I imagine this would do it.  If they're not back next week, they won't be back all season.  I was rooting for the replacement refs, but it didn't work out.


Not that outrageous. You keep them on the job and by week fifteen they'll be alot better. I'm playing "devil's advocate" of course but I could see that happening and that thought process.

Except they're getting worse.  I think there's a snowball effect now with the refs taking so much criticism and being so disrespected by everyone and getting so gun-shy that they're choking under the mounting pressure.  I think it was a really cool thing for them at first, and now I bet a lot of them just want to go home.  Football fans are nuts, to say nothing of the gamblers.  I wouldn't be surprised if there are some serious death threats soon.
