As soon as Nick Perry was flagged for flexing after sacking Rivers it became apparent those officials were in over their heads.

I agree from a safety standpoint it's mandatory to have them back on the field ASAP.

It'll be a long season if they don't get the regular officials back. The Bills had a ball downed at around the four yard line and the officials called a touchback. There was 10 feet or so between the ball and the end zone, and a ref standing right there to see it. I don't see how in the hell anyone gets that call wrong.

edit: Found video (http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/0ap2000000048211/Referee-gaffe-in-Buffalo?module=HP11_content_stream) of it.

Damn Ox that is pretty bad, I missed that one last night. Here's to hoping they get this sorted out soon.

A female ref, that's news to me. Hopefully this is cleared up soon.

I didn't think the refs did to bad in the Chiefs game other than poorly communicating to the crowd the standard calls we are used to hearing. I don't really think they messed up a call other than a questionable Pass Int, in the chiefs favor that had little contact in the end zone. I wouldn't have called it but I didn't see it live.
