Stop Blaming the Replacement Refs

It's not their fault. They're amateurs doing the best they can under trying circumstances. How many of us think we could do better, surrounded by giant humans wearing helmets and shoulder pads, yelling coaches,  tens of thousands of screaming spectators, TV commentators parsing our every decision, and millions of viewers?

Any blame for ruining professional football games should not be placed on the shoulders of the men in the striped shirts but on their employer, the NFL and its greedy owners, who would rather sacrifice the integrity of the game than pay a bit more for professional officials to do a professional job.
