A couple of years back the NFL tried to put measures in place to address the officiating.
the efforts failed because of the fans and the sports media.
what happened, well the officials went on strike. The replacement refs came in, and rather than supporting the NFL and the replacement refs, all of the lemmings and media backed the referee union, so the NFL had to scrap plans to improve officiating.
and you know what, the replacements were way better, they just had the media up their ### every play trying to nitpick every call.
so let’s stop blaming the NFL for the sorry state of officiating.
