For those of you who love to rip on the NFL replacement referees, here's another story from the mouth of Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy that might show their amateur status.
During the Eagles victory over the Baltimore Ravens, McCoy said one of the refs told him to do well for his fantasy football team:
“They’re like fans, kind of though,” McCoy said. “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?!”To note, Pro Football Talk received a statement from the NFL stating that NFL referees can't have any fantasy football teams, so the unnamed official is lucky he wasn't ratted out by McCoy.
