Bill Belichick can expect a nice little fine from the NFL in the coming days. The New England Patriots coach was not happy with the replacement refs on Sunday night as the Pats fell to the Baltimore Ravens. The game was not without some odd calls and the call on the game-winning field goal set the Hoodie off.
I mean, this is a huge deal. The league has been stressing to the players and coaches to respect the replacement refs. Grabbing one like he is your kid that you want to scold is not going to go over well at all. However, do not think that this means the real refs are going to back soon.
The NFL will not break until fans stop watching. Trust me on this. They will keep reeling in the money and the refs are not going to come back until the league gives them money. They want the refs to break and they are really sacrificing the integrity of the game right now.
I know for a fact that I will not stop watching games, so I am just going to have to deal with the refs. They are trying their best but they are simply in over their heads. Getting mad about it is not going to change one single thing. They are here until the NFL decides that the integrity of the game is completely ruined. Until fans stop watching, we are going to get a lot more stories like this.
