Not only did Vikings coach Brad Childress try to make his quarterback look bad (Bill Belichick would NEVER do that!, says Tom Brady) after Minnesota’s loss to the Packers on Sunday night, but he wasn’t very nice while talking about the game’s officials either.
It most likely will land him in trouble, writes ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
According to Mortensen’s league sources, the NFL is sure to fine Childress after he called the loss “the worst officiated game I've ever seen."
Yep, that’ll pretty much do it.
We told you Monday that the NFL admitted the officials blew their decision to overturn TE Visanthe Shiancoe’s 17-yard TD. But here's another problem with what Childress said after he heard from the league about the officials' screw-up.
From the report:
Spokesman Greg Aiello said league policy is not to comment on conversations between (Carl) Johnson and the clubs. Aiello said Johnson "is obligated to give his factual opinion of any call that is questioned by a club." But the policy also "states that all such conversations are confidential and are not to be discussed publicly," Aiello said.
Since Childress told the media that Carl Johnson, the head of officiating, said the replay official was incorrect and he was “disappointed” with the ultimate decision, those are comments that will not sit well in the NFL’s front office.
