The NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell were all about punishing New Orleans Saints players for Head Hunting for money. All in the name of something called player safety. Yet here we are today today going into week four with no real referees on the field for the games!
And the players are getting hurt more than ever with costly mistakes made in almost every game. Like the Green Bay Packers bogus loss last night.
These are not even top notch college refs, they’re Division 2.
Like former 49ers QB Steve Young said last week, this isn’t about the NFL caring -it’s about money, nothing more.
The owners won’t give these guys a raise. But why not? Everyone else is getting rich in the NFL. Players are making double or triple what they made just 10 years ago, so why not raise up the ref’s salary and benefits? They make between $70,000 and $150,000 a year which is not bad, but with the world’s number one entertainment industry, they have good reason to gripe.
No time on the clock, the Seahawk‘s quarterback let’s loose a Hail Mary into the end zone and it’s clearly intercepted by a Packer’s player. However a Seahawk player has his hand on it, kinda as the Packer goes to the ground with clear possession.
So it’s an interception, end of game, Packers win.
Then the new refs say a tie goes to the receiver and SEATTLE WINS.
What, morons. Hey, they did this in the Chiefs game. The Saints had a clear touchdown called back when the replay showed the guy caught it off the ground and wrapped up the football and ran it in, for a touchdown. It was called back and likely cost the Saints the game.
Players have little respect for these scabs and many players are getting hurt needlessly. It has to end.
The owners are greedy jerks for not solving this NOW.
It’s hurting players, the game and the integrity of the NFL.
And what’s it all about – a couple million bucks? Take it out of the Chiefs parking revenues for God’s sake.
