Another World Heard From….The Lingerie Football League Claims The NFL Is Using Refs They Fired For Incompetence
Seattlepi - Because of what it called “tonight’s event,” the Lingerie Football League on Monday night — after the controversial Seahawks-Packers game — released a statement saying that it fired several officiating crews that are now working as replacement refs in the NFL. Those crews, LFL Commissioner Mitchell Mortaza said in the statement, were fired “due to … on-field incompetent officiating.” Here is the entirety of Mortaza’s statement, which was posted to the LFL’s official Facebook page (and linked to by the LFL’s official Twitter account) late Monday:
Because of the LFL’s perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations. We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight’s event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games.
It’s all fun and games until the LFL gets involved. Like when the Lingerie Football League comes out and says the officials working the NFL games were fired for incompetence from their league you know the shit has really hit the fan. Now obviously this is complete bullshit, but I’m just going to pretend it’s true anyways because it makes it that much better. I can just picture Goodell pounding his fist on a big wooden oak desk when he read this story and shouting out loud to nobody in particular. DAMN YOU LINGERIE FOOTBALL LEAGUE! DAMN YOU!
