(WSCR) In the wake of Monday night’s blown call during the Packers-Seahawks game that took a win away from Green Bay, the Lingerie Football League released a statement saying that it fired several officiating crews that are now working as replacement refs in the NFL.

Replacement refs on Monday ruled a Seahawks touchdown on what should have been a game-ending interception for the Packers. Instead, the Seahawks scored and won the game on a last-second Hail Mary.

Here’s the full statement from the Lingerie Football League.

Because of the LFL’s perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.

We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight’s event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games.
