Fans Are Convinced Video Shows Saints HC Sean Payton Slipping Ref Some Money During Game


We have another NFL conspiracy theory on our hands.

During Sunday night’s Saints-Packers game, a video on Twitter went viral showing Saints head coach Sean Payton mysteriously handing the ref something on the sideline.

Even though it seems fairly obvious that the ref was giving Payton red challenge flag back, fans still ran with the “Payton slipped the ref some money” conspiracy theory.

Look, it’s 2020 and people seem to thing anything is possible. More than anything, we all just really need something to believe in. Even if that “something” is a veteran NFL head coach being dumb enough to slip money to referee during an actual football game.
