The Chiefs-Rams preseason game featured Rams’ Lamarcus Joyner, Chiefs’ Jeremy Maclin being ejected, and a ref accidentally referring to “St. Louis.”
A Saturday night preseason football game in Los Angeles between the Rams and Chiefs featured a double ejection as Jeremy Maclin and Lamarcus Joyner were thrown out of the game for fighting in the final minute of the first half.
The referee announced the two were being removed from the game due to “tussling,” and while announcing the penalties he forgot the Rams franchise had relocated since last season and misidentified Joyner as a “St. Louis” player, according to The MMQB.com.
