Kansas City Chiefs fans are already unhappy with the announcement of Carl Cheffers serving as the head referee for Super Bowl 57.
Cheffers also officiated Super Bowl 51 (between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons) and Super Bowl 55 (between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers). You may recall that there were several questionable calls that went against the Chiefs in Super Bowl 55.
In total, officials penalized the Chiefs 11 times for 120 yards, while Tampa Bay was penalized a mere four times for 39 yards. So you can probably guess how some Chiefs fans reacted to the announcement of Cheffers leading the Super Bowl 57 officiating crew.

The Bucs scored two touchdowns in the second quarter against the Chiefs that were largely aided by penalty calls. A Tyrann Mathieu interception off of Brady was nullified by a holding penalty on Charvarius Ward. Rob Gronkowski later scored on a 17-yard touchdown reception.
Late in the quarter, Mike Evans drew a 34-yard pass interference penalty from Bashaud Breeland. That led to an Antonio Brown touchdown reception, and the game was essentially over from there.
The Chiefs will try to reach the Super Bowl for the third time in five years when they host Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
