Between Sunday and last nights game between the Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs, we saw some absolutely atrocious roughing the passer penalties, and may be the worst two day stretch of the calls in NFL history.
I’ll admit, I’m all for player safety in football, considering the damaging toll it takes on the body overtime, but the rules have gotten so ticky tack that players can’t even tackle the quarterback anymore without getting penalized.
It’s genuinely hard to watch, and it doesn’t feel like football anymore.
This call on Sunday in favor of Tom Brady was pretty suspect:
This may be the WORST roughing the passer penalty I’ve ever seen. Embarrassingly bad call. The Falcons got screwed.
I mean good Lord, the NFL just needs to let defensive backs play on the defensive line, and defensive linemen play in the backfield at this point, because I don’t know what else Jones could do there besides grab him by the leg, and they’d probably throw a flag on that, too.
Fans, players, and even announcers are getting fed up with the direction the league is going, and one announcer in particular?
Hall of Fame and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman.
After the penalty was thrown, Aikman, who basically had his career cut short due to taking too many hits, simply couldn’t keep the disgust inside anymore, as he told the players:
“My hope is that the competition committee looks at this in the next set of meetings and we take the dresses off.”
Troy Aikman can GET BENT for his “take the dresses off” comment during #MondayNightFootball. Are you freaking kidding me? @NFL I’ll be anxiously awaiting your BS apology statement. That was some crap. Gross.
Can’t believe the number of people getting upset about Troy Aikman saying “take the dresses off”. Good Lord you tiny little people with tiny little brains. So easily bruised, so easily offended. You are truly what is wrong with the planet today. #takethedressesoff
To those who find Troy Aikman’s”take the dresses off” comment to be misogynistic,please grow up.We have a serious fight against true misogyny on our hands and cannot alienate moderates and independents with cultural nitpicking like this. It’s football not day care.
