The Boys are Back in Town: Regular Refs Return to NFL


If you are a fan of football, then like me, you were probably frustrated with these… Replacement Refs… We all thought it would be okay. I mean they should know the rules like any other refs, right? Well if you look at the picture above, we were wrong. We were very wrong. We were so very wrong… The night is dark and full of terror, but the night is darkest just before the dawn, and the dawn is coming. Keep reading to hear about the return of the Regular Refs.

I don’t see a reason for a ref to throw his hat into the endzone and trip up one of the players, especially one of the players in my Fantasy Football Team. A bigger conspiracy theorist would even think that it was his own cousin who paid the refs to influence the flow of the game so the conspiracy theorist would lose in Pro Pick’em and Fantasy Football and the cousin would take the coveted trophy for himself… Well I, err… the conspiracy theorist, has an Ace in the hole.
