On a football Sunday fans happy regular refs are on the field

Posted:

It wouldn't be a Sunday in the fall without a little football.  But NFL fans haven't been too happy lately with substitute referees filling in during a lockout.  Now that a new contract has been agreed upon, regular refs are back on the field.  We went to talk to football fans, and boy are they happy to have them back!  Ramon Thrist said, "This week they're making the right calls at the right time."  Monica Rodriguez said, If you ask a server to go back and be a cook they're going to be a deer in the headlights for awhile.  Kinda the same thing with the sub refs you know you're asking somebody to come in a do a job that they're probably not used to doing.  So you're going to have some shady calls."

Remember that controversial call from the Packers Seahawks game?  The restaurant we visited stayed open one hour later than normal to find out the final call.
