Replacement Refs Are Just What the Sport Needs

25 Sep 2012 /
Replacement Refs

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.

    It’s somewhat okay to refer to a college sports team as “we” if you actually attended the college. But that post is obviously from the point of view of a player in that I don’t imagine that my mom is watching *me* from the stands.

    Obviously? Not so much. I attended many professional sporting events, although I did not play in those events, therefore “we” is somewhat okay in this instance also? You did not play football or basketball for USC, did you?

    It’s somewhat okay because as an alumnus, you have an official connection to the school … they send you alumni magazines, requests for donations, invitations to Homecoming, etc.
