Hmmm, a bit of an interesting look.
Just before tonight’s 28-23 NFC Divisional Playoff win over the Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers was seen hugging referee Clete Blakeman during NFL on Fox’s pregame show.
The picture was captured during the live look-in segment, right before Fox cut the picture back to the show. And fans of any NFL team (and some from the Packers) got pretty nervous and unpleased from it.
As football fans all know, Blakeman was the referee who officiated the Monday Night Football debacle in the Packers game against the Detroit Lions back last October. A couple of those calls did directly change the outcome of the game then.
However, he also was selected to officiate tonight’s game at Lambeau Field, and ‘coincidentally’, there were also a few questionable calls during tonight’s game too.
There may be a couple controversial calls to both sides, but it was the call near the end of the game that decided the outcome (see the first link below).
A lot of football fans should’ve known that the fix was probably in before the game started, but karma will come soon. Who knows when it will happen.
Green Bay (and hopefully not with their own refs) will be in San Francisco next Sunday for a shot at the Super Bowl.
