I’m watching Dallas play the Redskins, and I’m beginning to wonder if the NFL referees have started taking stupid pills. Maybe there was a sale during the off-season. At least Ed Hochuli admitted his mistake (although I’m sure the Charger fans aren’t remarkably satisfied). Then, during Miami’s blow out of New England, the referee blew the whistle early to negate a touch-down run by Cassel (premature blowing seems to be a symptom of the referee’s problems). During today’s Jets victory over Arizona, the referee called a 15 yd facemask (no other kind these days) when the defense mearly held the jersey. And during a Cowboy’s run-back, a blatant face mask was ignored. Blind, stupid, malevolent or compulsive gamblers. I don’t know and I don’t care. In their defense, football is a fast game (especially if your eyes are shut and you’re dumber than a bag of rocks). I have a suggestion. Fire all these morons and hire the CFL referees. They’d appreciate the pay increase and do a much better job. NFL referees: You Suck, You Dumb Bastards.
Maybe the NFL should hire these guys.
