The replacement refs are gone now, but don’t put them in history’s dustbin just yet: as the world at large still celebrates the regulars’ return, more of an effort is being made to present the refs as sympathetic figures. (Much easier to do that, of course, when they’re out of the picture and not being accused of screwing up America’s favorite sport.) There was this ESPN story that aimed to “give [the] replacement referees a proper sendoff,” and last night, two replacement officials visited Showtime’s Inside the NFL to give us a better idea of what being in their shoes was like for three week.
