I wonder how loud the uproar would be if this same crew from Monday was sent to the next Green Bay game 

I'm not sure of that.  There's talk that ratings will actually increase with all of this, due to folks that don't always watch, doing so just to see how bad it really gets.

On a bright note, talks are going well.  PFT just reported that the NFL and the Refs have agreed to terms for replacement refs/training going forward.  The only other sticking point now is the issue with a pension vs. 401K plan.  Mostly, for retired officials.
