Good lord those guys are terrible....however, in both cases I saw this week, the Patriots and the Packers lost because of their ineptitude.

So I suppose they can't be all bad.

I wanted the Seaturks to win win but geez, I'm sick of hearing 'they're doing the best they can'. This friggin' league expects cities to pony up millions towards ridiculously opulent examples of American excess(the stadiums),charges obscene gate fees, gaurds the words "Super Bowl" like its a procreateing state secret, but they can't pay the people they expect to actually run herd on these games which generate millions in advertising, gate fees, etc. I hope this is the last straw.

They also missed an obvious offensive pass interference call on that last play. I hope these scab refs are saving the league huge heaps of money.

Hey NFL! Foot Locker called. They want their employees back.

Seems to me a multi billion dollar industry could afford to put the best of everything out there on the field for the fan base that makes them a MULTI BILLION DOLLAR INDUSATRY!

Any Seahawks fan that's a true fan should be embarassed for that call! I will give in to the fact that the Packers should have never given them the oppurtunity to win, but that call is just embarassing to anyone who's a fan of football

This may finally be the one topic where all of .com can agree. The replacement refs suck. Anyone care to argue?

Isn't that a jump ball? Doesn't the tie go to the team with the arrow? Seattle ball. I get it!

The Broncos coaching staff has contributed $55,000 to the "send the footlocker employees packing" kitty. So we should be able to retain the services of Ed Hochuli in time for the Raiders this weekend.

Keanu Reeves turned down an offer to star in "The Replacements 2" when he realized it was going to be about brooding backup refs with corrective lenses instead of former quarterbacks with bad knees.

I don't understand why a Seahawks fan would be so embarrassed. They didn't make the call.

I'd be embarrassed by the Seahawk uniforms

Under this rule every time a cornerback tackles a receiver after a catch it should be ruled an interception.

Gov. Scott Walker is complaining. NOW he wants Union refs.
