    I agree, I was just pointing out that these refs are not all millionaires, doctors and lawyers.

    Everyone should be held accountable.
    It's relevant to the idea of taking money out of their paychecks because they missed a call.

    Imagine that......

    The NFL needs to do a much better job of establishing consistency in their officiating crews.

    Too many of these officials get away with letting their personal feelings influence the outcome of games and it really tarnishes the integrity of the NFL - in my opinion. Hopefully Roger Goodell is actually paying attention.
    agreed. That smirk on Tomlin's face told a story! I hope that the NFL fines the guy.

    Tommy Hill, he is a back judge on Ron Winter's crew. I know him personally and have played golf with him a dozen times over the last few years. He was a golf coach at a high school near where I live. He is more of the norm than guys who are millionaires and making 200k a year in another career. We talked about this when they were on strike negotiating their new deal. So again, all of these guys are not making hundreds of thousands of dollars in their other careers.

    That's called incentive to do your job properly.

    If a cashier's (who makes a hell of alot less then these officials) cash drawer comes up short, even if it's an honest mistake, what happens?

    At worst they are fired and totally lose their source of income and could possibly be arrested on top of that depending on how much money they are short. If they are lucky, they will just have to make up the shortage out of their pocket.

    Your logic & your sympathy for the officials is absolutely ridiculous.

    Was a Golf coach but he's retired now correct?? That is what I mean the vast majority of Refs have income from retirement or other jobs that they still make money from.. I didn't mean they are ALL millionaires.. Lets put it this way if they weren't refs they wouldn't be homeless now would they??

    John's point still stands. The NFL is a multi-billion dollar business, nothing less. You're coming off extremely naive.

    Well then CBS and I have been wrong and most Ref's are avg Joe's just struggling to get by.. Question for you though how come all the ref's seem to be older how come you don't see any Refs in their late 20's or 30's ??

    Thats because it isnt easy to become a ref in the NFL. You have to work your way up from high school to college to the pro's. Even with in college you have to go through D3 to D2 to D1 and by the time that happens these guys are in their late 30s.

    Some other quotes from around the Net of the avg joe's...

    What is the average salary for an NFL ref?
    1 year ago

    ANSWERS


    4 years ago

    The average salary of an NFL ref is $25,000-$70,000 per year. NFL ref's all have other jobs, though...many are lawyers.

    - See more at: http://www.chacha.com/question/what-....GIDJxWlB.dpuf

    The NFL referees only work on Sundays. It is obviously mandatory that some of them work somewhere else on other days of the week. The salary range for an NFL referee will vary between $25,000 to $70,000. NFL referees also work as entrepreneurs, inventors, dentists and farmers. http://www.therichest.com/sports/nfl-referee/

    LOL...did you just reference ChaCha.com as a source...LOL.

    Again, I dont know what argument you are trying to make. Your original statement that NONE of the refs are average Joe's is just wrong. You acted like a smart a$$ and asked for proof for an example and I gave you some. Not from some irrelevant web site but from an ACTUAL NFL Ref who I know personally. Its OK, sometimes you can admit you were wrong and next time dont act like an a$$ when someone tries to correct you.

    Just because tinfoil hat types want to ascribe to conspiracy what is actually just the average human's capacity for error doesn't make me naive. Thinking that docking some guy for missing a holding play is either fair or the solution is retarded.

    The only thing that will fix ref errors, or at least significantly diminish them, is more technology like ****ing lasers and **** for determining ball placement and 22 booth officials monitoring each monitoring a player for penalties, possession and field position. Which would be a ****ty game to watch. But it'd be better than $50 fine every time a ref who is trying to watch several things at once misses a call or makes the wrong call since they don't have the benefit of omniscience like every fan of the NFL.

    What jobs are you people working, in 2013, where people are docking your pay that you advocate some sort of libertarian plutocratic dystopian nitemare.
