Another Lockout in the NFL

Just when we thought the phrase, “NFL Lockout” wouldn’t be spoken for at least another 10 years, here it is again.

Worst announcement by a replacement ref yet

During last night's New York Giants-New England Patriots Super Bowl pre-season rematch, this replacement referee made a call on a kick that that's hard to figure out.  Now that we know the fill-ins will be working the first week of the NFL season, it should be a lot of fun when things really get serious on the field.
