Column: Time to replace the NFL replacements
Question of the Day
“I don’t know what they’re arguing about, but I got a couple of mill on it, so let’s try to make it work,” Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. “I’m sure the locker room could put up some cash and try to help the cause out.”
The NFL doesn’t need the cash. It got plenty back from the players after locking them out last year. Teams are making money and lots of it for their owners, many of whom are already millionaires many times over.
What it needs are competent referees.
And, please, don’t take too long to think about it.
