Green Bay Mayor Demanding NFL Bring Back Real Refs
Mayor James Schmitt tells TMZ he's drafting a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell ... urging him to end the ref lockout because it's compromising the integrity of the NFL ... as evidenced by Monday night's game.
Exhibit A -- Monday night's refs robbing the Packers of a win by incorrectly calling Green Bay's interception in the endzone ...a touchdown for the Seattle Seahawks. The Pack lost 14-12.
Schmitt says, "This is not right. I understand talent costs money, but when it comes to the crucial role of the referees ... it has to be a top priority."
Hizzoner is in a unique position because he's also a shareholder in the Green Bay Packers -- the only NFL team publicly owned.
But the Mayor makes it clear ... "We are not protesting losing the game. We are protesting the quality of officiating." more on this story
