Yours truly, speaking earlier this month on the effect of the replacement refs on the NFL:
I don't believe the integrity of the game has been or will further be compromised due to the scab refs.
Given the ending of last night's Packers-Seahawks game, I've eaten my helping of crow.
Though the league upheld the call, this is their worst nightmare incarnate. The PR shitstorm over the whole thing really casts them in a bad light. Worse, the quality of their product is suffering and pissing off a lot of people.
