If you use social media, that is the message that came through yesterday.
The play, in case you missed it, is here (until the NFL discovers the existence of YouTube.)
Obviously, one of my favorite images from Monday Night's debacle is the one at the top of the page. Tweeted by ESPN reporter Rachel Nicols, @Rachel__Nichols says that this should be the defining image for the Replacement Ref Era, and I agree. They are trying to get all the calls right - even if that means making both calls on each play.
My other favorite is this screen cap I made before going to sleep:
TJ Lang summed it up as well as anybody, and I feel bad for him because he's going to be fined for being a problem solver!
On the subject of fines in general, comedian Tommy Johnagin said it best whenI don't know what charity NFL fines go to but they're definitely going on that trip this year."
In my opinion, Tweet of The Night goes to comedian Mike Vecchione when @mvecchi1 said, "If the replacement refs were crossing guards, there wouldn't be enough children that survive to play pro football."
So, if we learned anything tonight, it's that Tommy Johnagin and Mike Vecchione are probably the funniest guys on Twitter and you should follow them.
