If you watched any part of Sunday night's game between the Patriots and Ravens, you undoubtedly saw a penalty of some sort called by one of the replacement officials.

Well, Boston Globe columnist Bob Ryan saw the whole game -- and he wasn't happy.

In fact, he's completely fed up with the whole situation, going so far as to say it's one of the lowest points for the NFL ever, and "an embarrassment of epic proportions".

Boston Herald's Steve Buckley is in agreement with Ryan, saying the league needs to do something and do something fast. But he's not going to blame the refs for the Patriots loss Sunday night, saying that it ultimately fell on the Pats defense.
