Politics in the NFL. Don’t want to admit mistake. Can’t do anything to fix it. Cheating. Unsportsmanlike conduct penalty…BS!

Touchdown on opening possession. RGIII 16/17 for 149 yards. Multiple players working together to push the Giants out of the end zone.

The Redskins are obviously not the GREATEST TEAM in the NFL, but we still love them and will always cheer no matter what especially when the referees mess up but DON’T FIX THEIR MISTAKES. I was at the game and the Redskins were playing very well. The referees were just idiots.

The Washington Redskins were told it was FIRST AND TEN, not THIRD AND ONE and Coach Kyle Shanahan called the play that was supposed to be done…for a first and ten.

Referee Jeff Triplette signaled third down but the head linesman — with Washington in a ‘hurry-up’ situation — incorrectly motioned for the chain crew to advance the chains, which caused the down boxes to read first down.

Following a Washington incomplete pass, the chains were moved back and the down boxes correctly reset to fourth down.

I understand that the Redskins did not have any time-outs left, but saying that is why you didn’t fix the mistake you made is complete bullshit. Triplette said “I feel like we signaled third down. The stakes just got moved incorrectly.”

Dear Triplette, I feel like you need to be fired. Maybe the Redskins would have won, maybe they still would have lost, but all that matters though is the fact the officials ruined the end of that game with the most embarrassing mistake ever.

NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said in a statement Monday,

 Referee Jeff Triplette and his crew erred on multiple fronts during the Washington Redskins’ final drive against the New York Giants on Sunday night.

The Redskins have absolutely no chance of making it to the NFC playoff contention and have a firm grip of placing last in the NFC East. The Redskins beat the Giants last season at Fed Ex Field 17-16. December 29, 2013 the Redskins will be playing the Giants again, and I hope 1. THERE ARE BETTER REFS WHO DO THEIR JOB CORRECTLY/ADMIT TO THEIR MISTAKES and 2. THAT THE REDSKINS WILL KICK THE NEW YORK GIANTS ASSES at that game.

Hail to the Redskins. Blandino and Triplette, I hope you know that your politics for the game were noted. Blandino needs to make this right, make up for the mistake of your idiotic, worthless refs who cheat at the game.

And for all of you Giants fans or any other NFL fans– I’m sorry if this article upsets you, but when a mistake is that BIG, something needs to be done.Redskins2

MdolphinsRichie Incognito, a guard for the Miami Dolphins is currently indefinitely suspended for conduct detrimental to the team.

Jonathan Martin, offensive tackle for the Dolphins has been allegedly bullied by his teammate, Incognito. Martin checked himself into a South Florida hospital to be treated for emotional distress. This emotional distress caused Martin to leave the team on October 28, 2013.  Martin’s attorney, David Cornwell, said in a statement issued late Thursday night that Incognito and other teammates bullied Martin to the point that he felt like he had no choice but to leave the team.

The final incident that occurred to cause Martin to leave the team was in the team’s cafeteria when he sat down to eat. After sitting down the other players he joined got up and walked away and he was left to sit alone. I don’t know about you, but this does not seem like something you do to a teammate. There were also texts from Incognito using racial slurs in threatening texts to Martin.

IncognitoIncognito was told by coaching staff to “toughen up” Martin. The general manager, Jeff Ireland, told Martin’s agent that the player should “punch” Incognito to make the alleged bullying stop. HOW WOULD THIS HELP ANYTHING? “Violence is NEVER the answer,” yet the general manager said Martin should respond back with VIOLENCE. How would this help Martin? Isn’t it possible that Incognito [or other teammates] would bully Martin even more and harder? Also, if the general manager knew the tiniest bit about the possible bullying of Martin, WHY DIDN’T HE DO ANYTHING? WHY DIDN’T HE TRY TO STOP IT OR TALK WITH THE OTHER PLAYERS? This could have saved the Dolphins a lot of trouble.

HeadCoachIncognito is denying the bullying of Martin and said the threatening texts and racial slurs were just him playing around and that is their “brotherhood.” I don’t know about your friends, family, teammates, or whoever else you hang out with or see, but TO ME THESE DO NOT SEEM very brotherhood-like.

Even Incognito’s ex-teammate from the St. Louis Rams called him a ‘scumbag.’ Cam Cleeland, the ex-teammate of Incognito said he dealt with hazing on a very personal level when he came into the league. Cleeland said,

I’m not afraid to say that he was an immature, unrealistic scumbag. When it came down to it, he had no personality, he was a locker room cancer, and he just wanted to fight everybody all the time. It was bizarre beyond belief.

It is said to believe that the 30 year-old guard will reportedly consider filing a grievance against the team.

DolphinsAs a college student, I hear a lot about bullying, hazing, emotional distress, and harassment. All of these things which are frowned upon no matter what you are a part of. To see that this is happening in the NFL is beyond ridiculous and I thought that an NFL team would be supportive of all their players, just like a family should be.
