Referee Had Eagles' McCoy On His Fantasy Team In Ravens Game

New, comments

This debacle that is the replacement referees in the NFL so incredible that it could not have been scripted for a horror movie any better than this. A few days after a replacement official was removed because his Facebook page showed him to be a huge fan of the New Orleans Saints, it not has been reported that a referee in the game between the Baltimore Ravens and Philadelphia Eagles told RB LeSean McCoy that he was on his fantasy team.

A story on CBS Philly reports that McCoy mentioned that a ref told him:

"They're like fans, kind of though," McCoy said. "I'll be honest, they're like fans. One of the refs was talking about his fantasy team, like 'McCoy, come on, I need you for my fantasy,' ahhh, what?!"

An NFL spokesman said that officials are not permitted to play fantasy football. Does that include the replacements? Oops.
