"They're Blind": A Playlist for the Replacement Refs & the NFL

09/25/2012 12:32 am ET | Updated Nov 24, 2012

This was truly the NFL's Night of Shame, and it had better be the last. Last night's misadventure in Seattle is bigger than one football game between the Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers. It's about the stunning arrogance of Roger Goodell and the NFL in thinking fans will not care if the game they love is officiated in a remotely professional and fair manner. The replacement officials are horrible, but it is the people who hired them who are blind to the truth that this disgrace cannot go on a game longer. Here are some songs that came to mind -- and some suggested by the people who follow me on Twitter at @wildaboutmusic. Please add your own songs and thoughts below.
