It's another example of athletes getting too physical with referees.

The replacement referees of 2012 will be remembered the same way the replacement players of 1987 were remembered; guys (and gal) who were given the opportunity of a lifetime but were not qualified to fill enormous shoes.
Hey, wow, after months and months of getting nowhere with the NFL, looks like the league's referee will be back in uniform for all of this week's games!
Gee, wonder how that happened?
While the refs and the league dot "I's" and cross "T's", we want to take this moment to remember the gloriousness that was the NFL's replacement referees. Nobody put it better than Conan O'Brien T
If Deadspin and the Lingerie Football League aren't pulling anyone's leg, there may be calls for some NFL front office jobs. Deadspin alleges and the LFL confirms that a handful of the NFL's replacement referees were thrown out of the LFL...because they weren't good enough!
So have you had enough of these replacement refs in the NFL? Are you tired of them making mistake after mistake. After what happened last night between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks that cost the Packers the game..clearly something has to be done.
