Default NFL Pulls Scab Ref Who Is Saints Fan From Saints Game

Unbelievable - you would think the league might ask the replacement refs if there are any issues about them being the ref in a particular game

One of the replacement officials assigned to the New Orleans-Carolina game Sunday is a Saints fan, according to his Facebook page. After being made aware of the situation this morning, the NFL made the decision to pull side judge Brian Stropolo from the officiating crew and replace him with the alternate who travels with the crew....

Stropolo, who is from New Orleans and lists himself on Facebook as an NFL side judge, posted pictures of himself in Saints gear tailgating at an Aug. 25 preseason game....

Stropolo's status update drew 73 "likes" and comments such as "Hey, now be nice with those yellow flags for our Saints!!" and "That's awesome you get to be an official for a Saints game! I didn't think they would let you since your (sic) from Louisiana."

When it comes to the Saints Goodell & Friends are on a roll
