BOYCOTT the NFL Network’s own Thursday Night Football in protest of Replacement Refs

If you are as disgusted as I am over what the NFL is doing to ruin the game we love so much; if you are disturbed by the lack of qualifications and performance of the “Replacement” Refs, make your displeasure known to the NFL; its only 1 game, on a night we’re not yet addicted to watching all season.

Do you really want to sit through another 2 hour long first-half of a game like the Monday Night Fiasco between the Broncos and Falcons? Do you really want to prop up the NFL’s ratings, thus giving them justification that the use of “Replacement” Refs won’t matter to the millions of fans?

Let’s send Roger Goodell a message; “we don’t like what you’re doing to our game”. Let’s send all the Owners a message: “Take back quality control of the game, or we will not continue to enable you to earn money from advertisers”.
