Nor should there be any respect shown to them as referees. They have about as much business throwing (or not throwing one) a flag on an NFL field as you or I do. For all the "Integrity of the Game" shit the NFL spews, they sure don't seem to care about it very much. They're a multi-billion dollar business, give these guys the money they want, which is a drop in the bucket, and be done with it. If they don't, a player is going to get hurt, and hurt really bad. The fact the NFL is even using replacement refs is a disgrace.
