    I would.

    My company makes millions upon millions of dollars of a year too, but that doesn't mean I'm entitled to make $150,000 a year minimum because of it & then demand a higher salary.
    What? You don't work for a major bank?

    All I'm saying is $150,000 a year minimum seems quite satisfactory for a part time gig.
    The players only play a real game once a week too. Are you saying that is a part time gig?

    I understand that the refs do other things and have other professions, but they are also the top people in the country at this job. It has taken many years at low pay to get there, and they have to know the rules inside and out. It also takes away their weekends, and sometimes their holidays, in the backside of their lives. It is sort of silly for a multibillion dollar league to try to shortchange these guys.

    I do believe the NFL should have a referee committee of former refs and the league head ref to review personnel. If the officials want to be paid to be on top, they need to be the best and allow their performances to be under review in the booth.

They are a spoiled lot that usually gets calls to win games. It did not work out this time. Oh ya, tell that puzzie Rodgers to quit whining now.
