Is Golden Tate Now The Most Hated Player In The NFL?
Okay, I’m sure every NFL fan out there has now seen and heard all of today’s talk about the debacle in Seattle last night between the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers.
With the Packers leading 12-7 in the forth quarter and time running out on the Seahawks, QB Russell Wilson threw a hail mary into the end zone for one last gasp. The ball headed toward five Packers defenders and two Seattle receivers.
The Hawks Golden Tate can clearly be seen pushing the Packers Sam Shields in the back before the ball even got there. Forget the Touchdown call, that shove should have eliminated the final play all together. But of course these replacement refs did not call it and the play continued. The next step of this final play involved the Packers M.D. Jennings. Jennings clearly got to the ball before Golden Tate and it looked like he had complete control of it when both players hit the ground.
Myself, just like millions of NFL fans who were watching the game, thought GAME OVER…Packers win. Not so fast! I was completely floored when the ref raised his arms and signaled the touchdown call. Unreal! I then thought, okay they will definitely overturn this bad call when they review it upstairs. To my surprise, as well as America’s surprise, the play would stand and the Seattle Seahawks end up winning the game 14-12. Complete highway robbery!
The real surprise came after the game. Golden Tate was being interviewed by ESPN and the reporter asked him about the shove he made on Sam Shields. Tate kept repeating “Don’t know what you’re talking about!”. Golden Tate knows deep down that he did not make that catch but I guess he would never admit it. Show some humility man! Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll were also classless as they were celebrating as if they won this game fair and square which they obviously didn’t.
I didn’t know too much about Golden Tate before this year, only that he came out of Notre Dame and has done nothing in the NFL. He seems like an immature jerk. The Dallas Cowboys fans already hate this punk because of the cheap shot hit that he put on Dallas linebacker Sean Lee in the Seahawks-Cowboys game last week. Watch your back Tate! You may have become a marked man.
Finally, can we please get the regular NFL refs back on the field? This has become laughable after last night’s robbery in Seattle.
