GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Quarterback Aaron Rodgers isn't buying the official explanation for a controversial, decisive call in the Green Bay Packers' 14-12 loss at Seattle on Monday night.
And Rodgers says the NFL's willingness to use replacement officials who aren't up to the task is a sign that the league cares more about money than it does about tarnishing the game.
Speaking on his weekly radio show on Milwaukee's ESPN 540 AM on Tuesday afternoon, Rodgers still was seething about replacement officials' decision to award a last-second touchdown to Seahawks receiver Golden Tate -- when Rodgers, his teammates, Packers fans and much of the football-watching public saw a clear-cut interception by the Packers' M.D. Jennings.
Rodgers apologized to fans, saying the NFL apparently isn't willing to do so itself.
