You are trying to ruin the NFL for a second time in 2 years, this time for less than $2 million in a business worth 45,000% more than that (do the math).

This time you have sacrificed the safety of your employees and the integrity of the game you say you love only to satisfy your unfathomable greed and to feed your mammoth egos. Not to mention you have basically given the finger to each and every fan (i.e. your customers) that lives and dies to watch this game.

And yes, I know you're not done. You all are too old, rich, and out of touch to do otherwise. I also know that you feel like we're going to take it forever, just like the rapidly shrinking middle class of this great nation seems hell bent on doing, but we won't. Soon we will storm your stadiums that we paid for with public money, lock you in your luxury boxes paid for with public money, and pump in farts, reggaeton, and that dreaded hippity hop music until your cold, ancient, worthless hearts give out.

And don't think we don't know Ol' Roger isn't your toadie waiting for his masters' next command.

As a fan of the NFL I'd just like to say fug you. fug you with all my heart.

And this goes to old Mumble Mouth Jerry "Do I need to help you read a revenue chart, son" Richardson just as much as anyone.

"Do I need to help you read a revenue chart son? Do I need to help break that down for you because I don’t know if you know how to read that?"

$2 or $2 million, the owners don't give a fug.

I know the commish takes a ton of heat for his job (and most of it rightfully placed), but the media pinning this replacement ref issue on him isn't really fair.

This is totally on the shoulders of the NFL Owners and until the ratings drop, they could care less if a football game isn't properly officiated.

What if that was the Cowboys losing that game last night to Seattle instead of the publicly-owned Packers? As much as he is an ass, is he influential enough that he would have seen his team robbed by his own supposed greed, and start lobbying the other owners to get this handled?

Why not take the question one step further. If that game was Seattle @ Oakland or @ Philly and the Raiders / Iggles get robbed at home is everyone so comfortable with the outcome? Not only do you have an non-public team robbed but you probably have a far less forgiving immediate reaction in the stadium as well.

We can if / and / but ourselves to death but it shouldn't matter. That was an embarrassment and the general public isn't as stupid as the NFL seems to think we are. The novelty / comedic value of terrible officiating will wear off for the casual fan eventually (I hope).

Dear Refs,

I cannot for the life of me understand why you feel that you are entitled to a pension plan when you work part time for our company. Our ratings have not dropped, and I feel that you are costing yourselves more and more money everyday that you don't accept our offer.

Many of our full time employees do not receive a pension, and only a 401K and a match from us. The NFL may not be around forever, and if history proves to be cyclical we will not always be the top dog. You can reference boxing, baseball, Nascar, and the NFL for a little history lesson. We feel that if we sign bad contracts with you, the players, and the networks in the good times, they might bite us in the ass during the bad times that we all know will eventually come.

Many Towns, Cities, Counties, and States are being bankrupted everyday by ongoing legacy costs such as healthcare for life, pensions, and excessive retirement benefits that were promised when the times were great. We have no plan to bankrupt the NFL, however we do plan to move forward with or without you. We are a business, not a bureaucracy.

Thanks for your time,

The Owners

It's pretty simple.

Sign the contract that we have given you or stay "locked out".

The fact that you're calling Peter King a Goodell apologist is hilarious, considering he has routinely ripped Goodell, the owners, and the replacement refs, saying over and over how the integrity of the game is dead due to the replacement refs. Just check his Twitter feed.
