I heard earlier today LeSean McCoy tweeted that one of the officials said to him "C'mon McCoy, I need you today. I have you on my fantasy team". Between last night, the '4th Timeout', the Saints fan they had to take off officiating a Saints game, and this, its just beyond embarrassing now.

Also, there's no way the officials are the greedy ones. The league was planning to cut their pension by more than half; how is that fair? The league is a cash cow and they are hurting the integrity of the game by being cheap and silly.

The "REAL" officials ain't much better....and they're a greedy bunch of dickbags that make all the idiots in the NHL look sane....frak 'em all.... I'll deal with this re-learning process to get legit and FULL-TIME refs


'Relearning'? Most of these officials NEVER officiated NFL football in the first place! Or even Division I-A football (FBS/FCS/whatever it is now). This is way beyond relearning, especially when the league seems to have spent about as much time vetting these guys as I spend going to my mailbox to get the mail :P

Talk about greedy, the league makes how many billions of dollars? And the officials make pittance even compared to a backup long snapper.

I saw that a few minutes ago too, ridiculous. The league has no shame but all they care about is winning their lastest p*$$ing contest and not having the nuclear disaster happen (a bad call decide a game late). They've put in so many ridiculous fail-safes that weren't there under the regular refs that games take another half hour, and there's STILL nonsense calls or non-calls that wind up happening.

And if you want full-time refs, then freaking pay them like full-time refs.

And these officals are PART-TIME EMPLOYEES, the big bitch is they don't want to give up their other six-figure jobs.....WAH

Not to mention they're crying a river over the NFL wanting to hire MORE refs....again.... WAH

Like I said, I'd rather live through this purge the old tenured fossils out of the system and get people in there that do this FULL-TIME that work and learn from their mistakes mid-week...hell send 'em to practice with the teams even

Anyone remember Ed Hochuli?? The "real officials" fvck up just as badly too.....

It's like all the hockey folk just blindly blaming Bettman for another lockout....gotta look at the big picture here......

Take away the off-field officials (which the regular refs don't have) and extra checks and balances they have for these replacement refs and we'll see if that's true. It's not even true now with all that, and extra delays.

Again, if you want them to be full-time employees pay them like full-time employees. Just because $75-100k a year is more than most people make in their jobs that means it's okay for a trillion-dollar industry to pay people who affect the game that much a comparative pittance. I guess by that standard players should take $500k a year and be happy with that since it's more than most people make. Or that people should be compelled to give up their jobs and want to be full-time if being a ref pays less than what other job they normally have.

You're also ignoring a big part of this is they want to take away the refs' pensions. Which again, would be about .00001 percent of the NFL's budget. I'm actually surprised you're so pro-league on this one since you hate Goodell, not to mention how much you rag on fans for getting on the refs in hockey.

I don't disagree the NFL refs should be held more accountable and it should be a full-time job but there also has to be some more financial incentive to be a full-time ref. If you want to nuke it fine...it's going to take YEARS, not weeks to get guys as good as the 'not so great' refs are now. And it's going to be even harder to find people that want to be refs if it's a full-time job paying less than other occupations, without benefits.

As far as Bettman, it's hard not to blame him when basically every big lockout in NHL history has happened under his tenure. I don't buy the whole 'puppet of the owners' crap when there's a fine of $1 million for any owner talking about the lockout. Or when he's the guy negotiating the deal, not Jeremy Jacobs.

There is a huge difference in the quality of the game without the professionally trained refs.

That was appointment TV for me. Ray Lewis is my favorite football player of all-time and a great human being. I have it on DVR and will watch when needed for a spiritual boost.
