ESPN reporter credits Obama with ending NFL ref lockout
Unless this is atrociously bad satire from the Roger Simon school of failed humor, ESPN reporter John Clayton actually humiliated himself by giving President Obama props for inspiring the NFL to reach an agreement with the NFL Referees Association. No, really:
With President Obama expressing his disappointment with the replacement officiating and poor officiating being the lead story of network news coverage, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had to act — and he did.
The president’s impressive feat? In a rare personal tweet, he made a truly gutsy call, writing, “NFL fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs’ lockout is settled soon.”
Thank goodness for Obama’s brilliant community organizing skills. Why, it’s not as if the NFL was aware the country was united in trashing the replacement refs fiasco.
All hail our savior in chief. Get that man a Nobel Peace Prize.
