Replacement Refs

Football refs were on strike, got locked out, league set up scabs, then there was a todoo over whether Green Bay or Seattle won or lost: was it a touchdown or an interception? One ref signalled touchdown, another ref signaled stop the clock, everyone insulted everyone, said Grandma could make the call … Days later the ref who signalled touchdown still says he was right.

Of course my attitude is that everyone should leave the big stadium, the hell with the pros, find a sand lot, and play all the football you want. Have any refs you want. They can form a union if they want. You can invite me to the tailgate.
That’s familiar pk; but here now is new pk:

Once upon a time the fighters fought till one of them couldn’t fight any more. Fist fights went on for dozens of rounds. Victory was unambiguous: if you were up and the other guy couldn’t get up, you were the winner. There was no arguing about whether you’d hit him in the nuts; of course you’d hit him in the nuts! And he hit you in the nuts: it’s a fight, morons.
Now though it’s not a fight, it’s a quibble among officials.
Here’s what we should do:

When there’s an issue, have the refs fight it out! Till one of them can’t get up any more.

Try it in horse racing too: can’t interpret the photo finish? don’t even try: let the jockeys duke it out.


About pk

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
