Arian Foster caused all of this and we thank him for it.
Complaints about the officiating fueled conspiracies online about the league being “rigged” and the former Houston Texans running back gave it some life after he sarcastically talked about the NFL being rigged in the latest episode of the Barstool Sports podcast “Macrodosing.”
“We were really dedicated to it. So, it was more so like that’s what practice was about – it was about practicing the script. This is what goes on, this is what we have to do … WWF, so it’s like we know what’s going to happen. You still gotta put on a show,” the four-time Pro Bowl running back.
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey later joked he was “just following the script” when he allowed Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase to rack up 200 yards on him.
More athletes joined in:
Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons also used “the script” joke to refer to his team’s most recent loss in the playoffs.
Unfortunately, conspiracy theorists will still think these guys are telling the truth through these jokes. Sometimes you have to smile at those people as you witness mental illness.
Officials just get calls wrong and it sucks when it happens when it’s your team. The same people that complain will still watch every game.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
