MILWAUKEE - The phones have been lighting up the postgame show on Newsradio 620 WTMJ after the controversial finish to the Packers game in Seattle.
Fans are all over the board. Some are saddened, but most are angry.
"I was totally disgusted by it," one caller said. "I'm not watching football anymore because I'm sick of seeing the travesties that are happening," said another caller.
The reaction from the Packers' Greg Jennings was exactly what was he required to say. Although you could detect some sarcasm, "The league has a lot to look at. But like I said, Roger, the refs did a great job. Please don't send an envelope to my locker."
Fans don't face a fine for speaking out. Another fan reaction, "I had a bears fan, my own brother, a Bears fan called me to tell me we got screwed on that call. A Bears fan!"
Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Gene Mueller says it seems pretty clear the Packers got screwed, "There isn't a person I've read on the Internet, any columnist in any newspaper anybody out there, even the Seattle papers out there are saying this isn't right."
At least one restaurant in Milwaukee says it's not going to show Packers games until the dispute is over. Stack'd Burger Bar says it will drape its TV's in black and white.
