Re: NFL Officiating
To back up my point of NFL officials becoming celebrities Ed Hochuli is on the cover of SI.
The two things that the NFL officials do better is keep the flow of the game going and have a firm knowledge of the rules. For the most part I don't think the replacement refs made any more questionable or awful calls than the usual refs do. They did let the game get out of control at times and didn't understand some of small intricacies of the rules.
