    Naturally, the opinions of these clowns are inconsistent. That's the hallmark of the R party,  They know very little, they aren't able to work with what they know, and they aren't willing to find out what they don't know.

    There are differences in levels of competence.  Competence generally comes from good training, experience, good mentoring and a desire to grow and learn.  

    This is true for most any vocation or avocation.  Teachers, trial lawyers, arbitrators, parents, firemen, computer technicians, real estate salespersons, military officers, assembly workers, tool makers, designers, etc.  

    The NFL should be the highest level for players, coaches, managers, owners and referees.  The best only get that way through experience, good mentoring and a desire to grow and learn.  (echo)

    It's disappointing that the owners' greed inflicts the poor officiating on the fans.  Most of those I consider credible to comment on the situation agree, that the incompetent officiating is dangerous and will become more-so.  And the cause is simply the greed of the owners. Even the announcers in the MNF team had difficulty biting their collective tongues.

    John Madden agrees, and observes that as big and as widely watched as NFL games are, the owners aren't likely to let integrity enter in; they'll continue the lock-out.  And it is a lock-out, not a strike.

    Which brings up another inconsistency.  Why is it so morally unconscionable that players/workers can form a union and strike, but it's so American for owners to collectively lock-out workers?  Ans: It isn't.
