Lingerie Football League Says A Couple Of NFL Replacement Refs Were Previously Fired A Few Months Ago For ‘Incompetence’.

After the Hall of Fame game in August, Mike Pereira let it slip that Craig Ochoa, the referee who worked that game, had been fired from the Lingerie Football League. The Lingerie Football League never responded to anyone’s request for comment on Pereira’s charge then. But now they have, and man this is just great. This statement was posted about 12:30AM ET on the LFL Facebook page by LFL Chairman and Commissioner Mitchell S. Mortaza. So here you go: “Because of the LFL’s perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations. We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight’s event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games.” If there was ever a reason for a public statement from a tenth-tier football league at 12:28 a.m. on a Tuesday, last nights debacle was it. And, yup, Roger Goodell, you just got served. By the commissioner of the Lingerie Football League.
