Transcript for Refs Bobble Hail Mary Call
And now, to the call that turned "monday night football" into monday night mayhem. The seattle seahawks defeating the packers on a last-second play that may be one of the biggest referee blunders of all-time. It has fans and players screaming to the nfl, to end the referee lockout. It was the call heard around the world. Reporter: Got that right. When nfl fans thought it couldn't get any worse, last night, a call to end the seahawks/packers game, that has everyone pointing the finger at the nfl saying, enough is enough. There were eight seconds on the clock. And jon gruden laid it on the line. A section of the end zone with as many seahawks as you can. Get someone a chance. Reporter: Seahawks rookie quarterback, russell wilson, tossed up a hail mary. Who has it? Who did they give it to? Touchdown. Reporter: But look here. Watch the two refs immediately giving mixed signals in the end zone. One calls it a touchdown. One says it isn't. For the life of me, I don't have credit. It feels like a jennings interception. Reporter: And after a further look. Fter further review, the call on the field stands. Touchdown. This is comical to me, really. That's two of the worst calls at the end of a football game I can remember. I agree with you, jon. When it impacts the end of a game and the outcome of a game, is this the impetus to change this lockout situation? We don time will answer that. Reporter: Reaction was fast and furious. It was awful. Look at the replay. I've never seen anything like that in all my years of football. Reporter: Clay matthews and wisconsin state senator, even posted roger goodell's phone numbers on facebook and twitter. And the uproar went viral. Drew brees, the packers' next opponent, tweeted his solidarity. Tonight's debacle hurts me greatly. Goodell and the nfl are in negotiations with the referees union. But three weeks of chaos and controversy over calls on the field are taking their toll. Sunday, pats' coach bill belichick grabbed a ref's arm, after another controversial call. The seahawks won the game, 14-12. The ending was -- the game wasn't over for another ten minutes. Both teams called back from the locker rooms forhe extra point. The nfl responded, telling players they have to respect the game. Now, they're hearing the same thing directed at them. As josh said earlier, it's a case of integrity.
