    The NFL will not fine players for critical remarks made players on Twitter toward the NFL and replacement officials after Monday's controversial ending to the Green Bay Packers' loss to the Seattle Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Steve Wyche.

    The news frankly is a bit of a surprise, but maybe it shouldn't be. The league has not fined a player for remarks made on social media outside of its time restrictions before and after games. Wyche said that general policy will remain in this case, despite the passionate and profane comments from the Packers and others in the wake of Monday night's touchdown call.

    Packers guard T.J. Sitton, tight end Jermichael Finley, and guard T.J. Lang were among the most vocal critics. Considering the emotion of the game, and the statement the NFL released on the play, perhaps the league felt it was unwieldy to try to punish everyone for their comments.

    This just goes to show the NFL also does not respect these officials.
