At least one person isn’t upset about a terrible ref call during the NFC Championship game Sunday night.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley, who’s had a history of trolling his fans and haters alike during the regular season, is apparently bringing his sense of humor to the postseason.
In case you missed it, the refs missed a major pass interference call during Sunday’s NFC Championship game. The hit was so blatant and so late in the game, flagging it could have changed the entire outcome of the game.

Obviously, the refs didn’t call pass interference and the Rams went on to win in overtime. Many argue the Rams would have won regardless, since the Saints did make a number of catastrophic plays, but Todd Gurley isn’t taking the refs’ help for granted.
Shortly after the game, the three-time pro-bowler posted a (likely doctored) Instagram photo expressing his gratitude to the refs:

The post is pretty out of line, or at least way too soon. Which is why he’s already gotten close to 19,000 comments on it in just over 12 hours. Various NFL players have already commented on the photo. Jalen Ramsey wrote, “aye chill.” Saquon Barkley called Gurley a “fool” for the post, and Chris Long put it most appropriately, writing, “You have less chill than any man in human history.”
Who am I to disagree?
