Wtf does this have to do with unions?

Unions, as socialist organizations are prone to do, will always demand equal treatment of their members without regard to quality, production, or output.

You think it was the NFL's idea alone to place one of the worst refs in the league as the referee in the SuperBowl?

seeing as to how the NFL uses an in house evaluation system and places the highest scoring refs in the super bowl according to their own criteria, yes

Add in Garth DeFelice to pitch hissy fits and/or tackle players in the field of play and you've got yourself a Super Bowl to remember.

When you're done making a fool of yourself you should research how it works.

let's talk some more about how the same NFL that stood pat in the face of across the board disapproval earlier in the season to prove a point to the union is now so frightened of said union that it's supposedly being forced by it to place one of the "worst officials in the game" in their biggest event of the year.

Y'all keep on pretending the refs union doesn't have any say-so in the placement of officials.

Or input into the grading system.

Cotton candy clouds and lollipop trees are REAL!

back in the real world though, this is the same league that was about to cancel an entire season over a chump change dispute with the players union and sat by while NFL refereeing become a makeshift travesty that threatened the legitimacy of the game.

but you're saying that the league is so afraid of the referees' union that they're willing to be strong armed into putting their biggest game in jeopardy.

hell even if the NFL agreed to a system that's really like that, then that's their own damn problem. they're a juggernaut that commands billions in revenue so lol if you think the refs of all collective bargaining participants are going to be able to hold a gun to the league's back and make them sign a CBA that leaves the NFL at any kind of distinct disadvantage.

if the refs were being dicks about it to that extent and the NFL didn't want to play ball they would have just brought in some scabs and let the union sit and spin until they broke on the issue.

i haven't read anything about the selection process that lends credence to the idea that the union has any particular influence on the decision btw.
