farking whiny-assed farking refs. They don't get paid the same as those in other sports bcause they only work once a week. It's a part time side job. Most of them are already bankers, lawyers or businessmen. Jesus, they're side job salary gets doubled and they still biatch. And even when they are on the job they still fark things up. I say let them sit the whole year. The college refs will probably do better anyhow.

Uppity zebras have sucked for years, hence overwhelming support for replay. Latest example: That blown call in the Mexico Bowl last night. A blind chimp could see that that guy hung onto the ball in the end zone. If zebras think they're such hot snot, they should try proving it, then asking for a big raise. Last week that a-hole leader of theirs sent a threatening e-mail to 1200 prospective replacements, warning them that "you'll never work in this town!!" if they accept. Got news for him: more than 20% of current officials had already agreed to be replacements during the last dispute before it was settled in the 11th hour. Bring on the replacements! Besides, anything that pisses off the AFL-CIO and their mafia thug buddies is A-OK in my book!

I'd like to see the ref's gather up and form a team and then play a team like maybe the titans???

well all I know is that if I don't know the ref's names...they're doing their job. And I know Phil Luckett's name.

Your all going to die

Yeah lets give Phil Lucket a big fat raise so he can fark up coin tosses and blow touchdown calls that cost teams play off berths.

These guys are idiots. Two weeks ago the NFL offered them a 40% pay increase and they turned it down... EXCUSE ME? Your kidding right? I'd sleep in a dumpster for a night to get a 40% pay increase, and these morons turned it down.

They want to be payed the same amount of money as NBA & NHL officials who work full time and only officiate over 100 games a year. The NFL refs work part time and only 16-17 games a year. Why don't they see the logic here?

Those farkin icehole refs,
The e-mail, first disclosed by The Washington Post, went on to say: "What may sound like a fun diversion, a fun couple of games for you, is my career." Hochuli, a Phoenix-based lawyer, added: "Working as a scab will actually hurt and likely kill any chances you would have of ever getting into the NFL."
HIS CAREER??? What's the matter Ed, running out of people to sue???
Sorry that you only got offered a 40% salary increase, you jackoff...........
