Bringing back the “real” NFL referees was supposed to put an end to bad officiating. But after a questionable call in today’s Packers-Saints game, it looks like the old refs aren’t working out quite as well as NFL fans had hoped:

Looks like replacement refs AND real refs dont like the packers huh?

Refs still have their pension and still miss calls.

Packers now asking for replacement replacement referees

— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) September 30, 2012

The only thing more comedic than the replacement refs is people who thought "real" refs were somehow different.

"Not so easy, is it?" – Replacement Refs

And the anti-Packers conspiracy continues. #Packers

Roger Goodell REALLY needs to bring the regular refs back…oh…what?!…these aren't replacement refs?! #GBvsNO @typikoll @tunnzofunn

Quite a few fans say they miss the replacement refs — you know, the officials whom some Twitter users wanted to assassinate just last week:

I miss the replacement refs. They sucked too, but at least they weren't full of themselves.

— Gregg Doyel (@GreggDoyelCBS) September 30, 2012

Bring back the replacement refs.

— Indie Coffee (@indiecoffee) September 30, 2012

Somehow it’s all NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s fault:
