back in 85 some stupid radio station gave out the home phone number for Don Denkinger. He's the ump who blew the call at first base and caused St Louis the World Series.
he was inundated with phone calls all hours of the day and night. His wife was on the receiving end of a lot of abusive threatening calls.
While I was crushed by the call I don't think anyone deserved that kind of treatment.


I don't know whether or not he's getting threatening calls, but he's certainly being hounded by the press:

Reached for comment by Mail Online on Tuesday, a tired-sounding Mr Easley declined to comment and said he had to refer all questions to the NFL office in New York.

They work on average 36 hours per week. They don't just show up for Sunday.


Never having been an NFL ref, I have no idea what they're weekly schedule is (obviously).

I've seen reports that they make $150K a year. Of course, I have no idea how accurate that figure is, but if it is accurate they are well compensated.

The 36 hour average per week you speak of is actually "time from home" hours, not actual hours worked. A good portion of the official have full time jobs they work during the week.

Average pay next season for an official is $173,000.
The minimum salary for an NFL player next season is $355,000.

So, like they leave home Sat afternoon and return home Sun night? And there's your 36 hours? I'm back to my original statement then--they're getting a LOT of money for a few hours 1/3 of the year.

So you think they don't watch video of games and other forms of training to better hone their ability to make good calls?

I missed the smiley face at the end of your post. [grin1]

If you said video games instead of video of games, I'd say yes. But based on observation I'd have to say no... Flapper
