Are Replacement Refs Risking Player Safety?

After the Green Bay Packers/Seattle Seahawks game on Monday night, we'd say that isn't a stretch!

If you ask Bret Lockett, the New England Patriots safety, he'll tell you he's worried about it too:

"These replacement refs need to go now! They are risking player safety and the integrity of the game we all love. It has just become one big joke. What are they going to call next, a high-sticking or foul ball?!"

While we're sure that some of the replacement refs are actually decent, we can't help but think that they wouldn't be just replacement refs if they had been good enough to become official refs through the NFLRA.

We hope no injuries come from this, but if Bret's to be believed… it might only be a matter of time.

Time to end this BS, NFL!
