    My social media world is full of football fans claiming their NFL viewing days are over as long as the replacement refs remain.

    What say you, SJ?

    I've seen that too. I suppose there's a chance they go from 20 million viewers to 19.95 million next weekend.

    If they're anything like me, they're full of shit. I've "quit" the NFL 100 times, and it never lasts to the following weekend.

    I hope replacement refs work all the Packers games the rest of the year.

    Hell yes I'll still watch.

    And I'll be hoping for a more egregious ref mistake next Thursday, Sunday and Monday.

    I think Bubbler might be the one person who actually won't watch.

    This is on the players and coaches to fix if they care. They're the ones getting fucked. Brees, Brady, Manning and the others were all too happy to get together about their slice of the pie during their negotiations. If they banded together tomorrow and said every interview they do from now until the end of the season is going to be about this topic, that would turn up the heat.

    I'd watch a game officiated by syphilitic weasels as long as the Packers lose on the final play.

    I agree with most of what you wrote there, LTL. But I think Packers fans got fucked tonight, too.

    Yep. I've got Fox Soccer, beIN Sport, and on alternate Sunday's, Formula One, to satisfy my viewing jones. Truth is, I often watch those anyway if the games suck.
