It always comes off bad when athletes blame everything on the refs.Even if the refereeing was objectively terrible, whining about calls typically won’t do you a lot of good with fans.
But we’re going to give Giants defensive lineman Mathias Kiwanuka a pass. Because this quote that he gave the Newark Star-Ledger after last night’s game is solid gold:
“I haven’t been held this much since I was a baby.”
It seemed like the much-maligned replacement refs were a bit reluctant to call judgement penalties like holding. But logic suggests that both teams benefited equally.
So Kiwanuka, while witty, doesn’t really have much of a case here.
