NFL admits they should not have ejected Panthers Luke Kuechly

luke kuechlyAfter Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly was penalized and ejected from Sunday’s loss to Green Bay for making contact with an official, injured teammate Chase Blackburn referred to the call as “complete bull” on Twitter.

A day later, Blackburn was still upset with the ejection of Kuechly, and called on the league to issue a statement saying back judge Steve Freeman erred in judgment.

“I would be disappointed if they didn’t issue a statement on it, in reality,” Blackburn said Monday. “Officials are held accountable, too. That’s how I look at it.”

Well Chase, it happened. According to Ed Werder of ESPN, the NFL admitted they were wrong.
