After last night’s debackle on Monday Night Football, where the Seattle Seahawks beat, and I’m using that term very loosely, the Green Bay Packers, it looks like the replacement referees have finally been fired.
From the Lingerie Football League.
You’ve read that correctly. A football league that is only known because of the attire that its pretty attractive and girly players wear has the guts to do what many NFL fans, players, coaches, and media members are waiting for the NFL to do.
The LFL emailed the following statement to many media outlets announcing their decision to fire the referees they employ who were serving as replacement referees in the NFL:
“Because of the LFL’s perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer,” commissioner Mitchell Mortaza said in a statement. “Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.”
“We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight’s event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games.”
Now that the football league that’s more known for their players’ attire, or lack thereof, has fired the replacement refs, will the NFL follow their lead?
We can only hope that is the case but based on these reports, we wouldn’t hold our breath.
