  • Don't Blame The Replacements

    They're replacements...they're not supposed to be good. Just imagine if we didn't have Nicks, Bradshaw, or Diehl for a game and had to roll with Barden, AB2, and a new look O line, we would get blow out...oh wait, that happened and the opposite happened. I love my team. Can't wait 'till Sunday Night at 8:30...GMEN!!! ALL IN

    Time until the first calls for the Replacement Refs to come back ... 12 hours.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

      The replacement refs have been a scapegoat for teams playing poorly to blame their loss on someone else. They made some bad calls; but the regular refs make bad calls every week too. The media has had a field day because they have an easy story to write, and they don't have to do real work, like figuring out why Green Bay and New England suck so bad this year. Their O-lines are horrible in my opinion; but that's a differnt thread.

      Now that the real refs are back, it'll be interesting to see how much focus goes on the calls they blow.

          There are bad calls and then there's just not knowing the rules. The replacement refs fell into the latter category.

          No scapegoat. Green Bay won that game on Monday. They got robbed right in front of millions of people.

                Honestly.....I think the the call in the Packers/Hawks game was very close. I think it could have gone either way no matter who was officiating. People are just pissed because the refs weren't trying to give the game away to the discount double ****** like the real refs do.

                You watch....Packers go on a winning streak now.
                I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

                  Well let's not get ahead of ourselves just yet

                  Speaking of which, watch the Packers and Saints offense now EXPLODE ... both teams relied heavily on secondary penalties to keep drives alive last year.

                      They'll go on a winning streak because they'll be be facing a string of bad teams.

                      And like him or loathe him, I thought Rodgers handled this extremely well. Apologising to the fans was a very nice move.

                          I think some people are imagining the regular refs are better than they are. NFL refs suck! Though I must admit replacement NFL refs suck harder.
                          My 5 year old son right before the kickoff of the Super Bowl 46: Dad, are the Giants gonna win?

                          Burier: Yes.

                          My 5 year old son right before the kickoff of Super Bowl 46: Do you promise?

                          Burier: Yes. I promise.

                            I am with you. However the replacement refs had a valid excuse: Last minute replacements, not much training. What's the regular refs excuse? Favoritism? Incompetence?
