Real NFL refs return; world resumes spinning
The Kansas City Star
Forget Obama vs. Romney.
Americans knew what was really important the last three weeks. To wit: Replacement referees were ruining the NFL.
So we whined, moaned and otherwise criticized the league and commissioner Roger Goodell. We threatened to stop watching the games. Which, of course, the NFL knew would never happen.
But late Wednesday, the NFL announced it had a new pact with the NFL Referees Association.
So the world may now resume spinning,
And most Americans who were so irate over the replacement refs can go back to ignoring the presidential campaign.
Hmmm. Maybe we need a few new priorities in this nation.
