Lost Their Way

Okay, this is just getting ignorant.  It seems that the NFL has locked out its referees over a payment dispute and is using replacement referees to call games.  There have been some bad calls, and when I walked through the football locker room today all I heard about was the horrific call in the last seconds of the Green Bay - Seattle game.  Okay, I get it.

But someone should tell me why the US has an official policy on NFL football.
Carney said he had talked to the president this morning about it. Carney noted that the president had discussed the issue last week in an interview with a Cleveland radio station and “as a sports fan he thought it was time to get back to the regular refs. This morning I talked to him about the end of the Packers-Seahawks game and he said that what happened in that game is a perfect example of why both sides need to come together, resolve their differences so that the regular refs can get back on the field and we can start focusing on a game that so many of us love rather than debating whether of not a game is won or lost because of a bad call.
Uuuh, Mr. President, just for the record. The Middle East is in an uproar, you've had an ambassador murdered, your foreign policy is in tatters, the economy is in the doldrums, half of American hates you, and you're worried about FOOTBALL? SERIOUSLY?

You don't have time to watch football, Mr. President.  You don't have time to play golf.  Frankly, with every initiative of your administration going down the toilet, I don't believe that you need to be watching TV at all.  We're paying you to do a job, not to campaign, not to play golf, certainly not to watch football.  Get your sorry ass to work.  The NFL is perfectly capable of screwing this up without you.

No, I want him to play golf 24-7, play basketball, watch football...ANYTHING that keeps him far away from the levers of power. The very LAST thing we need him to do is his "job".
