Fans Start Conspiracy Theories After NFL Ref Cuts Off Mic While Talking To Another During Bucs-Cowboys Game

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.

Despite an “offsetting penalties” call, fans immediately accused the ref of being up to no good.
