This just seems incomprehensibly stupid to me. The league is raking in billions. And somehow they are in a spat with the refs over a few dollars. They are screwing with an element that has a huge impact on the quality of the product. And for what?
For the most part they do a fairly decent job in the NFL with officiating. I don't want to see this league turn into a joke like the NBA. Officiating has ruined that league.
How has this not been resolved yet?
