It's time to get rid of the incompetents who are screwing things up. Obama and his Administration must get fired in November.

The replacement refs missed some calls and changed the outcome of some football games so it is good they are gone. But Obama is the big problem.

People are complaining about the replacement refs but I recall many, many times the “real” refs made just as stupid mistakes.

The problem is there are too many rules to protect these millionaire players. I say just let them go at it and unless someone takes a swing at another player the refs should keep the yellow flag in their pocket! Their job should be chasing the ball and remembering where the ball belongs. I played a lot of football as a kid and had a great time - all without benefit of referees.

This is just like our government and what is wrong with it....over regulation. Can anyone guess how many “rules” our elected boneheads make up to justify their existence?

It’s all theater.

Bread and Circuses.

More people were watching the NFL for the same reason people watch NASCAR - to see the wrecks.

BTW - the “real” refs, make $156,000.00 per year, with a defined benefit plan and are protected from firing by their union if they screw up.

This is terrific news! So even if Obama wins a second term, not all is lost — we’ll at least have better officiating at the football games.

Too bad. The replacement FAA guys worked out okay. Should have given it more time.

Thanks, Replacement Refs, and have a nice life. Know that just like the replacement baseball players you are going to be “scablisted” and subjected to a lifetime of union thug harassment. For sure don’t bother to apply for any future NFL job openings (even though you are now technically more qualified than just about any other applicants)
