Replacement Refs Are Just What the Sport Needs25 Sep 2012 / PE
I hope the NFL keeps replacement refs around forever. I hope they bring in a new batch of them every season. I hope they bring in replacement refs for the replacement refs.
Why do people think the “real” refs are actually good? Was last night’s Seattle-Green Bay game really worse than the “Tuck Rule”? Was it worse than 2006 when the “real” refs cost the Seahawks the Super Bowl?
Sports fans are the biggest cretins on the planet. When their team wins, they gloat, usually in the first person: We won! We beat those guys!
There are no bigger mental and emotional retards than people who refer to sports teams in the first person. It’s an inability to separate fantasy from reality. (Imagine a Roger Federer fan screaming, “I just won Wimbledon!”
When ther team loses, they blame it on one of two things: 1) Bad coaching; 2) Bad officiating.
Replacement refs play right into #2. It’s perfect. Every jackass fan now has a built-in excuse as to why his team lost.
The NFL will be more popular than ever.
