Lingerie Football League says they released some of the NFL replacement crews due to incompetence

Everyone is in an uproar over the replacement officials in the NFL. The President even made mention of the situation on Twitter.


But one of the most amusing reactions has to be that of the Lingerie Football League. Apparently some of these same refs were once employed by the LFL but were let go because of incompetence.

“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”

So there you go, when the Lingerie Football League feels the need to tell you that the refs are impacting the game, you might want to get on the ball owners.
