Kickers usually aren't involved in many headlines, but Robbie Gould made some comments on Twitter Thursday night that will likely get him noticed. The Chicago Bears' team representative called the NFL replacement referees "clueless."
Gould was watching the Arizona Cardinals play the Tennessee Titans Thursday night when he decided to let the world know exactly how he felt regarding the current state of officiating in the NFL.
Watching the coaches get upset on— Robbie Gould (@RobbieGould09) August 24, 2012
@espn because the refs ate clueless @nfl when did you stop caring about the integrity of the game
I understand there is a fine line in negotiations To get the refs back on the field. But I hope both sides can reach a deal soon— Robbie Gould (@RobbieGould09) August 24, 2012
Gould brought up a good point later, too, noting that his issues with the referees have more to do with player safety than anything else.
On a lighter note, we'll assume Gould meant the refs "are" clueless rather than that they "ate" clueless because, well, Alicia Silverstone probably would think that's weird.
