TRENTON — Just hours after his beloved Green Bay Packers were victimized by a blown call, State Senate President Steve Sweeney announced that he wants to block replacement referees from working professional football games in New Jersey. In a statement issue this morning, Sweeney (D-Gloucester) said he plans to introduce legislation prohibiting the playing of professional sporting events with replacement officials, citing the potential for increased injury by inexperienced referees who cannot control a game. “This past weekend in the NFL has not only made a mockery of a great sport, but shined a very bright light on how important fully trained and professional officiating is to player safety,” Sweeney said in a statement. “We wouldn’t allow a factory or construction site to operate without fully trained supervisors on hand to ensure the safety of employees. Why should we do anything differently when the job site is a playing field?” “Whether the sport is football, soccer or baseball, when referees don’t know how to properly enforce the rules, there is a real chance for unnecessary and serious injury,” said Sweeney. “If the NFL insists on putting replacement officials on the field, putting players at risk, then the state shouldn’t be playing a part in that.”
Preach Steve Sweeney, Preach!
Actually I’ll be honest I love the Replacement Ref drama. Blog material for days and it keeps everything interesting. But the only thing more ridiculous than last nights blown call is a fake New Jersey politician trying to pass legislation banning them for being in the state. I love it. Its like the entire world has forgotten about everything else that once mattered. When was the last time you heard someone complain about concussions in the NFL anymore? Haven’t heard that in weeks because Replacement Refs have taken over the world. Everything that once mattered now takes a backseat to this frenzy. Nobody cares about the economy anymore. The Occupy Movement in Zuccotti Park is chanting for Ed Hochuli. Gays don’t even care they can’t get married anymore. They’re willing to go back to secretly fucking each other as long as Real Refs are back on the sidelines. I’m telling you right fucking now – if either Obama or Romney stepped in and solved the Replacement Refs issue they would absolutely automatically win the election. The world has gone crazy for Replacement Ref fever.
So, looks like the Jets and Giants are playing the next 13 on the road! New Jersey State Senate President Steve Sweeney won’t allow it! The 3rd State of the Union, the Garden State, will no longer tolerate the insanity.
