The frequently enraged coach delivered some harsh words in the direction of the replacement stooges following the game, boldly going against the NFL’s wishes that coaches resist the urge of trashing the officiating crews.
“I don’t know. It’s interesting. I don’t have the pulse on this game. What was it exactly? Us? Them? Some crazy, wild calls. Were they accurate? Weren’t they? We’ll see. I have a headache (from yelling), though. I have a darned headache. A lot them didn’t seem like they were in the ballpark.”
Harbaugh’s just saying what everyone else is thinking. Literally everyone. There’s not one person who doesn’t share the same view.
You have to believe this issue is going to get infinitely more repulsive should the NFL and NFL Referees Association continue to treat progress like a disease. Playing nice in the preseason is one thing, but when these decisions start affecting the outcome of games that actually matter, it will become Thunderdome for all parties involved. In a sick, twisted way, I can’t wait.
