NFL Ref Jeff Triplette Is Back, And Twitter Is Mocking Him Relentlessly

If you’re like me, you’re sort of surprised at how NFL ref Jeff Triplette has been assigned to work the playoffs, I mean, considering his two rather egregious boners earlier this season: one involving the Bengals. But here he is working the Cincinnati-San Diego AFC Wild Card game, and already he’s been under the hood three times for reviews.

In the incident last month involving Cincinnati, Triplette incorrectly overturned a call on the field after video review … even though the initial call was correct. The NFL later apologized for that one.

Now Triplette is back, a fact that has delighted Twitter no end.

When it gets to the point where assigning a referee to a particular playoff game is a distraction in itself, perhaps it’s time to stop being stubborn and move him somewhere else.

Or not. Because the tweets so far are more entertaining than the game.
