Fuck the NFLRA who gives a shit about these moops. They are part+time employees with lucrative real jobs. I hope the NFL breaks em.
I can see the conspiracy theories already
So are these refs working Sat & Sun?
As much as ref's annoy me this situation is going to be a complete clusterfuck. these guys are being recruited from high school leagues
I don't understand what the NFL is trying to do here. Why are they cheaping out on the refs?
The NFL is a 9 BILLION dollar a year biz. What the refs are asking for the owners could find under their cushions.
Nobody thinks this is a big deal now but until some team gets screwed and misses the playoffs by a game and then we'll see.
The biggest stumbling block is the refs are demanding a pension plan which is rediculous and the NFL wants a few more crews so the current crews will ref less frequently and not make as much money but in that aspect it really is pennies to the NFL.
THe NFL has been cheaping out on the refs for years and years. All the refs had other jobs during the week. THis is nothing new.
as long as it's not replacement cheerleaders
I say keep the replacement ones all year.Fuck them!
Every week we were talking about a blown call that the old refs blew anyway. What's the big deal?
I heard a couple of the replacement refs last ref job was in the lingerie league, and that's not a joke!
bring back the XFL!!
at this point i dont care, the refs are getting better and as tom brady said last week about the officiating "i dont care who is out there"..... lets get this season started
as long as Maurice jones Drew still holds out..I play his owner week one and i picked up Rashad jennings to fuck him
at least it gives Cowboys' fans an excuse next Thursday
