Saints’ Cam Jordan hilariously doubles down on diss of refs after blown call
Cam Jordan wasn’t pulling any punches after Sunday’s loss to the LA Rams.
The New Orleans Saints defensive end was involved in a controversial play in the second quarter of the eventual 27-9 defeat. Jordan recovered a Jared Goff fumble on third down and returned it 82 yards to the house, only to find that the refs had blown the play dead prematurely. The fumble ruling was upheld upon review, but the Saints were robbed of a touchdown and had to start the drive deep in their own territory instead.
After the game, Jordan was critical of the referees and even dropped a Foot Locker reference for good measure.
Cam Jordan said usually you let the play happen, instead of blowing the play dead. Dropped a "Foot Locker" reference when describing the referee. pic.twitter.com/F8J5OfZKAs

“You could say a touchdown got taken away,” he said. “I didn’t even hear the whistle, grabbed the ball 15, 20 yards down and allegedly a whistle was blown. I mean, clearly a whistle was blown where normally you let the play happen. Any Foot Locker, I mean, referee usually tells you [that] you let the play happen and then you go back and review the play.”
Jordan then took to Twitter, quoting the video of his remarks and hilariously doubling down by saying that he meant “no disrespect to Foot Locker.”

The four-time Pro Bowler Jordan had every reason to be upset, but he may still be hearing from the league office for the thinly-veiled shot. Granted, this isn’t the first time an NFL player has referenced Foot Locker in the context of bad officiating.
