NFL’s Replacement Refs Fail and Hilarity Ensues

So y’all know I don’t watch football and don’t give 2 dambs about who wins what when. When I watch, the only things I end up commenting on is if their shoes are cute and coordinate well with their uniforms. I’m not the one to take to a sports bar.

But last night, the debacle that apparently happened during the Packers and Seahawks game made people so upset that they took to Facebook and Twitter to talk about it. They were talmbout how terrible the refs were since they’re replacement ones.

From what they said, the refs botched the last call so bad, it was the worst call in the history of the NFL. And folks roasted them into oblivion. And you know I like roast so I joined in.

Replacement Refs FAIL

Lemme find out I qualify to referee an NFL game. I have terrible vision and know nothing about football. PUT ME IN THE GAME, COACH!!! I can do this! I don’t know the rules or anything and my attention span is shot to hell. So you’re saying all I gotta do is go find a striped shirt and get to work? I’m READY!

Replacement Refs

But one of the funniest things about all this is that the Lingerie Football League made a statement on how some of the refs who are in the NFL now were actually FIRED from the LFL for being incompetent. *DEAD* These fools were let go from calling THOSE games and the NFL was all “COME ON, BUDDIES! WE GOT ROOM!” Fail. Epic fail. DeadSpin got that story.

There’s even a @replacementrefs Twitter account now and the bio is “Unofficially calling it how we see it. And if we missed it, we’ll guess. We don’t really know.” LMAO!!! Win.

This is a PR nightmare if I ever saw one. NFL is gon need to come out and defend this because people are butthurt about it. They might wanna go ahead and just pay their usual refs because if every game is gonna have this much hilarity ensue afterwards, I might have to start watching. And no one wants that.

But shourrout to everyone who’s gonna be dressed up as a replacement ref for Halloween. Costume gon be basketball shorts with a striped shirt and it will be awesome.

So now, the phrase “replacement refs” is synonymous with people who are incompetent at their job. They’re the low budget and low quality version of anything.

The Replacement Refs of Things

Waka Flocka is the replacement ref of music.

Whoever did Nicki Minaj’s ass is the replacement ref of plastic surgeon.

Britney Spears is the replacement ref of herself from 2002.

Blackberry is the replacement ref of smartphones.

Beets are the replacement refs of vegetables.

Rainbow is the replacement ref of clothing stores.

I could go on all day. But I won’t because I won’t get anything done and I’m not about that life. Besides, y’all can entertain me by leaving comments on your ideas of replacement refs of things. So I can cackle. All day. Like I did when I saw this one:
