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.

If it weren't for unions, we wouldn't have weekends. If we didn't have weekends, we wouldn't be able to watch football on Sunday. Ergo, if there were no unions there would be no football.

I've seen piss poor officiating in just about every game I've watched this year, so I don't really see the big deal about this guy reffing the Supr Bowls.

Now if we were playing in it, I'd be worried. But these teams that are left? Fug'em.
