Yahoo Sports has a headline on its homepage that reads “Vick breaks hand in loss, rips officials.”
I clicked on the link to see how he “ripped” the officials and here are his quote:
“I felt I got hit late. No flag,” the left-handed quarterback said. “At some point something catastrophic is gonna happen. Not to blame the refs, but more precautions should be taken. I’m on the ground all the time in the pocket.”
And here’s his other quote:
“Every time I throw the ball, I’m on the ground,” Vick said. “I get hit in the head. I don’t know why I don’t get the 15-yard flag like everybody else does. I’m not trying to blame the refs. I just want them to take notice.”
So, exactly how is that “ripping” the officials? Sounds to me like he was very respectful and was simply asking that officials pay more attention to some of the late hits.
What do you think?
Love him or hate him we are throwing it back with the NFL’s comeback player of the year and the most exciting QB in the game.
Throw it back with Vick SI covers…
