The Detroit Lions just can’t catch a break from the NFL regarding the referees from last Monday’s game.
It is reported by ESPN’s Michael Rothstein that safety Tracy Walker III has been fined by the NFL $12,500 for criticizing the officiating from last week’s controversial 23-22 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

This came possibly as a response after Walker was penalized for the ‘helmet-to-helmet’ hit to Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison. He was not reportedly fined on the hit to Allison.
Down below is the YouTube video that has the officiating comments from the Lions safety.
Maybe someone’s feelings got hurt regarding those comments, because that was the cold truth that Walker and other players said from that game.
