The 5 Worst Officiating Mistakes of the 2012 NFL Season (So Far)

As you may have heard, hobos and miscreants are in charge of refereeing NFL games now! Or, rather, the NFL has decided to use high school referees as replacements while it negotiates with the actual referees' union, which has led to the occasional minor controversy. And while Monday's night's disastrous ending to the Packers-Seahawks game is probably the pinnacle (or nadir) of this sad saga, there were already plenty of questionable, puzzling and downright infuriating officiating decisions leading up to it.

The 5 Most Questionable Calls in NFL History

But with only seconds left in the first half in their game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers didn't have to worry about that when they sent kicker David Akers out to try what would tie the record for the longest kick in league history.

The timing was impeccable unfortunate, as the CBS announcers began talking about Novak, right as the camera found him, and stayed there a "wee" bit too long.
