Ok so heres the gist of it. The LFL yes the Lingerie Football League fired all of its refs because of poor calls and one of those refs now works for the NFL.
LFL Commission Mitch Mortazaer learned after the Green Bay debacle that one of the replacement refs on staff for the NFL, the 9 billion dollar industry known as the National Football League is now employing Craig Ochoa, a ref that was subsequently fired from the LGL for poor performance!!
“They were hurting our overall broadcast caliber,” Mortaza says. “And if it’s opening up our players for potential injury, those things raise red flags here. Is it hurting overall credibility? When either of those two things are compromised, it’s time to start thinking about parting ways.”
“The entire crew was released due to several poorly called games which included missed calls, poor judgment and poor presentation for broadcast,” Mortaza says.
Listen I’m all for people getting a second shot in life, but two things here the NFL needs to realize. 1. Like stated earlier, this is a 9 BILLION dollar industry and they are only 3 MILLION off on their disagreement. To put this into perspective $250, 000, 000 supposedly went to sportsbooks all over the world because of the blown call in the Green Bay game. 2. IF you are going to be this petty and jeopardize the credibility of such and industry lets dig a little deeper on the back ground checks before hiring the replacements.
Sad thing….how many of us are hoping to see more bad calls (not against our teams) this weekend cause it makes for good TV?!? OMG Goodell is a GENIUS!!!
