It seems to be what everyone is talking about, everyone is giving an opinion on the issue and after watching the replacement referees poorly handle the end of the Vikings and 49ers it is time to weigh in on this issue of replacement referees in the NFL.
We all know they are bad officials, we all know their bad calls are numerous, and we all know people are blaming them for failure. However, I don’t blame the replacement referees for anything. Because they are REPLACEMENTS. It is not their regular job, it is not what they do year in and year out and how can we expect them to be any better than they are? You can’t and I don’t, I just hope and pray their bad calls won’t hurt the Vikings so they lose because of it.
Here is who I’m blaming, the NFL. Why isn’t Roger Goodell getting this situation fixed? The NFL is the top professional sport and has the highest viewer rating and it’s not even close. The NFL makes billions of dollars and the NFL is embarrassing itself by letting this referee situation continue. I can’t even find any evidence that negotiations are even happening on a regular basis. The NFL needs to get this referee situation figured out fast.
Don’t blame the replacement referees, blame the NFL.
