Should +NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell agree to the locked-out referees’
demands? Given the outcome of Monday night’s game between the Packers and
Seahawks, the competency of replacement officials has become a legitimate
concern for the league. Democracy Now! discusses this with sports columnist
Dave Zirin, who is harshly critical of Goodell, as well as Wisconsin Gov.
Scott Walker, whom he calls a “sociopath” for hypocritically supporting the
unionized referees, while not supporting unionized teachers, firefighters
and public workers in his state.
Untrained teachers, firefighters? Understandable. But untrained NFL refs?
No way. Get real:)
It isn’t a catch until the receiver touches the ground in bounds
(regardless of who has control of the ball in the air.) Upon reaching the
ground, both Jennings and Tate appeared to have equal control of the ball
from the refs’ perspective. To say the call was botched and imply that the
call would have been different if the Unionized refs had made it is
nonsense. The ruling of simultaneous catch was reviewed and upheld Sept.

Your words express my thoughts upon reading the title of this material, but
after watching it I’ve changed my mind. This shows that the problem of big
money corrupting the world as we know it is omnipresent. Maybe thanks to
such news more Football fans will learn about Democracy Now and from there
about the issues you listed.
What stopped the strike? I think it was threats from Vegas…they lost too
much money on the bad call touchdown for this game. So unions for refs. who
officiate on overpaid jerks who play with a ball good, yet people who fight
fires, teach your kids,police your neighborhoods, care for your water
supply etc.. bad. Maybe we should send some guys from Vegas to threaten
football is a waste of time and energy
True. Extremely satisfying, nonetheless, is the fact that two groups of
people, totally unaware of the collapsing economy (a.k.a. the Biggest
Bankster Heist in human history), namely intellectually handicapped
high-rollers playing, and the cheering, sleeping, dumbed-down hoi polloi
watching a game, that long ago has been captured for purely private profits
and is now reaping the fruits of corporate fascism. Some football circus I
can finally enjoy with a grim smirk over my foul GMO bread…
Professional sports teams are a racket. Billionaire owners and millionaire
players benefit from shakedowns of local taxpayers who pay to build
stadiums that charge what are unaffordable ticket prices for a large part
of the population.
Lets outsource them and their “entitled” gov. jbs to China.
5 dollar pizza and nascar are my examples of bread and circus. they lap it
up where i live.
This is a non issue and serves to further distract Americans from issues
like the NDAA, warrantless wiretapping, TSA groping people, quasi
militarization of police, spy center being built in Utah, and the growing
sense that Americans are guilty until proven innocent.
Exactly..yet the sheeple still file in to these stadiums, and buy the NFL
America foolsball, while their freedom is taking away, such irony.
Maybe the banksters should have taken their money!!!??
