Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace doesn’t seem to believe that his team is getting the same treatment as the other 31 franchises around the NFL.
With the increased awareness for illegal contact, flags have been flying throughout the preseason with calls benefiting the offense, but Wallace says the Dolphins wide receivers are not getting their fair share of the calls.
“Not on our team. We don’t get those calls,” Wallace said, via the Palm Beach Post. “I don’t know why. That’s not our job to play for calls. We play to play football and make plays. The call, that’s extra.”
While the officials may have missed a call that led to Wallace’s comments, fans around the league are probably happy that was the case.
At the rate the laundry has been on the field throughout the preseason, games have been excruciating to watch at times.
To make matters worse, the NFL referees have said they plan to continue calling games the same once the regular season begins, so before we know if a football game could take as long to complete as nine grueling innings of baseball — not including the Chicago Cubs four-hour rain delay.
