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. 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.
Serious question: If this continues, and games are decided on the whim of moronic officials with phantom penalties, and records are tarnished, and legitimate contenders are knocked out of the post season to BS as obvious as we've seen lately, and this just goes on and on and on and on...
Will it matter who wins the Superbowl?
Even if it was the Steelers, could you take any pride in it?
I don't think I could.
I think if the NFL doesn't fix this immediately this season might be a wash.
I imagine after awhile even professional commentators will start to realize the season is completely illegitimate. I find it hard to believe people like Terry Bradshaw and Collinsworth and Long and Jimmy Johnson and Skip Bayless and you name it, will be able to carry the water for the NFL forever and talk about football with a smile on their face if this just continues to new levels of absurdity. We're only in week #3 and this is having a major impact on the season.
