Close Up Shop, We've Got The Final Word On Replacement Refs

We've heard from pundits, announcers, union reps and players regarding the current state of the NFL replacement referees. People are understandably up in arms and the amount of errors made by the substitute officials seems to have leaped exponentially on Sunday. But now we've finally received the final word on the crisis that is tearing the league apart. Hit the jump to see the knockout blow.

This tweet was sent out on Sunday evening.

Yes, that's a tweet from THE James Van Der Beek. Dawson himself. Jonathan Moxon. You know; the guy who doesn't want ... YOUR LIFE.

Please hear the enlightened words of Mr. Van Der Beek, Commissioner Goodell. Let us not wallow in the darkness. Let Dawson instead guide us into the light.
