Current NFL Replacement Refs Were Fired from Lingerie Football League
Now if you have been watching football this past week there were some pretty bad calls. Everyone wants the replacement officials gone because people feel these referees can’t handle the NFL. Well apparently some of these officials could not handle it in the Lingerie Football League either.
The Lingerie Football League released a statement yesterday saying, “Because of the Lingerie Football Leagues 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 occurrences of incompetent officiating, we chose to part ways with a crew which apparently is 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.”
The league added, “We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However, in light of the finale of ‘Monday Night Football’, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth about who is officiating these games.”
This is insane that these referees could not make it in the Lingerie Football League. Earlier today the NFL and the REAL referees were close to making a deal. Hopefully we have the good referees back this weekend.
