    In your opinion, how many other sports do you officiate?

    Of course it's my opinion. Do you need to be an official to comment on how a game is officiated? I wasn't aware of that rule. Do you need to be a film critic to say whether you thought a movie was bad or not?

    I said shouldn't complain much....... I never said not complain at all. If that makes me a hypocrite in your eyes, so be it. ;)

    But again, you are looking at one small comment I made among many regarding the poor officiating. If it was only a matter of them occasionally taking a long time to get a call right, I wouldn't have complained. But that wasn't all there was to it. They have repeatedly missed calls, and made incorrect calls. They have failed to protect the QBs, and have generally looked like deers in the headlights on the field.

    I didn't anticipate the replacement refs would be as bad as they have proven to be. So, I may be "guilty" of underestimating the impact they would have..... and that has only been in the preseason. I also figured that the NFL would reach a deal with the real refs before the season started, so I wasn't overly concerned. Sadly, I had too much faith in the NFL doing what was in the best interest of the game.
