Packers’ fans vocal

Referee Jeff Triplette struck a triumphant tone before Sunday’s Saints-Packers game at Lambeau Field, announcing during the pregame coin toss that “it’s great to be back, gentlemen!” With the NFL’s regular officials back on the job, Packers players were prepared to move on from a call that cost them a win at Seattle. Their fans didn’t quite seem to be ready yet. Some fans showed up Sunday intending to voice their displeasure with replacement officials whose decision to allow a last-second Seahawks touchdown cost the Packers the win Monday night. “Worst Call Ever,” read one fan’s shirt. A sign in the stands welcomed back the regular officials, and a handful of fans wore black and white striped shirts. – Associated Press
