Are You Happy With the NFL’s Replacement Officials? — Sports Survey of the Day

We have finished up with week two of the NFL, and the return of the regular refs is still nowhere in sight. So are the replacement officials getting it done?Being a ‘replacement’ for anything is never easy, but being a replacement in the national spotlight in charge of adjudicating America’s most popular sport is a whole other story. The NFL seems to be losing this fight: the real refs won’t budge in contract talks, and people don’t seem too happy with the replacements.

The Houston Chronicle reports that many of the replacement officials are taking heat. One was even pulled from a week-two game for being a fan of the team he was officiating. Others just seem to be having general trouble with the rules and gameplay.

Not that the regular referees were perfect, but the replacement officials do seem to be having a hard time out there.
