Packers fans protest controversial call at end of Monday night's loss to Seattle in front of Lambeau Field on Tuesday Sept. 25, 2012.

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A small number of Green Bay Packers’ fans showed up at Lambeau Field Tuesday morning to protest the replacement officials’ call that gave Seattle a 14-12 win over the Pack Monday night.

Packers’ safety M.D. Jennings came down with what appeared to be an interception of a Hail Mary pass from Seahawks’ quarterback Russell Wilson with time running out. But Seattle receiver Golden Tate managed to get his arms around the ball while he was underneath Jennings’ body – and the officials called a touchdown that was confirmed by a replay reviewer.

Four protestors said that they showed up at Lambeau just after midnight, and a few others joined them after the sun came up.

Seth Wagnitz said the NFL’s regular officials need to return because, “It has cost us a game, and that shouldn’t be happening.”

The replacements are generally from the NCAA’s Divisions II and III – and they’re filling in while the regular officials are being locked out by the NFL in a labor dispute.
