As I sit and watch the Denver/Atlanta game I can’t help but to think what has happened to the NFL. I know the replacement ref’s are calling to the best of their ability, but c’mon man! They are missing a lot of very blatant calls on both defense, not to mention how inconsistent they are on the spot of the ball. As if the blown calls weren’t enough, I feel as if these replacement referee’s are being influenced by the coaches and the players.
Now, I know this won’t hurt the NFL’s bottom line because in the end fans will still go to watch their teams. I do think however, that this terrible for the game itself. I am not fully aware of what the disagreement is between the NFL and the ref’s is, but one can only think it comes down to money. How far will this go…until a team is knocked out of playoff contention by bad calls or worse a player is injured due to a blown call. From a fan’s point of view I think they just need to meet halfway so I can enjoy the game I love to watch!
