    Coaches arent saying much about it nor are players because the league has instructed them to do so. Sports illustrated has an article,this past week about the officials lockout. Its not looking promising. In 2001 officials from ncaa power conferences were used. Officials used to large crowds. This lockout out they are using officials from high school, fcs officials-small college football schools, there are even officials from the lingerie league.

    Poor officiating may have more of an influence than we want to,admit

    Case in point the gift wrapped drive of the Seahawks where they mugged Tamba and then called him on two highly questionable penalties. In a close game that kind of BS can determine the outcome of the game.

    I dislike the most the "refs" inability to decide when to blow a play dead, you have half the guys motoring and the other half stopping. That crap is going to get someone hurt.

    In the preseason games I've watched the quality of the officiating has been quite poor with obvious calls continually being missed. We are going to have a tremendous amount of controversial plays if we begin the season with the replacement officials.

    Lets not forget that the very first blown replay call went against the Chiefs....in a Raiders game IIRC. Does everybody remember the Zebras turning "Pass incomplete" into "pass is complete"? Should have hung the deaf and blind Zebra from the goalposts.

    I know its horrible. Many bad calls and they even seem nervous when they're calling the penalties.

    Amani toomer said that players are figuring out what they are gonna be able to get away with. He said to expect more injuries.

    First the players and now the refs, what's next: the hotdog venders? How about the parking attendants or the cheer leaders...sheesh.

    I don't see an easy resolution to this unless the refs give in and take what they are getting offered. The bottomline is, as it always is, about money. The refs want more (along with more benefits) and the NFL doesn't want to give it.

    Why should they? The NFL has already shown that games will still be played and people will still buy tickets for games with sub Refs. While people will complain, they aren't going to stop watching the games. Until it affects the NFL's ability to make money, there is no reason for them to cave.

    The only way this could affect their bottom line is if the players threatened to strike in solidarity with the refs, or if they claimed that the new refs are risking their safety, and I don't see that happening during the season.

    ^ Which is too bad, the lowest guys out there on the field, dollars wise, deserve a little better package for pay and insurance, they have nearly as much chance as being ran over as any given player.

    NFL is a bunch of money hungry buggers, just like any company, which is why they're blind to do what is probably right, and only see the bottom line. Stupid thing to have to fight over IMO. Hate to see stupid calls, and blown calls, and that's all we're going to see this whole year, if we get the original ("the real") refs back, they'll be rusty, and calling the game differently.

    This stands to be a very strange year
