Unable to reach a new CBA with its on-field officials, the NFL made the disastrous decision to start the 2012 season with a motley assortment that reportedly included refugees from the Lingerie Football League. Fears of blown calls were soon justified in the rising anger of players, coaches and fans, but the NFL stubbornly supported the replacements, whose blunders finally ignited a firestorm on Sept. 24 when a Hail Mary pass from Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was ruled a game-winning TD. The 10-minute review missed flagrant offensive pass interference by Seahawks receiver Golden Tate, who ended up wrestling for the ball with Packers safety M.D. Jennings, who had clearly intercepted the pass. The uproar moved Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and President Obama to tweet for an end to the lockout of the real refs.
