2. Unionized broadcasters. Of course they're going to support the refferees union and bash the scab refs at every opportunity. I turned off last week's Monday Nighter at half because Mike Tirico's *****ing had become unbearable.
I haven't watched every game,
but has there been a single one yet that was decided on a blown call?
There almost always has been by this point. Half the games Ed Hochulie has ever reffed have been decided in such a manner. I could care less if the old refs ever come back. The new ones are a little slower at determining the calls, but they get just as many if not more correct.
Wrong again Bob
