Art Imitating Life?

                                                      Just Some Gambling Advice

Did anyone feel like they were watching Leslie Neilsen as  Frank Drebin in a scene from The Naked Gun last night when the NFL referee walked onto the field at the end of the game to announce whether the infamous (and wrong) Touchdown call was going to be upheld in front of thousands of screaming Seattle fans? Did he have any other choice? He even had that sheepish look on his face that said, “I’m sorry that we’re getting it wrong but you hometown fans are really going to love me for this!”

If the NFL Bigwigs decide to keep these amateur officials on the field in the weeks ahead I think we should all start betting heavily on the home teams!

    This is a tough one. No one wants anyone in any job who doesn’t know their stuff. However, should we just bow down to the Refs’ demands. Sure they make a lot less than MLB refs, but since when does the NFL have 150+ games a season?

      My problem is that the Refs still have a contract. If you want to fire someone who is doing their job and doing it well and who still wants to work then at least have the decency to wait until their contract expires. Plus why be stingy when you are a Billionaire??? That’s something I still don’t get.
