He took particular issue with a second-quarter review -- on the play in question, Brett Favre threw what was initially ruled a touchdown pass to tight end Visanthe Shiancoe, who reached out for the ball, then appeared to cradle it to his stomach as he fell face-first. But Green Bay challenged the call and it was overturned, with referee Scott Green saying that Shiancoe had used the ground to assist in making the catch.
The Vikings eventually settled for a field goal. The four-point swing wound up being the difference in Green Bay's 28-24 win.
"It's hard when they take touchdowns off the board. I must not understand a catch in the end zone for them to take Shiancoe's off the board," Childress said. "That's not the way it's taught, that's not the way we're told ... That's wrong. That's wrong.
They said he didn't control it and he controlled it. ...
"If the litmus is 50 drunks in a bar, those 50 drunks say that's a catch."
Shiancoe took issue with the decision, too, according to KFAN-1130 radio in Minnesota.
"I don't understand that rule, man," Shiancoe said, according to the station's Twitter feed. "I ain't no (expletive) ref."
Childress also complained about a late face-mask penalty against Vikings offensive lineman Phil Loadholt in the game's closing seconds, a 15-yard infraction that pushed Minnesota from the Green Bay 20 to the 35 and brought up a 1st-and-30 -- Shiancoe had been whistled for a false start prior to that.
