Anyone who pays attention to sports had to know that replacement referee costumes would be popular this Halloween. However, you would have to be pretty bold to be an NFL star and go down that road, but Denver Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas clearly had no problem doing that recently.
As you can see from the photo above that Peter Burns shared with us on Twitter, Thomas went with the standard referee outfit and sunglasses but also threw a sign right on his chest to make sure the joke landed. A blind referee is a popular costume every year, but a replacement ref is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We couldn’t find the photo on Thomas’ Twitter page, so it seems possible that he deleted it.
While it was a bold move from Thomas, we’ll still have to rank his costume behind these fantastic Bobby Petrino outfits and Alex Morgan’s McKayla Maroney costume.

Due to Hurricane Sandy, the NFL announced on Monday that the Week 8 trading deadline will be moved from it’s originally scheduled Tuesday time frame to 4 p.m. ET on Thursday, Nov. 1.
