Default Replacement Refs - CONSPIRACY THEORY

Ok...
I've been more outspoken than most on the boards in support of the replacement refs. It's been well-covered in other threads, so no need to restate it here.

With that said, I wonder what the odds are of these guys actually STINKING UP THE PLACE to make the ref-holdout look even more important. Yeah, I know:

Just imagine if it comes out that one of these refs is a Seahawks fan or that one of them was gambling on the game?

GB wouldn't have covered the spread either way. The touchdown had no impact on gambling -- or so I heard

Seattle-Green Bay touchdown call could have altered $250 million in bets

Quote:
What drives gamblers insane is the possibility that what happened on the field doesn't show up in the final score, and that's apparently the case from Monday night's game. When Russell Wilson lofted his final pass, Green Bay was ahead by five, covering a spread of 3 1/2. When Golden Tate got at least a hand on the ball, apparently enough to consider it a touchdown in the eyes of a referee, that gave Seattle the win both on the field and against the spread. Boom: instant reversal.
So how much money are we talking here? ESPN.com quotes John Avello, director of The Wynn Las Vegas' sports book, as saying the total in play could have been $150 million. Online gambling officials pegged the number at a staggering quarter-billion dollars.

The replacement refs aren't going out there to make themselves look stupid...on purpose.
