The NFL replacement officials have taken plenty of flak following a poor showing in Week 2 last weekend.  Conan O'Brien and crew join in on the fun.

The replacement officials didn’t fare very well in Week 2 of the NFL season. There were some embarrassing gaffes. Mostly, the amount of time it took the officials to make their calls really turned fans off. The Monday Night Football game between the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons last over 3½ hours. The game featured many lengthy delays that disrupted the flow of the game.

Plenty of football fans in the Capital Region have voiced their displeasure with the replacement officials on 104.5 The Team. I think the general consensus seems to be fair. Most fans in this area seem to think that the replacement officials aren’t completely awful, but it’s clear that they’re replacements. This spoof on Conan O’Brien’s show obviously exaggerates the deficiencies of the replacement refs, but it’s pretty darn funny.
