(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)
She may or may not be a fan of the Pack, but when Carrie
Underwood was heading up to Green Bay, Wis., Wednesday night (Sept. 26), she had to say something about possibly the most
controversial football call in history. “Woo hoo!! Green Bay, we are ready to rock tonight! You deserve it, you’ve had a rough
weekend! #norefsallowed,” she tweeted and hashtagged in reference to the referee who made a super questionable call during
Monday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. So far, that tweet has been retweeted 1,628 times, so I think it’s safe
to say Underwood’s thinking what we’re all thinking. After the show, she wrote, “Thanks Green Bay for the fun times tonight!
What a great crowd! I felt you guys with me every step of the way! I can’t wait to come back! Xo” Even Brad
Paisley had to say something about the game. “I think next week the NFL should just go into the stands and let anyone
wearing stripes ref the games. It can’t be worse,” he tweeted. I just hope that the scorned replacement ref — Lance Easley,
a 52-year-old banker from California — wasn’t a country fan.
