Barry Sanders, Desmond Howard speak out against referees

Barry Sanders

The officiating in Monday night’s Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers game was so bad it had almost everyone watching commenting about it. A few former players were among those who spoke out against the refs.

Former Lions legend Barry Sanders called out the refs, saying a hands to the face penalty was “terrible.”

Sanders called the officiating “sickening.”

Former Super Bowl MVP Desmond Howard, who played for both teams during his NFL career, was even harsher with his tweets.

Others who were supporting the Packers even recognized how bad things were.

There were three penalties blown by the refs in the fourth quarter that changed the game.

The difference between winning and losing this game means Detroit is now in last place in the division instead of first.

The importance of these missed calls cannot be understated.
