NFL Negotiates With Job-Killing Referee Union
This is a guest piece by conservative blogger, Fox News contributor, paralegal, and Parent-Teacher Association President Gretchen Knox.
The NFL referee union lockout has created a lot of hubbub in the media, both liberal and real, about the need to negotiate a deal, especially after the end of Monday’s Packers-Seahawks game. Well let me tell you, I wish the NFL had not caved. While the Refs Union might not be as toxic and unpatriotic as teachers unions, they still deserve scorn.
Some people said, “but the refs blew a call! They don’t know the rules!” Well, I say that’s okay. Obama’s job-killing regulations have hurt our economy beyond repair. Green Bay didn’t lose that game because of a bad call, they lost because the invisible hand of the market said they should lose.
Not only that, but this job puts hundreds of regular-joe amateur referees out of work, forcing them to return to referee-ing Division III football games and the trollops in the Lingerie Football League. So what if they aren’t as elitist as the union refs. If they were so good, why do they need a union. In fact, why not let the refs’ jobs be tied to the standardized test scores of the NFL players!
It is rampant communism like this that reinforces my choice to vote Romney/Ryan 2012. They have promised to take a stand against corrupt unions like these, and return them to the free market and crying bald eagles America.
Obama Uses His WILDLY UNCHECKED EXECUTIVE POWER to End the BCS
President King Obama is on a rampage again! For the third consecutive week, Obama has used his wildly unchecked executive power to halt deportations of law-abiding illegal immigrants and deny congress documents pertaining to operation Fast and Furious. Now, Obama ended the Bowl Championship Series, the controversial college football championship system.
“Come 2014, the BCS is dead. A committee of university presidents on Tuesday approved the BCS commissioners’ plan for a four-team playoff to start in the 2014 season.
“The move completes a six-month process in which the commissioners have been working on a new way to determine a college football champion. Instead of simply matching the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country in a championship game after the regular season, the way the Bowl Championship Series has done since 1998, the new format will create a pair of national semifinals. No. 1 will play No. 4, No. 2 will play No. 3.”
Sure, Obama didn’t explicitly have anything to do with the end of the BCS, but I am sure the university presidents were fearful that Obama would come after them next. Like most of his subjects, Obama has never been a fan of the BCS.
The Obama administration is considering several steps that would review the legality of the controversial Bowl Championship Series, the Justice Department said in a letter Friday to a senator who had asked for an antitrust review.
In the letter to Sen. Orrin Hatch, obtained by The Associated Press, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich wrote that the Justice Department is reviewing Hatch’s request and other materials to determine whether to open an investigation into whether the BCS violates antitrust laws.
This is clearly just a cheap move by the Obama campaign to appeal to the south, who will now send four teams to the BCS final four every year.

God picks Tebow Over Lin
New York — The New York Knicks announced today that patient zero of Linsanity, Jeremy Lin, will be out for six weeks after he undergoes surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee.
As I reported earlier, the press exploded when former Denver Broncos QB was kicked out/released to the New York Jets, mostly because they had nothing better to do but also because it would be the collision of two huge storylines. Sports are all about storylines.
Anyway, Lin’s surgery clearly shows that God intends for Tebow to be his #1 rep in New York City. This must hurt for Lin, who did a great job representing himself, his religion, and most importantly, allowing borderline racist puns in sports media.
This is a huge blow to people who like to project their beliefs and aspirations onto people who get paid large sums of money to stay in shape and play a game.
Tebow Heads to the Jets. Is New York the “Holiest City in Sports?”
The most recent NFL and NBA seasons have been huge for fans of projecting culture wars onto individuals who get paid millions of dollars to play a game and stay in shape. Yesterday, former Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was traded to the NY Jets because they now have Peyton Manning. Tebow must feel hurt that the Broncos would take a broken QB past his prime over a Heisman trophy winning QB who kind of did better than expected for a few games.
With Knicks star Jeremy Lin already in NYC, this makes it the holiest town in all of pro sports.
More importantly, Tebow and Lin have the potential to become the dynamic duo of sports memes. After just one season of both in the spotlight, we got the boring “Tebowing” meme and the equally lazy “let’s make everything a pun of Lin” meme.
Hopefully, this tea-up will inspire sports headlines to new heights like, “New York has the Mandate of Heaven.”
