Smile So you think you can ref?

Wouldn't that make a great reality show for TV? We could have coaches ref scrimmages and have three refs judge them. Any nominations? Personally, I'd love to be on the judges panel with Juulie and Joey Crawford.

How about some suggested judging comments, like "You called over-the-back three times - get over it" or "REACH!!!??? REACH!!!??? - why don't you "REACH" for a rulebook" or "I'd comment on what you just called, but I left my English-Jibberish dictionary at home".

I like the concept, but I also think you have too much time on your hands until you summer leagues kick in.

Unfortunately, my meds were taken by an alien who came down in his ship from the Diebler nebula. He was very nice but I think he conducted too many probes. He promised he would give the meds to the attendant for safe keeping. I think I'll get another bottle right after Nurse Ratched calls "lights out". If I'm a good boy and behave myself, I get extra Jello on Tuesdays.

You need someone on the panel with a British accent, so they can say, "Well, that was bloody awful!!" It just doesn't come across as well in American.

How about Aussie Ref? His accent is probably close enough, mate.

Maybe a "football" referee?

Or would that require us to up the dosage of Padgett's meds?
