    Let me get this straight. They are supposed to work fulltime which means only 3hrs a week. What do they do with the rest of the week, play Madden?

    Those are current numbers based on part time salaries. I think full time refs will make more than 78k. The NBA refs make over 300k.

    $78,000 to start? That's more than most people make, but couldn't even buy a shack in most major metro areas right now with that.

    I imagine they'll have one full time official assigned to every game to oversee the other ones. If so, it should be interesting to see if it helps.

    refs didn't actually NEED to work a second job... they get paid over 150 K a year. A lot of them did anyways. Only thing that is different now is it is probably written in the contract they can no longer be employed elsewhere.

    Amuses me those that keep complaining about the officials and then immediately say this will not make a difference. Also laughing at those saying it will be harder to fire officials. How many have been fired say in the last 10 years under the current system?
    This is a change which makes it an opportunity. Now it is up to the NFL to do something right for a change.

    Pretty much all of them.

    Many of them are lawyers and businessmen that make good money. This would be a massive pay cut.

    Several referees make a lot more than 150K at their primary job.

    (And by the way, $150K ain't squat to these guys.)

    All the other major sports play 7 days a week and the refs and umps work all week

    Most NFL refs work one game a week.... big difference
    I like the Madden Idea
