The refs screwed the Detroit Lions tonight and Barry Sanders is not happy.

During tonight’s Monday Night Football game defensive end Trey Flowers was called for two phantom hands to the face penalties that helped the Packers overcome a 13 point deficit in the fourth quarter.

After the game, Flowers spoke to the media and he clearly disagreed with the calls on the field.

““I didn’t think hands to the chest was a penalty,” “I thought hands to the face, but I had him right here in the chest. The second time I changed it to right here [another spot on the chest]. That’s part of a move that I do and, yeah. So, nah, I don’t think that was a penalty, but they did, so . . .

“They saw something different than what actually happened and they called what they thought they saw. I was doing it all game. I didn’t know that was a flag to the chest, so I could change it to [another spot on the collar]. They called it again.”

Fans were irate with refs incompetence.

Even legendary Lions running back Barry Sanders took to Twitter to blast the refs.

It can’t be good when even Barry Sanders is going after the refs.
