It’s been a tough season so far for the replacement officials in the NFL. It seems to be obvious to almost every NFL player, coach and fan, who’s name isn’t Roger Goodell, that the replacement reps aren’t up to par with the currently locked out officials. We all know that the old officials made mistakes, but the amount of mistakes seemed miniscule compared to what we’ve been seeing these last three weeks. Goodell and the rest of the NFL brass need to give in to the locked out officials’ needs. The amount of money they’re fighting over is so miniscule compared to what the NFL makes, it’s about time for Goodell to just give in. A sacrifice needs to be made for the greater good. With each bad call the replacement officials make, the NFL is loosing more and more leverage. Although it’s painful, I can deal with some of the bad calls these refs are making but what I can’t deal with is some of the stupid decisions they’re making. The dumbest decision so far came in yesterday’s game between t

Retired NFL referee Jerry Markbreit says Roger Goodell doesn’t care about player safety

With each week that passing, the displeasure of replacement referees continues to grow. What was once just fans making snarky remarks on social media has not morphed into former players making bold statements about how the NFL is handling all of this. And now we can add retired NFL referees to the every growing list of groups willing to question the NFL’s use of replacement referees...

Replacement Ref Trips Up Cowboys Player with Hat

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Kevin Ogletree was tripped up in the end zone during today's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by an odd object. That object: a referee's hat. (GIF courtesy of Big Lead Sports) Yes, a replacement referee's hat thrown right into Ogletree's route slipped him up. Luckily for the Cowboys, Ogletree got right up and was unharmed, but...

Mucho Frio: Tony Romo

I drafted me for my fantasy team Juan… After lighting up the Giants in week one, Romo has looked abysmal in his last 2 outings.  Playing at home vs the Bucs D that Eli Manning turned into Swiss cheese last week, has me thinking Romo is ready to go for 300/3 and get back on track.  Not so much. In his last 2 games Romo has failed to throw for 300 yards, has only 1 TD, and has...

NFC West Beat: Seattle is Cheating, but Does Goodell Care?

There are a lot of things we could talk about in the NFC West this week. San Francisco lost to the Vikings and Arizona dominated the Philadelphia Eagles. In a regular week, these would be some of the top headlines.Week 3, however, was not a regular week. One play of the Seattle Seahawks game against the Green Bay Packers has stolen the spotlight from the other three teams in the...

Wisconsin Senator Jon Erpenbach tweets out Roger Goodell’s number

By now, we are all aware of the mayhem that is surrounding last night’s Packers-Seahawks game. The Seahawks won a game on a last-minute heave to the end zone, where pass interference should have been called on Golden Tate, and it was pretty clear that the Seahawks did not have possession of the ball in the end zone. Packers players, players league-wide, fans, and pretty much everyone...

Twitter Uproar Amid Controversy

A Wisconsin politician Tweets commissioner Roger Goodell's phone number, saying this season will be a "joke" if a deal isn't struck with the real referees. Meanwhile, the Packers aren't the only ones ripping the league and the replacement refs 140 characters at a time.

PACKLASH: People On Twitter Really, Really, Really Hate Roger Goodell

You’ve seen the video by now. I won’t pretend that there’s anyone out there who hasn’t. Green Bay Packers defensive back M.D. “20/20” Jennings clearly intercepted Russell Wilson’s hail mary pass as the clock expired in last night’s Monday Night Football game against the Seattle Seahawks. Even my brother, a diehard Seahawks fan, texted me as the world was going nuts...

And I’m not talking “gay” in how every year there’s that one dude in your fantasy league who’s gay for Tony Romo and drafts him way earlier than he deserves. We’re... [[ Read More ]]

Payton's absence shows a coach's value

When the bounty suspensions were handed down by Roger Goodell this summer and the New Orleans Saints found out they were going to be without head coach Sean Payton for the season -- and without assistant head coach (and obvious choice for interim coach) Joe Vitt for the first six games -- I promise you that more than a few of the Saints players thought, "No problem." That...

The NFL Should Over-rule Their Own Refs

The "Monday Night Mugging."  Like all notoriously controversial plays, this play needs a nickname.  So it won't be forgotten.  So it goes down as a black mark, as an asterisk, in the annals of NFL history. In fact, if the NFL has any integrity, they should retroactively change the result of the Packers-Seahawks game tonight.  The job of the NFL is to ensure the...
