    They suck! But the real refs are a tad better.. I've seen many horrible calls made by the so called good refs !!!! All the announcers are retarded!!

    They've lost control of this game and it's only going to get worse. At least John Fox is out of challenges.

    Saw a great comment on Deadspin... Tonight's game is Calvinball (as in Calvin and Hobbes), where no one has any idea what the rules are.

    The ref are fuckin terrible. When you have to have an NFL paid "consultant" on the sideline and in the booth watching, should be pretty apparent there is something wrong.

    I enjoy how the new refs spot the football whereever they feel like.

    There was a fumble recovered at the 40 yard line. There was a 15-yard penalty on the play.

    So they spotted the ball at the 17 yard line.

    Huh?

    based on their experience, i think they are doing a fairly good job.
    most of the bad called were corrected. the main problem i see is the games are taking too long

    A 9th grade History teacher makes a great ref.
    And dont forget about the 11th grade AP chemistry teacher. Sounds qualified to me.

    They're making mistakes, but I'm sure you would find a lot of mistakes from the old referees as well, if they were scrutinized as much as these guys. The average yearly pay for the old refs was $149,000, plus all travel expenses, as well as a per diem for food while they travel. They also received a pension. Remember, this is only for a 16 week gig. What they do is not so specialized that any of the replacement refs can't do, if given a little bit of time to get acclimated to the speed and size of the NFL, as well as being in the spotlight on a national stage. If I was a striking NFL referee, I would be very worried. Losing $150 g's per year is a big deal in and of itself. But losing a sweet gig like that, where you're on the field on national TV (many times), calling games that you love watching anyways, well, it would suck to lose it.
