LeSean McCoy had some amusing stories to tell about the NFL's replacement officials during a radio appearance on Monday. Well, they were amusing unless you happen to be a fan who enjoys seeing the game played and officiated properly.
McCoy and the hosts of 94WIP Player’s Lounge roared with laughter when the Philadelphia running back told of Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis intimidating an official during the Eagles-Ravens game Sunday.
“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. “Don’t you know [the ref] started stuttering? I’m like ‘what’s this?!’”
The yuks continued when McCoy told of an official informing him, "I need you for my fantasy" team.
“They’re like fans, kind of though,” McCoy said of the fill-in officials. “I’ll be honest, they’re like fans."
Hilarious, right? Maybe for McCoy, whose Eagles managed to escape the game with a 17-16 victory that included two controversial calls that went their way. The Ravens and their fans probably weren't too thrilled, though, seeing that Lewis and quarterback Joe Flacco had already expressed their frustration with the NFL's lockout of the regular officials following the game.
