The touchdown call at the end of Monday night’s Green Bay at Seattle game became a topic of discussion on a national level and might help end the referee lockout.

As if that wasn’t significant enough, now we learn the play also cost Charles Barkley money.

Sir Charles was a guest on Philadelphia’s 97.5 The Fanatic, with Mike Missanelli, on Tuesday morning, and the NBA legend admitted he had money on the Packers. 

“I don’t think I’ve ever been this mad in my entire life,” Barkley said. “I got robbed.”

Barkley didn’t say how much he lost, but the money didn’t seem to be the issue as much as the fact that he lost it unfairly.

“I’m just angry,” he said. “I love to gamble. I can live with winning and losing, but I don’t ever want to get jobbed like I did.”

Like any gambler who lost a heartbreaker, Barkley remembers every play that cost him on Monday night. “I got screwed on the roughing the passer,” he said. “I got screwed on the pass interference.  I got screwed on the interception, and I found out today that they actually have a real official in the replay booth who could’ve overruled that?”

“I got screwed four times,” Barkley concluded. “And that makes it even worse.”
