The official that threw up his hands signaling TD still says that his call was right:
Easley said Packers safety M.D. Jennings never had independent possession of the ball. He said it was clearly a case of simultaneous possession with Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate, which means the reception goes to the offensive player. "You have to not only have the ball but have either 2 feet or a body part on the ground, and that never happened," Easley said, referencing Jennings’ interception attempt.
"Put any other official who knows the rules and they would make the same call," he added.
Easley, a banker from Santa Maria, Calif., who officiates junior college games in southern California, defended the quality of work by the replacement refs.
"We did a damn good job ... for the most part," he said.
If that's the way you see it old man, I say good riddance
