Gingrich rants against referee call in 'infuriating' Green Bay Packers game

The former House Speaker and Republican candidate for president tweeted Tuesday that the referees were wrong, and called the previous night's game “infuriating.”


Referees decided Seattle had completed a Hail Mary touchdown pass on the last play of the game, resulting in a win for the Seattle Seahawks, 14-12. The NFL said Tuesday that the ruling was final.

Gingrich was not the only one weighing in Tuesday on the disputed call and the NFL lockout, which resulted in the use of replacement referees. Mitt Romney, his GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, President Obama and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) all addressed the controversy and called for an end to the lockout.
