Seahawks Win Marks End to One of the Worst Weekends in Officiating History

The National Football League has found itself potentially losing in a big way on their gamble to continue locking out the unionized referees of the National Football League Referee's Association. In games featuring the top-ranked San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans, Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots, the replacement officials have been subject to more scrutiny than most officials have in recent history.

While it is traditionally par for the course for fans to cry foul when it comes to poor officiating or questionable calls, the national outcry for an unusually high number of controversial calls on primetime television in close games in Wee​k 3 of the NFL season has put even more pressure on Roger Gooddell and the owners to negotiate a final agreement with the NFLRA.
