Lingerie Football League fires its refs who were officiating NFL games as replacements
 
The Lingerie Football League has done what many fans, players, coaches, and media members are waiting for the NFL to do: fire the replacement referees.

The LFL emailed the following statement to many media outlets including LBS to announce their decision to fire the referees they employ who were serving as replacement referees in the NFL:

“Because of the LFL’s perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer,” commissioner Mitchell Mortaza said in a statement. “Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations.
