Barkley among those who had Packers
By Reid Cherner, USA TODAY
The last second pass in the Seattle-Green Bay game on Monday Night was a swing of millions of dollars. Charles Barkley was one of those on the swing.
Barkley, who had the Packers and giving 3, told Mike Missanelli of 97.5 The Fanatic that “I got screwed four times, man” referring to the last second play and a couple of calls previously.
“Bro, I don’t think I’ve ever been this made in my entire life,” said Barkley who added that he can “take winning and lose but I don’t want to ever get jobbed like I did” on Monday.
When Missanelli asked if it was a six-figure bet, Barkley said no that “it’s just regular season bro” but did say it was “a lot, a lot a lot” and then did admit it was a five-figure wager.
Later in the interview, Barkley talked about Tiger Woods and said he should be shooting back at his critics like Greg Norman who said Woods was intimidated by Rory McIlroy.
“A lot of people have trashed Tiger,” Barkley said. “He don’t have to take the high road…he needs to keep a list.”
