This Supercut Of Horrible NFL Officiating From This Season Is Proof That The Refs Hate The Saints

For almost all of us, the unrelenting incompetency of NFL officials means no more than a mild frustration or an insurmountable gambling loss that drives a wedge between you and your wife and causes her to cheat on you with her personal trainer. Small stakes shit.

But can you imagine being Saints receiver Tre’Quan Smith? Just last week, moronic refs robbed him of capturing everlasting glory on Drew Brees’ record-breaking TD due to an offensive pass interference call that contained more contact than me with any girl in high school.

Brees would later break Peyton Manning’s career touchdown record with a 5-yard pass to tight end Josh Hill and no one will ever associate Tre’Quan Smith’s name with history ever again. To add insult to injury, the poor bastard caught the record tying TD in the same game.

This injustice was just picked at random from this compilation of clips of the very worst NFL officiating this season. It’s 17 minutes but I feel that’s when the creator of the video just lost hope in the future and gave up.

Upon further review, I have come to the conclusion that the refs just hate the Saints.

This act of incompetence is the one I stopped punching a wall and actually laughed at. The ref’s body started convulsing after seeing the full start. No call. No rationale.

I don’t know why I shared that compilation video with you guys. Just drumming up shitty emotions. I feel worse for having done so.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
