I got to see very little of the preseason, so I don't have an opinion one way or the other. But some pundits are saying that the replacement refs are likely to mess up badly. Anybody worried about that possibility?
Furthermore, if there are some screw-ups that significantly impact the game, who do you think will be hurt the most, us or the Cowboys? My uninformed guess is that, since they're newbies, it's slightly more likely that they'll tend to be homers, and that we might come out with a net gain on blown calls. Not that that would be desirable -- we'd never hear the end of it from all the whiners around the league.
Another thought: if the game is played in monsoon conditions, that's just one more impediment to a well-officiated game. Keeping track of the clock, accurate spotting, trying to keep the ball dry, etc., while trying to keep their footing and see through the downpour might make it very difficult for them to make tough calls. I predict that there will be a lot of challenges.
