NFL is reviewing scab refs social media sites to prevent any more conflicts
By now you know that a fauxO was removed from officiating the Saints/Panthers game cause he was pictured wearing a Saints shirt. To me, the worst part of it was the comments his friends were leaving about sticking it to certain teams or whatever. Bad enough that the ref posted the photo on August 25th (well after fauxOs officially started due to the RealO lockout). But whose adult friends make comments on their facebook pages that could snatch away an opportunity for them. That was confusing to me.
Obviously, the fauxOs are coming from high schools, division III college schools and the lingerie league so their NFL allegiances were neither here nor there in the past. But now they most certainly are. NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello said there would be a review conducted to prevent any further appearance of bias.
