The sports world is uniting to get rid of the NFL replacement referees, and Rep. Jeff Flake has joined the cause.
The officials were in the spotlight Tuesday after a blown call that led to the Seattle Seahawks dropping the Green Bay Packers on a last-second “catch” that looked an awful lot like an interception.
“Talk about a comedy of errors,” Flake told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR’s Karie & Chuck. “From the missed interference call to how in the world you could see that as a catch for a touchdown, I just don’t know.”
Flake added that the referees need help, badly, but laughed when asked if there was going to be a Congressional investigation.
“That’s always been so pathetic,” he said. “Congress concerning itself in steroid stuff and everything else, but that’s not what I see happening.”
Flake said he hopes the officials solve the labor dispute soon.
