By now I’m sure we’re all getting a little tired of reading about the debacle that was last night’s Packers/Seahawks game. It’s only been a few hours and we’ve already covered it to death, wringing most of the sweet juices out of it, while leaving a dry husk of scab ref/Roger Goodell hate.
This is the last story I’ll write about it, I swear. I just figured it was only fair to let Mitch Mortaza, commissioner of the Lingerie Football League, get a couple of pot shots in.
“Because of the LFL’s perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight’s event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games.”
Now that we’ve gotten the commissioner of the LFL’s opinion, I wouldn’t mind getting a few more perspectives on the subject. Maybe we can hear from Vince McMahon of the defunct XFL, or Jim Foster, founder of the AFL. Their products are almost just as relevant as the LFL, and probably only about half as stupid (and believe me, the XFL was plenty stupid).
Clearly Mortaza is trying (probably unsuccessfully) to drum up interest for his ridiculous brand of football, and I can’t really blame him.
It’s easy to kick a giant when he’s down.
*BONUS* I’m a shameless scumbag.
