Brandon Spikes has a couple of opinions on those rascally replacement refs everyone is talking about. 

The New England Patriots are taking on NFL replacement referees, and they are making it a team effort. Moments after the Baltimore Ravens kicked a controversial field goal to finish off the Patriots, 31-30, on Sunday night, all hell broke loose. 

Head coach Bill Belichick grabbed a ref, and linebacker Brandon Spikes grabbed our attention. 

Here are some tweets the irate football star decided to give to his followers after a frustrating conclusion to another Sunday with replacements officiating the games. 

Be warned, NSFW language follows. 

Here is what Spikes decided to tweet after an emotional end to a tightly contested game with the Ravens.

Can someone please tell these fucking zebras foot locker called and they’re needed Back at work !!!! #BreakingPoint

No doubt reacting to fans who noticed that a fine may be coming, Spikes made careful to point out he never actually called out any "refs."

Perhaps he was talking about actual zebras he may have seen on the way home from the game.

Ref ?!?! I never said anything about the “Refs” y’all need to chill out !! #imTru

To end out the night, Spikes went biblical.

I thought after Noah’s Ark & the great flood, God said he wouldn’t punish us again..well how do u explain what happen 2nite ?! Ijs #PoWwWwW

I'm not sure what is more entertaining, the Patriots when they are on a roll and driving down the field, high-octane offense rolling along...

Or this, when everyone from the head coach to their star linebacker are incensed. 

One thing is clear, though. The replacement refs are not winning any popularity contests anytime soon.
