Lions troll; Cowboys fans, haters weigh in on controversial call
As expected with ‘America’s Team’ being the center of a controversial, game-changing reverse call in a playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys fans and haters took to social media to vent.
Most notably, several Detroit Lions players – and the team’s Twitter page itself – expressed they felt justice had been served from their controversial loss on a pass interference call resulting in their exit from the playoffs a week prior.

That wasn’t all, Packers fan and former vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan god in a jab at the expense of recently well-documented Cowboys fan/Jerry Jones’ best buddy New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

I thought Dez caught that ball. But both teams were awesome. #NFLPlayoffs

I'm one who thinks that was a catch by Dez…..but can they put an electric fence up, to keep him off the field? #Uncle

How is reaching for the goal line for a touch down not a football move ?

How was that not a catch by Dez, reaching for the goal line was "The Football" move in itself…

Was it the correct call? Do the rules need some revision? Continue the debate.
