Wisconsin is still recovering from the tragedy that occurred in Seattle Monday night. Thousands of Cheeseheads and other football fans joined Facebook groups such as “Boycott the NFL,” in response to the controversial call made by temporary referees at the end of the fourth quarter.
But politicians are jumping into the conversation, too. President Obama is discussing the need for the refs to return at press conferences, Paul Ryan is using this debate to attack the Obama administration and Gov. Scott Walker is tweeting about the final call.
Ironically, all of these politicians are calling for compromise between the official referees and the National Football League, but they can’t seem to have bipartisan negotiations of their own.
