The NFL's use of replacement referees threatens the integrity of the game and could lead to serious player injuries. We need the most competent, highly trained officials on the field immediately. With the NFL making more than $9 billion a year in revenue, it seems like it's within their ability to come to an agreement with referees over a pension plan, which has been the biggest issue resulting in referees being locked out of a contract.
UPDATE: There were numerous blown calls in Week 1. The NFL needs to end this farce before a game is unfairly decided or a player is injured.
UPDATE 2: Well, the worst has come to pass. The NFL's use of replacement referees has cost a team the game. Sorry, Packers fans. The NFL clearly cares more about $ than about providing an honest game.
If the NFL gets away with this one, they can get away with anything. How long before a player is seriously hurt because of incompetent officiating?
