Even though Seahawks running back Adrian Peterson couldn’t play in Tuesday’s game which they lost to the Rams but he believes they got robbed by officials with two blown calls. Peterson went on an Instagram rant and blamed their loss on the officials.
Here is his post on Instagram:
“I don’t make excuses and I also feel any situation can be overcome, but, opportunities are all you need to create change. We got robbed of that last night on two critical plays which resulted in a 7 point swing and took away great field position that would’ve given us a chance to put points on the board. We then have a clear missed PI call that ended our opportunity to right the previous wrong of the officials. In critical moments of the game, they were presented with opportunities that we were not due to plays that should’ve been reviewable.”
Adrian Peterson also wants the NFL’s officiating department to be held accountable for such losses.
“These are literally life changing moments that shouldn’t be overlooked. I feel there are certain plays where officials should come together, review, and get the call right. Especially plays that are being displayed on million dollar Jumbotrons where the entire stadium and every football loving fan across the world can see.”
Peterson is an OG so he can go on rants like this.
He isn’t wrong the officiating in the NFL has been terrible for several decades it has gotten to the point people are surprised when a game isn’t decided by the refs.
That is sad and needs to change because the playoffs are coming and every year the refs screw something up and cost a team a shot at the Super Bowl.
Which is the opposite of what they should be doing.
