Rodgers, Packers try to move past referee debacle

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- One day after venting on his radio show about the refereeing debacle that cost the Green Bay Packers a game in Seattle, Aaron Rodgers was saving one last barb for the NFL.

Asked Wednesday about how the Packers were handling the aftermath of a Monday night loss that touched off a national firestorm about the league's use of replacement officials, Rodgers dismissed an NFL-issued statement generally supporting the officials' handling of the situation a "bogus report."

Beyond that, though, the MVP says it's time to move on.

Rodgers says that while the officials were lacking, "there's a lot of blame to fall on the shoulders of guys like myself who didn't play their best game that night."
