit. I know its hard not to watch your favorite team, but this we could do. As long as we take it, the NFL will keep giving it out. They remind me of the politicians in Washington, treating us like fucking sheep.
It probably won’t make a difference but I’m with you, I am personally boycotting the NFL, no watching games on tv or otherwise, no buying merchandise, no checking sports sites (aside from here) until the real refs are brought back. I’m sick of watching what basically amounts to a game of make-believe football where the rules are made up and broken on the fly. No integrity, no legitimacy, I’m done with it.
It would be awesome
to see Lambeau empty next week, although impossible.
The NFL could care less if no one showed up to the game Sunday. The tickets have already been sold and they’ve already made their money.
To Green Bay fans:
I am a Vikings fan but, if you don’t mind, I’d like to offer NO support… you guys lost that game and I think the officals made the right call. GO VIKING!!!!!!!!!
@Eradicktaster. Viking fan’s jealousy of GB has gotten so over the top that that cock munchers like you take the time out of your busy asshole licking schedule to post horse shit on this blog. Congratufuckinlations jerk off. I hope you got your point across.
The driving psychological issue for many fans is that if they don’t attend or watch they feel as though they’re being disloyal to their team.
In support of the Packers, I am boycotting not only the NFL, but their “proud” sponsors. I have notified Coors/Miller, Pepsi, Budweiser and others that I will not purchase any of their products in response to the travesty that was Monday Night Football. If Roger Goodell, the regular NFL refs and the lingerie refs have so little integrity, and openly disrespect the fans, then they don’t deserve my business. I’ll take my time and money elsewhere.
I regularly peruse team blogpost pages to get a feel for fan assessment (of teams) & must admit, this article is the best (& most impartial) yet. MNF penalty calling was atrocious (as was SNF). By my count, phantom & no-calls is directly responsible for 16 of the points put on the scoreboard during MNF. Seattle gets 7 pts, GB gets 9 pts (potentially 11) & Christmas merchandise is already on the shelves. It’s refreshing to see fans assess their own teams transgressions as well! Yes, the ref thing needs to be resolved to restore some measure of integrity to the game.
