Well, isn’t this rich.
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had some issues with the officiating after his team’s loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Carroll’s problem stems from Jayrone Elliott’s interception. After picking off Russell Wilson, Elliott fumbled the ball. The Packers were awarded the ball, but there was a scrum and Seahawks tackle Justin Britt came out of it with the ball.
This has happened before and it’s usually a result of the guy with the ball giving it up once the officials award possession. In this case, Elliott recovered his own fumble, the refs signaled Packers’ ball, Elliott got out of the scrum and Britt emerged with the ball.
But Carroll doesn’t see that as a possibility.
“I don’t know what the heck happened. I’m going to say it out loud here about this fumble thing. When the ball’s on the ground, and there’s a big pileup, we’re trying to get that football. And Justin Britt handed it to the official. Somewhere in there, the officials said that they declared that it was down, that they had the ball. Nobody pointed. Nobody told us that. So we kept battling, and we have the football. I don’t really understand that very well.
“I know what they said and all that, but I’m just disappointed in that because we’re going to compete for that ball, and we did. And we want to walk away from those piles with it, and we did. We just didn’t get it [from the refs].”
You whiny fuck.
Why don’t you go eat a bag of dicks?
Even if this was a bad call, Seattle does not get to complain about officiating.
They were the beneficiary of the single most bullshit call in officiating history. Their license to say anything about officiating is permanently fucking revoked.
