Seriously though, the Saints can't blame it on the refs when everyone knows they don't have any defense which is nothing compared to what Buffalo has. It appeared maybe the NHL was until talks broke off. It"ll take some kind of PR disaster.

It'll have to be something (like with the NFL and refs), where it was bad for the game. After a few weeks of missed/botched calls, dangerous hits that were going unpunished, tales of refs telling players they have them in their pools, etc... For the NFL to wake up and make a deal to get the refs and their game back.

Something like this will have to happen with hockey or else this lockout could drag on for a long while. Maybe a team or 2 in a weak market will have to fold before both sides wake up, stop thinking about lining their own pockets and think what is best for the NHL.

The last part is a foregone conclusion. The NFL fiasco was also an expected result of using high school and Division III officials who can't keep pace with the speed of the pro game instead of Division I referees like they did previously. Why go that route if you're going to use replacements?

Blame it on the refs. Everyone has. :lol:

Oh right, refs are back, can't blame them no more.

Maybe the NHL should take note of what happened in the NFL.

Let scabs play the games, after enough complaints they'll bring back the players. :)

Like I said on the "Collective Bargaining Agreement" thread, the NFL tried this move and failed miserably.

Ten days after what was called the "Inaccurate Reception" heard around the world, replacement referee Wayne Elliott admitted they erred on the call and were not in proper position to make the call. Elliott acknowledged their grasp of the rulebook wasn't the greatest.

Big surprise.

Knew the truth would eventually come out in the wash, but didn't expect it so soon.

Buffalo gets torched for 621 yards against San Francisco in a 45-3 loss. We'll find out how bad their defense is next week against Arizona. It's doubtful their luck will get any better, but the Cardinals running backs corps is depleted with Ryan Williams out for the year with a separated shoulder and Beanie Wells nursing a turf toe. A third back is also hurt.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reissues bounty suspensions to Scott Fujita, Anthony Hargrove, Jonathan Vilma, and Will Smith. Hargrove and Fujita will return with reduced suspensions. Vilma will miss the entire season and smith's suspension will remain at four games. The players can further delay their suspensions by appealing through their contracts or by asking a federal judge in New Orleans to revist their earlier requests for an injunction to block the suspensions.

Philadelphia blows a 10 point fourth quarter lead and hands Detroit a 26-23 overtime victory at Philadelphia. The Lions would get 17 points in the fourth quarter due to defensive breakdowns. A Jason Hanson field goal at the end of regualtion, after two Detroit misfires, forced overtime. A 45 yard field goal would win it for the Lions who were somewhat lethargic on offense.
