Replacement Referee Has Ties To Seahawks

An NFL replacement referee who worked the Sept. 9 game between the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals reportedly has ties to the Seahawks, according to Albert Breer of NFL.com:

In particular, former Pac-12 Conference official Jeff Sadorus, who worked last week's Seattle Seahawks-Arizona Cardinals game as a field judge, has officiated Seahawks regular-season practices for the past three years -- and therefore received paychecks from the team -- according to two sources affiliated with the locked-out referees.

Breer reports that the league would not comment and that the Seahawks said in a statement that Pete Carroll has always had officials come in to work practice. The NFL allows regular officials to work only training camp practices, which the league pays them for.

The Seahawks-Cardinals game ended controversially when the Seahawks were granted a timeout they didn't have in the final minute of the game as they attempted to score what would have been a game-winning touchdown. The Cardinals were able to hold on and win despite the mistake, however.
