Another week, another NFL officiating dilemma.
During the Rams-49ers clash on Sunday night, San Francisco running back Jerick McKinnon seemed to be touched down by a Rams defender before hitting the ground and casually tossing the ball and getting ready for the next play. However, the call on the field was a fumble, as the referees seemed to think that he had not been touched and was giving himself up.
After a lengthy discussion, the call was eventually overturned and the 49ers remained in possession of the ball. However, many prominent users on Twitter shared their thoughts about the controversial play, roasting the refs not only for the initial call but for the amount of time it took for them to overturn it.
Fortunately, the officiating crew dodged the biggest bullet and corrected their mistake. But as we all know, no one is safe from the wrath of Twitter, and these referees will likely hear all about the incident after the game is through.
