PFT – The Packers weren’t happy about the outcome of last night’s game against the Seahawks. How happy weren’t they? Offensive lineman T.J. Lang told 97.1 The Ticket in Detroit on Tuesday that, during the flight home from Seattle, the players discussed the possibility of going on strike — or simply taking a knee on every offensive snap — until the lockout of the officials ends. “Whatever it takes, it’s just a total embarrassment to everybody watching the game, the players in the game, it’s not fun to be part of something like that,” Lang told the Valenti & Foster show. “If it keeps going on, it’s going to get ugly. . . . Going into a game worrying about the refs more than the other team, it’s a problem. The NFL, the Commissioner, if they don’t take action after last night. . . . That should be the last straw.”
Chances of this actually happening are -1% but still. I would love somebody to have the balls to actually do this. Just a team that I didn’t bet on and with none of my fantasy players on it to just snap the ball and kneel every single time. Like the Browns or something to say “fuck it, we suck anyway, might as well stand for something.” Somebody to man up and stop whining on Twitter and actually make a stand on the field. Either that or roll up to the commissioner’s office with your entire offensive line and literally beat Roger Goodell up. That would probably be better although I’d imagine the fines would be pretty hefty.
PS- It’s going to be so funny when the refs come back this weekend, get a standing ovation when they trot out on the field, then immediately make a horrible call because they suck too.
