When officials go bad
The controversy over the replacement referees in the NFL is boiling over. The regular refs have been locked out in an ongoing war over a new contract. This past weekend, the pretend-refs were horrendous. More and more coaches and players are voicing their complaints.
And now the league has suspended one. His name is Brian Stopolo. He was refereeing games at the division-3 level in College Football before this.
Brian was set to officiate Sunday’s Saints-Panthers game when the league decided he might lack the proper objectivity. Seems he’s a lifelong Saints fan. How do we know? He’s got a picture of himself posted on Facebook outside the Superdome and decked out in Saints gear.
Not only does the NFL want nothing to do with him, but I’m guessing that application to join “Mensa” will be rejected as well.
