Two days ago everyone in America was wondering what the catcher from the Sandlot was doing these days. After he unleashed a forceful tweet last night right before 1 a.m. that hilariously ridiculed the horrendous replacement referees in a non-PG-13 way, everyone knows.
The truth is that the man above is a guard for the Green Bay Packers, T.J. Lang. After the Packers lost on what is one of the most horrible calls in the history of the earth, he decided he couldn’t take it any more and reacted with this on twitter.
“@TJLang70: Got f-ed by the refs.. Embarrassing. Thanks nfl”
He followed that with this gem.
“F*** it NFL.. Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs.”
He is right about one thing, the NFL is going to fine him to the moon. They will react the same way they did last week and advise the coaches, the players and the commentators to respect the replacement refs. It’s a joke.
And it’s not the refs fault. The bottom line is that they are in over their head. They can’t do the job and the NFL better do something quick to fix the integrity of their game. If not, it will become a bigger laughingstock than it is right now.
Oh, and T.J. Lang was not finished.
“Any player/coach in Seattle that really thinks they won that game has zero integrity as a man and should be embarrassed.”
And Greg Jennings will probably be fined for this one, too. Funny part is that Lang retweeted this, as well.
“@GregJennings: #NFL C’MON MAN! Can’t even be upset anymore. All I can do is laugh. Laugh at the #NFL for allowing America’s game to come this. WOW!”
I can understand their frustration. You work that hard, fly across the country, grit it out and win a game when you didn’t play that well, only to have it ripped away by one of the worst calls in history. Awful.
The NFL should be ashamed and needs to fix it now. If they don’t, Jon Gruden, who over and over again last night mentioned how this “just didn’t feel right”, will go Chucky on everyone’s asses and fix the situation himself.
