I had no idea about this until yesterday but it seems that the NFL referees have been locked out since the beginning of the season because they don't want the owners to take away their pension plans! Where have we seen this scenario before? How about all over corporate America! (Caterpillar, Con Edison,Verizon, AT&T,etc...)The NFL is swimming in money, it brings in 9 billion dollars a year, yet the greedy pig owners (all multi millionaires) have a thorn in thier sides in the form of the refs pensions. The refs don't make nearly as much as you think, (about 140k a year) and would like to have some retirement security. The commissoner is a disingenuous prick who tells reporters with a straight face that he doesn't have a pension plan. Yeah but he does not mention to those reporters that he makes 10 million dollars a year! Boycott these greedy bastards until the ref's pensions are reinstated.
