08:04 AM ET 09.28 | The "real" refs are back, though wearing stripes in the NFL remains no easy day for the regulars. [While] Steelers players say they discovered a new appreciation for them after watching their replacements try to call games, that won't stop linebacker Larry Foote from treating them any differently. "It's an emotional game," Foote said after hearing the lockout was over. "I'm always yelling at the officials -- old, new, replacement." Yet he welcomes the return of the professionals because he saw what happened during the preseason and the three regular-season games with the replacements. "They are the best at what they do, no doubt about that. We can clearly see that. Without those guys, the play is a lot slower, some bad calls."

Foote was recently asked about female refs and was quoted as saying "they are more fair than men and know how to catch men cheating"

Thats bad for the Steelers then

That's bad for the Steelers, an honest ref

Foote should keep his mouth shut and quit drawing attention to himself. I'm always yelling at my TV because he is NOT the best at what he does, no doubt about that. We can clearly see that. He was two steps late all day.

That's a pretty funny line. Nice response to a question he probably wasn't expecting.

How is this a story: The regular refs are better than the replacements, but I'll still yell at them if a call goes against me?
