It was a strange call. A bad call.
If you were a Seattle Seahawk fan (or just were invested in them) you yelled it at the television in your living room or at your friends in the bar — Seattle had arguably the best short yardage back in the NFL waiting for a handoff to try to win them the Super Bowl and beat the Patriots, why throw a slant pass into a crowded line of scrimmage?
You weren’t alone — NBA players were tweeting out their confusion and frustration as well. Starting with Seattle native Jamal Crawford, who expressed the pain of a city.
Even guys who grew up watching soccer were even confused.
But not every NBA player was sad.
