Redskins' Trent Williams says refs insulted him on the field
Trash-talk between players is commonplace in football. But ... from the referees?
Trent Williams "refs were getting in their heads..They were unprofessional. Garbage a** disrespectful mother f***... I'm at a lost for words— Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna) November 17, 2013
NFL.com is reporting that the league is looking into the matter.
"I just don't think there's no room for you to have to take that from the team and the refs," Williams said. "I think it's very unprofessional and it sucks. I'm at a loss for words. You never expect that as a player going into a game to have to beef with the refs also."
Fellow Redskins offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger confirmed Williams statement.
"That's exactly what Mr. Umpire said," Lichtensteiger said. "He walked in between me and Trent when he said it."
If this is true, that's just ... nuts.
