NFL fans in Wisconsin are upset, and rightfully so.
A bad call during Monday night's game between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks likely cost the Packers a win. But now that the NFL has said it will stand by the call, there's not much for Packers fans to do.
One Wisconsin semi-professional football team is making light of the issue with it's own unique twist on the unfortunate situation. The Racine Raiders are holding a "Replacement Referee Night" for their game against the Roscoe Rush this Saturday. Any fan who dresses as a referee will get into the game for free, and a few fans will get to go on the field for the field for a "Worst Call of the Night" contest.
"Fans are frustrated with the state of professional football right now," said Raiders president Matthew Snyder. "We want to give them a creative and fun outlet for their frustration."
Some of the current replacement referees are themselves former semi-professional officials, so maybe one lucky fan can score a call up to the NFL with an especially good showing on Saturday.
