    Re: League Looking to Hire Replacement Refs



    sounds like the NFL has locked them out now so they can start training their replacements. Not sure how much leverage the NFLRA have in this.... bring on the SEC and Big 12 officials I guess

    Yea, it doesn't matter the location of the pitch, but rather who threw it.

    Careful what you wish for here, because yes, they very well could be worse then what we're use to seeing.

    If they were better or on the same level they would already be NFL officials.

    Not gonna shock me in the least to see several if not many bad calls or missed calls that contribute to the outcome of games if they go this route.

    Hopefully the impact is minimal on our games.

    I remember the scab refs and they were dreadful.

    Yes, be careful what you wish for.

    There are some interesting numbers in this article
    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/footb...ike/55404170/1

    Basically salaries can go from $78,000 for Rookie officials to $200,000 for veterans by 2018.
    Sounds like a helluva good full-time salary to me, although there is no mention about a move to fulltime employment in the article.. I'd be happy to attend training and watch film of every player in the league every day of the frickin year for that money lol. I saw in another article that MLB refs make an average of 120K, and that's a boatload more games.

    The NFL is messing with the officials pension plan however, and that's a major sticking point.

    If you break the rules you can't make the rules.
