Every team hates the zombie scab refs! Packers fans REALLY hate the zombie scab refs! Hell, I’m a Seahawk fan and I hate the zombie scab refs. It makes no sense that so many people can hate something so much and yet continue to follow. It’s like a zombie parade.
Only a zombie would continue to obsess even when the game became fundamentally unjust. Both teams spent the second half of Monday Night Football getting screwed over by zombie scab refs, but instead of rejecting this broken product, fans of American football in general and of both teams in particular became more engrossed and enraged. That this crescendoed into the worst call/non-call in the history of sports (though not the most important) shouldn’t be surprising.
What does that make us?
Some may argue that Goodell is hardly a zombie mastermind, but Monday Night’s game proves it. Somewhere, he is laughing his zombie master laugh.
