The game between Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks has finally exposed NFL’s fraud. For months, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has leaded a strong public relations campaign designed to convince people that the replacement referees were qualified enough to be working in NFL games.
However, the recent game held between Packers and Seahawks has shown every NFL fan that the referee decision regarding the game-winning touchdown was nothing less than a debacle. And at least for all Packers fans, it was nothing more than heart ache, since they lost the game 14-12 because of the controversial decision.
Following the game, Green Bay Packers lineman T.J. Lang tweeted about the decision.
Fuck it NFL.. Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs.— TJ Lang (@TJLang70) September 25, 2012
The tweet made by Lang has gone viral on Twitter with its number of retweets surpassing 90,000 and still counting. And here, for comparison, is President Obama’s tweet about same-sex marriage, which was previously thought to be one of the most retweeted tweets ever.
"Same-sex couples should be able to get married."—President Obama— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) May 9, 2012
President Obama’s trails Lang by more than 15,000 tweets.
Lang’s tweet might have overtaken President Obama, but he still has to face the challenge of some other celebrities and sports personalities in order to stabilize his position in the ‘most retweeted list’ it faces competition by a tweet by boxer Floyd Mayweather that has over 90,000 retweets.
Manny Pacquiao I'm calling you out let's fight May 5th and give the world what they want to see.— Floyd Mayweather (@FloydMayweather) January 10, 2012
However, the undisputed winner of retweets remains the classic tweet made by Justin Bieber quoting LMFAO. It has 120,000 retweets.
I'M SEXY AND I KNOW IT— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) November 21, 2011
Keeping in mind that Bieber’s tweet has been a year old, and Mayweather’s has been for eight months, Lang’s tweet does deserve some recognition considering that it’s not been around for long. Moreover, there is potentially good reason to believe that it will surely surpass Mayweather’s retweets without much difficulty.
