I’m back with another Monday Night Football classic, this time featuring the Seahawks again.. Except this time featuring the Green Bay Packers. This game took place in 2012 and held plenty of controversy as the Seahawks won on a last second hail Mary.
The game was a back and forth battle, but Seattle prevailed. Russel Wilson launched the ball 60 yards to the back of the endzone MD Jennings and Golden Tate both went for the ball and it appeared that Jennings made the interception. However, the referees gave Golden Tate possession of the ball. And the touchdown with no time left. The commentators of the game suspect that Tate also should have been flagged for a pass interference before he caught the ball.
This game caused NFL commissioner Rodger Godell to end the strike that the normal officials were taking to get the normal referee’s back. During this time replacement ref’s were officiating with limited experience at the pro level.
After the game it caused a media uproar and even ABC morning news was reporting on it. Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, and the coach expressed their outrage openly. Along with millions of angry fans on social media.
I happened to be at the ball game and loved the call. I was happy to see Seattle get this win and improve on the season. I have to mention that my game experience was topped my Bellevue Limo Services transportation after the game. We celebrated by drinking all the way home. All in all the call is still questionable overall. I’ll still support the Seahawks on this call but i do understand the frustration of Green Bay Packer fans. Since this game, a rivalry has been created now i don’t miss a game between these two teams.
Tune in next week for another historic Monday Night Football game!
