Breaking news in the Saints vs. Panthers NFL game… the NFL has decided to bench replacement ref, Brian Stropolo. Stropolo’s Facebook page showed strong favoritism towards the New Orleans Saints.
“We took the safe and appropriate measures,” NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson told NFL Network on Sunday morning.
So now we have both a replacement coach and a replacement replacement ref in this game… sounds about right. I had actually never thought about that before… policing what games certain refs get to officiate based on fanhood. In other news, I’d like to volunteer my officiating services for the Jets vs. Steelers game today.
