I absolutely abhor anything to do with professional sports. While these atheletes and officials certainly are good in their chosen careers, the amount of money on the table is simply ridiculous. While the vast majority of hard-working, honest Americans scrape out a living for a few thousand dollars a month, these clowns are collecting tens of thousands per day, then have the audacity to ask for more AND, whenever there is some disaster or tragedy somewhere in the world, they ask us to help. PLEASE.

The refs are really not asking for that much...$275.00 per game. That only amounts to a total of $3.25 million for all of them combined. So I say to the NFL...Shut up and pay them!!

I think the poll is missing a fourth option... allow a business and their outside contractor to negotiate amongst themselves without interference.

PAY THEM.... THAT IS A ROUGH PROFESSION.

Brian, these refs earned an average of $149k last year. Not bad, but they are the best in their profession, under intense public pressure, and earn a lot less than the athletes - let alone the teams.
