Lingerie Football League Confirms That Former Officials Are Calling NFL Games
bleacher report dot com ^ | 9-25-12

Ladies and gentlemen, several of the NFL's replacement officiating crews allegedly weren't even good enough for the Lingerie Football League.

Yes, you read that correctly. The Lingerie Football League!

The LFL and commissioner Mitchell Mortaza released a press release early on Tuesday morning, which was picked up on by Jack Dickey of Deadspin. The statement reads as follows:

"Because of the LFL's perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.

We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight's event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games."

You can also see the press release at the official LFL Facebook page.

This is unbelievable. Put simply, this latest news is just another indication of how overmatched and unqualified this current crop of replacement referees is to handle NFL games.

It was bad enough when we thought we were dealing with NCAA Division II and III replacement referees. But now we're talking about several refs who weren't even good enough for a league played in skivvies?

It should come as no surprise that the league is fully supporting the decision made by the replacement referees (minus the lack of the pass interference call) after Monday night's debacle that cost the Green Bay Packers a win. The game's integrity is no longer the first consideration.

Roger Goodell and the owners maintaining an ironclad grip of control over the NFL and not conceding to the real referees are all that matter. That much has become clear.

I guess I'll have to start watching the LFL instead. At least it knows when certain officials don't do its brand justice

Maybe the players should don bras and garter belts so these ancient fossils would feel more at home.

The assumption being that the refs were doing just as bad a job before, but no one was paying attention to the actual game?

I’d have a very HARD time officiating a lingerie football game.

If they let a guy quarterback, my guess is that he would never go shotgun or wildcat formation.

So, what network carries their games?

Hang on, if we're going to have replacement refs, why not ones in lingerie?

This is an outrage. But we may need more ‘evidence’ so I can determine how angry I should be...

I'm sure that somewhere a 10-year-old boy is giggling at your comment.

No wonder the ref called a punishment when he shoulda called a penalty.

“I’m sure that somewhere a 10-year-old boy is giggling at your comment.”

Well,,,, You’re obviously pretty clueless about what the Lingerie League is about! It’s to appeal to men. I’ve never watched one of their games, and, as I live in the Cleveland area, and,,,,, well,,,,, the Browns. I don’t watch football. It’s too depressing! But,,, lighten up!

Maybe I will actually watch a football game for the first time since the mid 80s.

I’ve watched parts of several of their games, and I can honestly say that I don’t actually remember seeing any refs in them.

Were they incompetent? Or, just constantly distracted.
