    I don't know how I feel about this.

    The rules are the same, regardless who is officiating the game. The only kicker is what is going to be seen by the inexperienced refs and if they are going to be as technical.

    Part of me hopes they'll make less calls and let the game be played the way it should be. It's football. It's a tough sport. Period.

    Thanks for the article, Wolf. Some additional takes on this subject.

    Will replacement NFL officials make a difference in the game?

    if i remember correctly the question "how much worse could they be?" was asked when talking about replacement officials in the NBA a couple years ago. the answer was "a WHOLE LOT worse". as much as we complain about the refs already, i'd hate to see youth and inexperience deciding outcomes of a 16 game season. moving up a grade in officiating isnt as easy as it sounds, especially at that level.

    They can put me out there, and I'll work for FREE! Just the opportunity to gawk at a few TiGHT ENDS would be enough!!:):shetexan:

    Let me introduce you to the NFL substitute referee instructors

    who will be teaching the new batch of referees their "safety outlet" signal for "I DON'T KNOW!"

    again i'll reference basketball. if violet palmer is the example, female officials dont work at the highest levels.
