Play the Game and Stop Whining

Play the Game and Stop Whining

In the football playoffs over the weekend, there were several incorrect calls by officials, at least one costing the Raiders a tie at the end of regulation rather than the loss the suffered. There were also some inexplicable errors by players, most notably the Dallas quarterback running out the clock while behind instead of passing at the very end of the game.

You play the hand you’re dealt. You can’t go home crying about unfairness later. No football game outcome has ever been reversed after the game because of an official’s error.

Sort of like life.
