NFL on Fox rules analyst Mike Pereira has one of the most interesting Twitter feeds in sports. He's constantly interacting with followers and answering questions during games about certain plays and refereeing decisions. On Twitter, Pereira again shows why he's been one of the most innovative and effective hires in the sports media in the last five years.
Given Pereira's history as the NFL's VP of Officiating and his current pundit role at Fox, he's in a unique position to comment on the refereeing crisis facing the league. In last week's podcast with Curt Menefee, we talked about the furor over replacement refs as being a bit overrated, but that changed Monday night. The Falcons-Broncos game was a mess and there were several glaring errors. When that's piled on a ref actually being taken off the Saints-Panthers game for being a Saints fan and a ref telling Lesean McCoy about his fantasy team, it's time to get the real refs back.no comments
