"This season began with the NFL using a pool of replacement officials who were retired or came from lower college divisions and junior colleges. It will end with the NFL using a referee who might not be the most qualified.

We have confirmed in advance of the formal announcement that Jerome Boger is the referee for Super Bowl XLVII on February 3. While the NFL won’t go on record about this assignment until after the conference championship games, we know that the officiating staff has been made aware of the assignments for the big game. In fact, rumors of his assignment were known to us Dec. 30, based on sources who had knowledge of the grades and how they were finalizing. We have learned that it is believed in officiating circles that the Super Bowl assignment was a predetermined result and that his performance grades were fixed to attain that result"

The article never even offered an opinion to the biggest question in this whole process. Why the league would do this?

Although the article does not answer that question specifically, it did confirm one thing: the league will flex its muscle when it wants to.

I think that alone answers alot of questions.

After seeing the way the games played out and the total glorification of ray Lewis over the past few weeks I'm not surprised by this article. I'm beginning to think its all fixed. Both crybaby hard aughts and ray killer Lewis in the SB??????
