Are these replacement referees or just hardcore fans that love to dress up like zebras and run up and down the field?
Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean MCCoy told 94WIP Philadelphia’s Anthony Garganao and Ike Reese how much like fans these refs really are:
“During the game, they made like a bad call or something, the ref, and I see Ray Lewis like pump his chest up, trying to scare him. Don’t you know [the ref] started stuttering? I’m like ‘what’s this?!’…They’re like fans, kind of though. I’ll be honest, they’re like fans. One of the refs was talking about his fantasy team, like ‘McCoy, come on, I need you for my fantasy,’ ahhh, what?!”
There has been many questions in the recent weeks about the abilities of the replacement refs. Many players and coaches are not satisfied and feel that the NFL needs to bring back the more experienced signal callers.
