"TALK OF THE WEEK": Worst Call In NFL History!


The most talked about story this week!

Monday night the NFL made history once again. but this time it was for the worst call ever...

GET THE SCOOP! 

Listen to the "Talk of the Week"below:

 
The original NFL Refs were on a lock out/ strike and when a replacement ref made a call in the Seattle Seahawks / Green Bay Packers game on "Monday Night Football" ... sports fans everywhere went bazerk!

 Watch what happened...



Even President Obama chimed in hoping to get these replacement refs gone ASAP,
"NFL fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs’ lockout is settled soon"
Reports say the replacement NFL Refs weren't even qualified to be referees and were fired from the Lingerie League. But still... what seems like the whole world against him, Lance Easley -- the NFL replacement ref who made the TD call in Monday night's game -- stands by his decision, adamantly saying,
"It was the correct call."
That call rushed the NFL to finally make a new agreement with the real refs.

NFL officials ended their labor dispute with the league by approving a new eight-year contract with a 112-5 vote on Saturday, then hustled off to the airport to get to work. In the new contract, refs' salaries will increase from an average of $149,000 a year in 2011 to $173,000 in 2013, rising to $205,000 by 2019.

The current defined benefit pension plan will remain in place for current officials through the 2016 season or until the official earns 20 years' service. The defined benefit plan then will be frozen.

Retirement benefits will be provided for new hires, and for all officials beginning in 2017, through a defined contribution. Beginning with the 2013 season, the NFL will have the option to hire a number of officials to work year-round. The NFL also can retain additional officials for training and development and assign those officials to work games. The number of additional officials will be determined by the league.

The officials that worked Thursday's Ravens-Browns game were cheered from the moment they walked onto the field, with everyone overly glad to have them back!
