Will Ralston’s Lingerie Football League Have Better Officials than the NFL?
September 26, 2012 4 Comments
I wasn’t going to address the mess in the game on Monday since nearly everybody else has but, this is just too ridiculous for words, the NFL would be well advised to get this settled before somebody gets badly hurt, they’ve already hurt the credibility of the league badly. From The Objective Conservative.
We couldn’t pass up a relevant article from the Daily Caller given the controversy over the Packers Seahawk game the other night. Apparently some of the replacement officials in the NFL aren’t competent enough to officiate in the Lingerie League…..
Refs fired from Lingerie Football League still officiating NFL games
by Sarah Hofmann
“If you think getting fired as a referee for the Lingerie Football League means you’ve lost the best job imaginable, have no fear — you can always get a job officiating NFLgames.
The LFL had been keeping silent about the replacement referees in the NFL until early Tuesday morning.
In August, Deadspin reached out to the league for comment about a rumor that some of the refs had been fired. After the controversial Packers versus Seahawks outcome Monday night, the league responded and took the opportunity to jab the NFL as well:
“Because of the LFL’s perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations……….”
