Carl Johnson, the NFL's vice president of officiating, told Vikings coach Brad Childress on Monday that referee Scott Green made a mistake when he overturned Visanthe Shiancoe's 17-yard diving touchdown catch on review because, in Green's estimation, the ground helped the tight end hold onto the football.
Childress shared this information with the media and, partly because of that, was fined $35,000 by the NFL on Tuesday. Well, Wednesday night Johnson went on the official review segment of "NFL Total Access" on the NFL Network and explained to America that the second-quarter call made in the Vikings' 28-24 loss to the Packers was a bad one.
