    were part of the Lingerie League. And, get this, they were so bad they couldn't make the cut there.

    But while I don't like these guys filling in I reserve my real anger for the owners who are such assholes they still want to keep the real refs off the field. Scabs and the scabpickers who choose them. Which is worse?

    If we got Mitt to be slightly less dishonest and gave him some personality he could pass as a used car salesman.

      The Lingerie Football League issued a statement (via Deadspin):

         Because of the LFL's perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.

          We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight's event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games.

      ...they presumably will find it easier to keep their eyes on the ball.

      On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.
