Ref from last weeks Seahawks game was reportedly a ref for the hawks during regular season practices for the past 3 years.

Holy f**k!

You'd think somebody would have caught that!

I'm really starting to get pissed about this situation.
NFL should refund Jim Harbaugh's fine he had to pay for speaking out about these scab refs!
really doe?
Refs shouldn't be allowed to ref ANY game if they are known to be a fan of a team as opposed to just not being abld to officiate their favorite team's games...for example, suppose that ref does a Bucs or Falcons game or something, he'll probably make calls against those teams since that's tantamount to making calls FOR the Saints...

In a perfect world this would work, but it isn't possible because in order to know enough football to become a ref, you were probably a fan of a team at some point.
