Benjamin Watson is not going down without a fight.
The New Orleans Saints tight end is retiring after 15 years in the NFL, so that missed pass interference call ruined everything that he wanted to accomplish before he stepped away from the game.
On Thursday, the league office still hadn’t said one word about that terrible non-call, so Watson took to Twitter, tagged Commissioner Roger Goodell, and made sure he read what he had to say.
“Your continued silence on this matter is unbecoming of the position you hold, detrimental to the integrity of the game and disrespectful and dismissive to football fans everywhere.”
The controversial play came in the fourth quarter with the teams tied at 20 with Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman clashing helmets with Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis before a pass from Drew Brees arrived. The non-call forced the Saints to kick a field goal earlier than they would’ve had to, and gave enough time for the Rams to tie the game and eventually win it in overtime.
