Whaaaa, whaaaa, whaaaa. I am tired already of listening to everybody whine about the replacement referees that seem to be making all the bad calls that apparently were not there last year during the NFL football games. Really?
In my opinion, this whining is mostly a ploy by the press to sympathize with theÂ labor battle going on between the “real” referees (The NFL Referees Association) andÂ the NFL.Â Don’t be drawn into it. It’s the same battle that goes on every year between the teacher’s union and the limited public monies.
With the schools, it is done under the guise of doing what’s best for the children. In the NFL it is spoiled professional athletes who are just acting like children. Either way, it’s all just bullshit. It is all about money and nothing more.
These referees make over $170,000 per year for what, 20 football games?! How much do YOU make? They don’t even have referees in the NBA anymore and nobody seems to be whining about that. Besides, we all know that every call by the referee is right and wrong. It only depends on what side of the stadium you’re sitting on.
