Replacement Ref To LeSean McCoy: ‘I Need You For My Fantasy Team’

(WSCR) This can’t be a good sign for Roger Goodell, the NFL and the current state of the replacement referees.

Aside from botched calls and extended delays, at least one referee has made a Fantasy Football reference during a game.

“They’re like fans, kind of though,” Eagles running back LeSean McCoy told 94WIP in Philadelphia. “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 [team].'”

McCoy said some of the refs appear to be intimidated by some of the players.

“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,” McCoy said Monday. “Don’t you know (the ref) started stuttering? I’m like ‘What’s this?’”
