    The fact that the official was fined doesn't come as a shock to me. What does come as a shock is his pay scale.

    $8150 x 16 Games = $130400


    That Ladies and Gentleman is how a 6 Digit Ref acts at work.

    Lets work with that and say they make the same for playoffs (4) and the ProBowl (1) as a regular game (16):

    8150 x 21 games = $171,150

    Damn - and I thought the IT field in DC was paying well.

    I guess I will sign up to ref over at the Humble Pee Wee league next summer. I'll just start at the bottom and work my way up. $170,000 here I come.

    Thanks for taking the high road, geez.

    Also your link didn't have a video of it, that's what I was trying to ask, other than reading it....pictures are worth a thousand words and all that.

    It's a long, long process. You actually have to start doing Pop Warner/Pee-wee league and Middle School. After you've done that for a couple of years you can move up to high school. After you've called a set number of highschool games you get to move up to the college ranks and after so many college games you get to go to the pros if you're so inclined.
    The thing is until you make it to the pros it's essentially a low paying part time job.

    But I did see that Packer game. The Ref getting that guy in a choke-hold was CLASSIC!

    Back-up Singers: "Quirk!"

    Dread-head: "You're daaaaaamn...right. I hear that Jim Quirk is one bad mutha...

    Back-up Singers: "Shut your mouth!"

    Dread-Head: "I'm just talking about Referee Quirk!"
