Despite numerous calls for the NFL to bring an end to the referee lockout, whatever it takes, it appears increasingly likely that when the league kicks off its regular season here in a couple weeks, they will do so with replacement referees keeping tabs on the action.
Having seen these replacement officials in action this preseason, we’d imagine this is kind of concerning for a good amount of folks close to the league. But Cowboys’ owner and general manager Jerry Jones isn’t among this group, saying recently that he’s fine with the idea of the replacements calling regular season games.
“No, I’m not, at all [worried],” Jones said on 105.3 FM The Fan on Tuesday, via ESPN Dallas. “As long as it’s the same for both sides, and it will be, we’ll be all right. They’re going to get better as they go along.”
