Mike Pereira says replacement officials ‘sad’
Pereira said the state of the officiating was “sad” because it’s undone work to get officiating where they want it. He said the League has been working on getting officials to control a game and keep it moving. And now that’s been thrown out the window.
Pereira said if he was still head of the officials, he’d tell Roger Goodell they need to get this done. “We need to somehow light a fire for both side,” Pereira said. Pereira said he’s been around Goodell a lot, and he thinks he is bothered by this.
