“Pin-Up” of the Week: NFL Referees Speak No Evil, See No Evil, Hear No Evil Pin


Maybe you didn’t hear about it, but Russell Wilson became the first quarterback to throw a game winning interception when the replacement referees made one of the worst calls in NFL history.  Even after reviewing the play they still called it a touchdown.  Referees aren’t perfect, but there is no excuse for this type of call.  For the past three weeks replacement referees have been making one bad call after another.  The one made on Monday night was the straw that broke the camel’s back.  The NFL conveniently reached an agreement with the regular referees after they realized the replacements were useless.

Some people think that the NFL’s ratings would have taken a beating for the rest of the season if an agreement wouldn’t have been met.  I disagree.  I believe more people would have watched to see the screw-ups.  If there is anything people like to do in America, its get together and point out other people’s mistakes.
