Typical attitude of those trying to lockout qualified non-union refs. Good luck
getting your governor to sign that bill.
As of right now the only qualified officials being locked out are the union
refs. They are not on strike, they are locked out. The replacement officials are
coming from non division 1 college and in some cases HS football. They are not
qualified for this job, they have never had to call a game remotely close to NFL
speed before. If the replacements were SEC refs I think you have a point however
that is not the case here. The only people in the league who are saying these
guys are qualified are the owners.
It would be preferable to let the teams decide the game's outcome rather
than random calls by rookie refs as in the Green Bay vs. Seattle.
So the NJ legislature would cancel the games.The regular refs are
not available - whatever the reasonreplacement refs are all
that's available, cannot play the game without refs under the
proposal, sono games in NJ.Does NJ really want to
eliminate the revenues those games produce?
Oh no! Life's temporarily imperfect for multi-gazillionaire athletes and
owners, and for fans who are entitled to games of error-free refereeing.
Clearly, our country - and possibly the entire planet - will be lucky to survive
this incomprehensible injustice. The government cannot save us quickly enough!
