Replacement Refs Signs and Stickers

Updated on November 15, 2014

Three Weeks of Replacement Referees

Sept. 2012, the NFL referee lockout has changed the outcome of football games since the start of this season. While in negotiations for a better salary and benefits, replacement referees were out on the field making bad calls. Players and coaches have million dollar deals, so why was it so hard to pass a little in the direction of the referee?

It is a sad day in history when one very bad call can change what should have been a win for one team end up going to the other. Below are some signs and stickers that reflect how the fans, players and coaches have felt during this ordeal.

This book won't include the replacement refs of 2012, though still a great book to read.

Have we learned our lesson with hiring unqualified referees for sports?
