Where would replacement refs actually WORK?


With news of the Replacement Referee Error…er, Era…coming to an end in the NFL, many of those officials will be looking for jobs in the real world. This got us at the Saratogian sports department thinking (always a dangerous thing) about what they could do while actually presenting improvements doing it. Here, now, is my list of the top five occupations.

5) Heading the search for a new governing body at New York State thoroughbred racetracks. At least then the mistakes that are made will be funny!
4) Scriptwriters for the hit TV series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”
3) Commissioners of major American sports leagues.
2) Social media guardians of American professional athletes.
1) United States Congress.

Got another idea? Comment away.
