The NFL has a huge problem right now with their referees. This weekend ruined a lot of fans ability to trust the league.
Several fans were claiming the NFL is rigged, and to be honest it looked rigged.
The NFL did nothing to help themselves when it comes to officiating.
The referees were making horrible calls, and Pat McAfee said it best, they sucked.
McAfee continued saying:
“I do think, though, that we have a massive officiating issue, I think refs suck! Not all refs. There are some refs that suck, and they shouldn’t be in playoff games. Why are they in playoff games? Especially when there’s only two games, and there’s going to be 50 million people watching.”
Both games this weekend had some horrible calls. The play made on the sideline bay Devonta Smith and do not get me started on the ten to twelve missed plays in the Bengals/Chiefs game.
McAfee says the NFL needs to pay them, make them full-time employees and make them more committed to the game.
“Since they’re not completely committed to the NFL, there’s a chance that somebody can get a hold of them,” McAfee added. “Now, I think they get paid well, but what is well? What is the line? Especially with how much money is potentially being made off of these games.”
“So make them full-time, boom, we can eliminate that distraction of potentially getting swayed elsewhere,” McAfee added. “Like all politicians cause they don’t get paid enough, so they’re easily swayed by Big Pharma, Big Gas, f***ing alcohol, tobacco, whatever, you can get named into it.”
Do you think McAfee is right? Shoot we feel they should have to answer questions after the game.
