Eli Manning Wants OBJ To Kill Refs With Kindness


Around the league, All-Pro wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is gaining a bad reputation for complaining every time the New York Giants face some adversity. As the most talented player on the roster, it’s not a good look for OBJ to complain every time something doesn’t go his way.

Following New York’s 24-14 defeat to the Pittsburgh Steelers, OBJ was very vocal about his displeasure with the officiating.While there were some questionable calls and no-calls, quarterback Eli Manning believes his star receiver should take a different approach.

“With officials, you want to kill them with kindness . . . He’s got to learn how to warm up to those guys so he can get some calls,” Manning stressed.

We’ll see if OBJ takes this advice as the Giants host division rival Dallas this Sunday night.
