Brandon Spikes on Replacement Refs: Can Someone Please Tell These Zebras Foot Locker Called?

| by Alex Groberman

Nobody likes the replacement referees, but most of us have found a better way to deal with it than New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes. Following his team’s 31-30 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night, Spikes took to Twitter and posted the following ill-advised comment:

Can someone please tell these f**king zebras foot locker called and they’re needed Back at work !!!! #BreakingPoint

Shortly after that message went out to his 277.5K followers, Spikes came to his senses and tried to backtrack in the worst way imaginable. Seriously, we’re not exaggerating – it was the worst.

Ref ?!?! I never said anything about the “Refs” y’all need to chill out !! #imTru

I thought after Noah’s Ark & the great flood, God said he wouldn’t punish us again..well how do u explain what happen 2nite ?! Ijs #PoWwWwW

Worst. Cover. Ever.

Between Bill Belichick’s unfortunate altercation with one of the officials and Spikes’ comments, it’s probably a safe bet that the Patriots will be making a sizeable donation to the league at some point in the next few days.
