It’s only the first game of the season and fans already believe refs are rigging games.
During Thursday night’s season opening game Bucs offensive lineman Ryan Jensen was penalized for taunting after he mocked Cowboys defensive lineman Carlos Watkins, who got caught throwing a punch in front of a ref.
While discussing the penalty call, one ref told another ref “let’s just say’ before realizing his mic was on and immediately cut it off.
