Tom Brady blasts NFL for ‘too many penalties’ during Titans-Jaguars

Plenty of NFL players have called out the referees for their inefficient officiating over the past couple of weeks. This time, it’s New England Patriots legend Tom Brady who called for better officiating.

TB12 was watching the game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans, and it’s one that is seeing the Jaguars lead the game by two touchdowns early on.

However, the quality of officiating forced Brady to go to Twitter and tell the referees to stop interfering with the flow of play.

Brady followed that up by saying that he was turning the game off due to the penalties.

Fans who saw the tweets immediately expressed their support for Brady. They claimed that if the six-time Super Bowl winner had to go online to express his frustrations, the league must do something with it as well.

This is not the only time where players have voiced their frustrations with referees. According to Miami Dolphins linebacker Raekwon McMillan, the referee told him to give Brady some space during their lopsided loss in Week 2.

“Tom didn’t say anything but the referee said, ‘Stay off Tom,'” McMillan said this week, via the Miami Herald. “I put my hands up in the air and said ‘I got you.'”

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watts furiously claimed that the refs deliberately missed a couple of penalties during his team’s narrow win over the Jaguars.

“There were a couple of holding calls out there, it’s every week,” Watt said, per USA Today. “The ref literally admitted to me that guy held me on one play, and he didn’t throw the flag. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with that after a play. I look over at the ref and he says, ‘Yes, I saw him hold you, but I didn’t throw the flag.'”

This won’t likely be the final time the referees will be called out for poor officiating.

These players believe that the league should look into the game officials and do something about the situation.
