Packers Fans Protest Outside Lambeau Field in Wake of Controversial Loss to SeahawksMost Packers fans will limit the venting of their frustration to social media and barroom chatter. Others are so appalled by the ending of Monday night's game against the Seahawks that they've headed down to Lambeau Field.

A handful of fans were seen gathering outside the Packers' classic home turf on Tuesday, according to NFL.com.

"Call it a small, but dedicated, rebellion," NFL.com's Marc Sessler wrote Tuesday morning.

As of the article's posting — roughly 11 a.m. — WGBA-TV in Green Bay had reportedly told the NFL Network and NFL.com that six people were seen huddled outside the stadium, but that the number was expected to grow.

Growth is a safe assumption in this case, as a lot of people were probably at work Tuesday morning. Regardless of the official number, however, it's obvious that some Packers fans are taking Monday night's robbery harder than others.

"We're trying to get the [original] refs back," Packers fan Seth Wagnitz, 24, told the Green Bay Press Gazette. "With the refs that we have now, they're not qualified to do the job like the other refs are. They're high school and college officials.

"We really need the refs back because now it has cost us a game, and that shouldn't be happening."

Regardless of who wins and who loses, most football fans would agree that the officials shouldn't be the deciding factor. Unfortunately, the replacement refs have had their fingerprints all over the first three weeks, and it's starting to cause big problems.
