Replacement Ref To LeSean McCoy: I Need You For My Fantasy Team
If you thought the officiating was bad in Sunday’s Ravens vs. Eagles game, wait until you hear this. Eagles RB LeSean McCoy was doing a radio interview on 94WIP in Philadelphia and shed some light on just how bad the situation is getting. He spoke of Ray Lewis striking fear in the officials and also said that one of the refs told LeSean he needs him for his fantasy team!
This is getting really bad. First you had Saints superfan Brian Stropolo scheduled to ref a Saints game mere weeks after attending a New Orleans preseason game as a fan. Now this. McCoy went on the record saying:
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?!
Part of us thinks that McCoy is just lying or exaggerating…but on the other hand, would you put it past these guys? They have to be stargazing a little bit, going from reffing Division III Delaware Valley and Widener games to this.
McCoy also said about Ray Lewis:
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?!’
