Rodgers sharp, refs booed in Packers scrimmage
Replacement refs worked Friday night scrimmage
GREEN BAY, Wis. —Aaron Rodgers was sharp in limited work and the NFL’s replacement officials weren’t shy about making calls — even unpopular ones — in the Green Bay Packers’ “Family Night” scrimmage on Friday.
A crowd of 55,605 took in the sights at Lambeau Field, many of them getting their first look at the stadium’s major ongoing construction project in the south end zone — including a massive new video board towering high over the field. The project won’t be completed until 2013.
With the NFL involved in a labor dispute with its officials, Friday night’s scrimmage featured some of the league’s replacement officials, who came to Green Bay to work at Packers practices earlier in the week.
