Following Seattle's controversial victory over the Packers on Monday night, many Packers players sent out tweets that expressed their displeasure with the job the referees did during the game. In somewhat shocking news, those players won't be fined by the league, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.
Lang got things started shortly after the game.
RT @tjlang70: Got f***ed by the refs.. Embarrassing. Thanks nfl— Eye on Football (@EyeOnNFL) September 25, 2012
The lineman followed up that tweet by writing, "F--- it, NFL. Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs."
La Canfora reports that instead of pursuing discipline against the players, the NFL is instead focused on trying to resolve the labor dispute with the officials.
That's probably good news for everyone. What the Packers players said on social media likely didn't sit well with the league, but it's also not going to do the NFL any favors trying to figure out who crossed what line and whether or not lines crossed on Twitter are worthy of a particular fine.
