"He shouldn't even be able to work at Foot Locker."
The Kansas City Chiefs suffered a brutal 18-16 loss at home against the Steelers last night, despite a dramatic comeback effort late in the fourth that pulled them within two points.
In fact, it seemed as though KC had tied things up with 2:43 remaining after converting on a two-point conversion following a 1-yard touchdown run, but the refs flagged left tackle Eric Fisher for holding- a play that was met with much criticism after the game.
Kansas City's outspoken tight end Travis Kelce bashed the refs after the game for calling a hold against Fisher on the pivotal two-point conversion and he singled out one ref in particular who he says, "shouldn't even be able to work at Foot Locker."
Per USA Today;
"That wasn't a hold on my guy Eric Fisher. I hope 72 doesn't go the entire offseason thinking it was his fault. That was (expletive), flat out."
Kelce added that he believed the call was made because the official "felt bad for James Harrison falling on the ground."
"It's ignorance. The ref, No. 51, shouldn't be able to wear a zebra jersey ever again. He shouldn't even be able to work at (expletive) Foot Locker."
Pittsburgh will now take on the Patriots next Sunday night in the AFC Championship game.
