On Sunday, replacement officials initially ruled that a 10-yard pass by Michael Vick was a fumble. They also threw the “blue beanie” turnover flag to call offensive pass interference. Incompetent, but kind of lovable. Like kittens playing with a ball of yarn.
This next one, though, is not so adorably silly. Actually, it’s quite shocking.
Last night on WIP’s Players Lounge, LeSean McCoy told Anthony Gargano and Ike Reese the following: [CBS Philly]
“During the game, they made a bad call or something. I see Ray Lewis pump his chest up or something and walk over to the ref, trying to scare him. Don’t you know he (the ref) started stuttering. I’m like, what’s this? I’ll be honest, though. They’re like fans. Refs are talking about their fantasy teams. They’re like, “McCoy, I need you for my fantasy.” I’m like, what?!”
