Replacement Referee Terrified By Strange Ball-Like Object

New, comments

The replacement NFL referees sure have a thankless job. They're taking on an already crummy and widely-ridiculed position, but they're not even the guys who are supposed to be there. They're the understudy dung-shovelers. The stand-in carnival janitors. They're the guy who opens for Jeff Dunham.

But still, though: they should probably be familiar with a football and how to at least attempt to catch one. Because this business simply will not fly:

/everyone is already milling around on the sidelines

"Yeah, that's better. Just watch it, buddy. Liable to ... put someone's ... eye out ... "

/trails off

/literally no one is paying attention

"Ahem. Third down. I MEAN FIRST, POOP."
