Meet Gary Clark: four-time Pro-Bowler, two-time Super Bowl Champion, and valedictorian from the Samuel L. Jackson School of Scolding.
In the late ’80s and early ’90s, the former Washington Redskins standout was no slouch on the field. He topped 70 receptions and eclipsed the century mark in five of his 11 seasons.
The team’s official site notes:
In 11 years in the NFL, Clark compiled nearly 700 receptions and nearly 11,000 yards, while collecting 65 career touchdowns. He had four Pro Bowls and two Super Bowls to his name, and was the first receiver in NFL history to have 50 receptions in each of his first 10 years. He had 27 100-yard receiving games as a member of the Redskins, and his numbers dwarf those of current Hall [of Fame] inductee Lynn Swann.
However, if you part-time as a Legends Football League (LFL) — formerly the Lingerie Football League — referee, you won’t like him when he’s angry.
In the following clip, Clark’s quarterback bootlegs around the edge and seemingly breaks the plane of the goal line before a rival tackler bulldozes her into the wall, adding to the runner’s list of regrets in the process.
The referees denied the touchdown, paving the way for a four-letter-laced tirade by Clark (NSFW):
First things first: Why isn’t there a World Cup for this? Secondly, something tells me that officials randomly convene at the booth and tap “slow motion” on a series-to-series basis.
There’s no crying in baseball. There is flopping in soccer.
But by the looks of it, there’s none of the above in the LFL.
Love you, Lady Liberty.
