Replacement Refs, A Surprise Piggy-Back Ride ... This Game Has Everything!

Sunday's Week 1 game between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers is already thrilling as heck. It's also featuring some fantastic calls and non-calls as the replacement referees really seem to start looking comfortable in there. One particular play in the end zone during the second quarter eatured an entire clown-car of goings-on, which we have captured for you in one handy GIF.

The Packers wanted a pass interference call on this play. They didn't get it. What they did get was an "I don't have time for this bullpuckey" ref-shove and a surprise piggy-back ride! Wheeeeee!
