The glaring mistakes made by these fill-ins through the first weekend of games have included a holding call on a punt returner and the adorable mislabeling of the Cardinals as the "Arizona Falcons." It should be noted that the NFL had the opportunity with this lockout to finally introduce some younger officials to the fold, as well. You know, people with crisp vision and non-arthritic joints. However, it is apparently written in stone that NFL officiating crews, be they scabs or not, must consist primarily of doddering white men aged 65 or above - and one black guy who could kind of be mistaken for Cleveland from Family Guy (there is always this guy...look for him).
In honor of this regrettable "biggest story of the preseason," OnThingz brings you its first doctored photo of the season. Enjoy.
