Last night's game -- yeah, file it under big Twitter moment. Last week we posted how socially people are expressing themselves in regard to the refs. Well it's only gotten worse, and don't take my word for it, but everybody else's. Because as we know, numbers never lie.
Monday night there were over 1 million mentions of the situation.
T.J. Lang's controversial, obscenity-laden tweets, which you can easily find using a Google search, were retweeted more 130,000 times between his three tweets. Given his relatively low number of followers -- he has just over 100,00 -- that's an astronomical number.
There were numerous other profane tweets from Green Bay Packers, perhaps best summed up by Greg Jennings.

And many more celebrities and sports stars piped in:

I've been saying give the refs a break but that TD call was ridicules. How do you miss that? Pop Warner refs would have gotten that right.
