09:19 PM ET 09.28 | It's no secret that the replacement refs were not very good at their jobs, but replacement referee Jeff Sadorus recently spoke to The New York Times and said he and fellow "scab's" got a lot more grief than they deserved and it's not the refs that should be blamed for taking attention away from the game, it's the fans who focused more on mistakes rather than football.

Dumb ****. You DIDN"T make the interference call and you were standing right there. Go back to the Lingerie League.

What a load of crap, late hits, holds just plain dumb calls no explainations , you really couldn't have done much worse. What do you think the Eagle/Giants game would deteriorate into if those clowns were still in it. As it was it reminded me more of rugby than football

Look, I don't blame the replacement refs for being incompetent. We all know they weren't qualified. If there's blame, it's directed at the NFL (meaning the greedy egotistical owners) for putting money ahead of integrity and safety. However, Jeff Sadorus and his fellow "scab's" need to take responsibility for their lack of quality and then say they did the best they could, which wasn't up to professional standards, instead of blaming fans who were just observing the poor play calling and lack of control the "scabs" had.
