OBJ On Officiating: “It’s Us Against The World”


Heading into their contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the New York Giants were winners of six straight. Unfortunately for the G-Men, their winning streak was snapped after falling 24-14. Throughout the game, star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was visibly upset with the officiating for the lack of calls.

After the game, OBJ voiced his displeasure.

“It’s us against the world, in a sense,” Beckham said. “You can’t sit there and rely on refs, obviously. Obviously, that is not the case; you can’t sit there and rely on them, if anybody watched the game [on Sunday]. It’s not that I’m sitting here saying the refs are the reason we lost the game, but there is plenty of calls in the game and anybody can go watch the film. Anybody. Anybody can see exactly what is going on.”

This Sunday, it will be the Giants against the best team in football, as they’ll play host to the Dallas Cowboys.
