One Encouraging Thing

Postby Mad City Mike on Tue Feb 21, 2006 10:13 am

[T]he league will gain broader rights to re-assign or replace officials for non-performance.


We'll see how often they use it. In the past, buffoons like Stewart and Devorski rose though the ranks in what seemed to be a pure seniority-based system. It seemed the only way to get rid of them was if they retired. Perhaps this gives a little more hope that they will weed out the bad apples (Auger comes immediately to mind here), thus improving the end product. But I ain't beting on it :cry:
