Obama weighs in on disputed NFL call

Wide receiver Golden Tate #81 of the Seattle Seahawks makes a catch in the end zone to defeat the Green Bay Packers on a controversial call by the officials at CenturyLink Field on September 24, 2012 in Seattle, Wash.

This final note today. It's not just Marketplace's fearless director Millie Jefferson who's had enough of the NFL officials lockout.

Besides speaking at the United Nations today, President Obama took a second to weigh in. He called the call on the non-touchdown last night... terrible.

The NFL, by the way, put out a statement today that said the game result is final.
