The regular refs used pre season games as practice too. They won't be in Regular Season form for a few weeks.

Even in pre season form I'm sure the refs could officiate in the lingerie football league.

Huchuli has been training them on conference calls and giving them pop quizzes. No farking joke, like all of the union refs. They'll be better than this rabble at the least

And starting tomorrow the "these refs are nearly as farking bad" chants will begin.

This should be fun. I can't wait to see how many cockups happen in week 4. Hopefully that will validate my claim that the scabs aren't that different from the traditional jackasses.

I've actually enjoyed the last few weeks. The replacements have generally let the defensive backs go out and do their job for a change. And there really haven't been that many mistakes, but they've been entertaining mistakes. Yes, I do enjoy watching slow speed train wrecks, why do you ask?

At least they won't give a team five timeouts

So...a one week honeymoon period for the original refs, then in week 5, "THESE FARKING REFS SUCK THE POTATO SCABS COULD HAVE DONE A JOB THIS SHIATTY FOR LESS MONEY111!!!!!!1!!!!"

I do wonder how many refs were counting on a deal for their livelihood. I mean, how many of them have adequate "day jobs"?
Hochuli would've been fine regardless; he's a partner in a huge law firm, but how many others have similar 'fallbacks'?

The nightmare is only just beginning, subby. When the regular refs start blowing big calls, which of course they have NEVER done before, you'll realize that this illusion you've had for the last few weeks of football being perfectly officiated and no mistakes are made by the pros, it was all because of the scabs, was exactly that, an illusion.

What will you do then? Who will you cry to? Will you blame Goodell for giving you exactly what you wanted?

The honeymoon will last until the coin toss 19 hours from now. Oh, sure, you'll have the articles of praise for a week or so and the announcers will fall all over each other to see who can fellate the refs harder, and ESPN will get another 72 hours of coverage out of it, but three weeks from now you'll have forgotten all about it and you'll probably be pissed off about how your favorite team got jobbed on a big play.

Oh, by the way, is the broad ref going away, too?

Did they keep her around to make sure Hochules gets his creatine sandwiches and muscle milk served to him on time?

I have no idea what you meant. There is nothing in the article about the refs practicing a lot during this lockout.

The scab refs are now available to replace the inept Mitt Romney on the GOP ticket.

You're fooling yourself. I was firmly in the "fark those Zebras... they're part-time... and how hard can it be anyway" camp. Was I wrong.

The replacements have crammed 2 or 3 seasons (at least!) worth of officiating nonsense into three farking weeks.

Bad calls happen... mistakes happen... but they didn't used to happen in EVERY game.

/Subby.

Hey, I watched the game, thought it wasn't a reception...then tonight some local channel 13 news had the other angle from the goalposts...it clearly shows tate having more of it than I thought he would. Haters gonna hate.

The day I once again need a second set of fingers to count the number of blatantly miscalled penalties in a single game,
The day I next see extra timeouts given to multiple teams on the same weekend,
The day I see another 27-yard personal foul...

That's the day I'll come find you, shake your hand, and tell you how very right you are.

Everyone expects a missed or blown call once in a while. At least these guys will know where to place the ball, what penalties result in what yardage mark-offs, where they should stand, how to run the clock, and all the rules of the pro game. They won't run around looking at each other hoping someone on the crew knows what the hell to do.

Did that angle also show it wasn't a blatantly obvious pass interference on Tate?
When Oregon beat OU on that terrible onside kick "recovered by Oregon" when it really wasn't I couldn't do anything but accept the win but I wasn't happy about how it happened nor did I try to make myself believe it wasn't the wrong call. Lie to yourself all you want. It would be far less annoying if Seattle people, fans, players etc...would just say...Yeah, it was a shat call, what do you want us to do about it? We're taking the W.
Just STOP trying to make people see what didn't happen, a simultaneous catch. If he did and you could only tell from that goalpost angle...how the hell do you think the referee who called it a touchdown could tell from where he was?

They all have primary jobs other than football. I saw one article (which I don't have a link for, sorry) that broke down several...I remember one is an inventor, there's a CEO or two, some other attorneys, schoolteachers, etc. I'm sure they could all make ends meet without the NFL, although there are probably more than a few who might have to adjust their lifestyles.
