An eye doctor from Louisiana, who is obviously a New Orleans Saints fan, is offering his services for free to NFL refs following Sunday’s debacle against the Los Angeles Rams.
In case you missed it, the refs officiating the NFC Championship Game absolutely shafted the Saints with a no-call on a blatant hit late in the fourth quarter (watch here). The hit should have garnered both pass interference and helmet-to-helmet penalties, but not a single flag was thrown.
Had the correct call been made, the Saints would have been able to run the clock down almost all the way and kicked a game-winning field goal. Obviously that didn’t happen. They had to kick with almost two minutes left on the clock, the Rams tied it up and then won in overtime.
After the brutal loss, Louisiana Family Eyecare offered its services for free to NFL refs before next season “to prevent the atrocity that occurred” in the NFC title game.
“After having time to consider things we will GLADLY provide no cost eye exams to all NFL officials prior to next season to prevent the atrocity that occurred tonight. We would hate for someone else to feel our pain,” the Facebook post read.
The NFL admitted to head coach Sean Payton that the refs blew the call. Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman gleefully admitted he should have been flagged. Todd Gurley just as gleefully gave a tip of the cap to the refs with a hilarious Instagram post.
Everyone knows the refs botched this one — badly. Eye exams are certainly not the worst idea.
