Replacement refs were pretty bad.

But the NFL and its referees have agreed on a new labor deal. Order has been restored. The replacements have been, well, un-replaced.

Thanks to the fine folks at NOC, though, we have this ballad to remember what was.

Lyrics:

I just bought a whistle baby, whistle baby, let me ref

Girl I don't know the rules except they tell me how to dress

I just wave my arms around and then I throw my flag

I just bought a whistle baby, whistle baby... I'm a scab

I'm betting you like football

And I'm betting you love bad calls

I'm betting you like refs who make calls for teams

To win my fantasy league

Is it a fumble or a dropped pass

Is it cool to pull a facemask

It may take me a little longer

To get every call a little wronger

 

I just bought a whistle baby, whistle baby, let me ref

Girl I don't know the rules except they tell me how to dress

I just wave my arms around and then I throw my flag

I just bought a whistle baby, whistle baby... I'm a scab

 

I'm repping for my team on facebook

My last real job was as a line cook

For a Division III high school

And now I'm enforcing all these dope rules

Like calling this dude for double-dribble

My kid's hero is Roger Goodell

So whatâ??I missed a little cheap hit

Let's check a replay for the coin flip

 

I just bought a whistle baby, whistle baby, let me ref

Girl I don't know the rules except they tell me how to dress

I just wave my arms around and then I throw my flag

I just bought a whistle baby, whistle baby... I'm a scab
