Vikings Punter Chris Kluwe took to Twitter Friday to criticize replacement officials. “The NFL really needs to kiss and make up with the refs. These replacements are horrible. Frankly, it’s kind of embarrassing,” Kluwe tweeted.
Kluwe's remarks refer to the labor dispute between the NFL and the NFL Referees Association after an ugly 12-10 loss to the San Diego Chargers, according to the Associated Press. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the two sides need to reach an agreement soon to have full-time officials in place in time for the regular season.
Kluwe's following Tweet says, "I'm sure they're trying hard, but they're just not good. So many blown calls tonight in both directions."
