I watch a lot of football and this NFL’s Wildcard Weekend was something to behold with three games being snoozers and one game possibly having the outcome changed by the officials.
During Saturday’s game between Arizona Cardinals and the Carolina Panthers, I found myself hoping the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell would walk out to midfield and call the game because of poor play, shoddy officiating, and terrible announcing by ESPN’s Mike Tirico.
Little did I know that substandard officiating would play a big role in the Detroit/Dallas game late Sunday afternoon.
Goodell should tell his private pilot to get the jet ready for a trip to Detroit today to apologize to the Lions and their fans for what was done to their team on Sunday.
