A quality reason to hate ESPN

http://www.footballzebras.com/2018/0...rules-analyst/

They literally hired Jeff Triplette to be a "rules analyst"

Quote:
Nearly six months off*his retirement, Jeff Triplette is slated to join ESPN as a rules analyst along with newcomers Joe Tessitore and Jason Witten in the*Monday Night Football*booth, according to officiating and network sources.*Football Zebras*has also learned that the NFL specifically steered ESPN to hire Triplette.*He will be replacing former referee Gerald Austin, who has served on the*MNF*team since 2012.

An ESPN spokesman declined to comment.

Triplette worked in the NFL for 22 seasons as both a back judge and referee and worked his final game,*the Titans-Chiefs Wild Card game, last season.

He worked 11 postseason games, including 6 Wild Card Playoffs, 4 Divisional Playoffs, as well as the 2007 AFC Conference Championship.*Triplette served as the alternate referee for Super Bowl XLI and was the referee for the 2010 Pro Bowl.

On the field, Triplette was not immune to controversy, even among casual fans. Notably, after a controversial replay decision by Triplette in a*2013 Bengals regular season game, he was*assigned to a Bengals postseason game, which thrust Dean Blandino, who was the vice president of officiating, into the replay booth to monitor the game and consult or intervene if necessary. This was seen as*a precursor the*eventual centralization of replay*at league headquarters in New York.

His final game was also not without controversy; his former boss*Mike Pereira reluctantly criticized the crew*for its performance in the game.

Triplette is the CEO of Arbiter Sports, an online portal for high school and college officiating coordinators that streamlines the assignment and payment of officials. He is a*retired*Army Reserve*colonel*and was awarded the*Bronze Star Medal*during the first Persian Gulf War. Triplette was also the*president of the NFL Referees’ Association, the officials union, from 2013 to 2017.

ESPN reports that Austin is joining his former*MNF*compatriot Jon Gruden, as*a consultant with the Oakland Raiders. Austin is expected to remain the officiating coordinator for Conference USA.

He is only considered the worst because he was making the calls the nfl wanted him to make.

It's too much effort to hate ESPN. They have gone total SJW anyway. Sports announcers should stick to sports like entertainers should stick to entertainment. Ever since they started calling poker and spelling bee "sports", it's become a real joke. There were a number of bad calls in the game, head hunting Kelce, the forward progress call, etc. however the Chiefs have no one to blame other than themselves for losing that game. Does anyone think the Chiefs would have gone into New England at half strength again and won that game?

"....so you see here, the quarterback stepped into the pocket.....then stopped.....waited 2 seconds.......then he gets hit by a defender that knocks the ball free.......but since he stopped....forward progress had been achieved, and therefore, no possession change"

Yep - makes so much more sense reading the words out loud.

what a tool.......hired by the super-tool organization.

Steratore is a new city every night guy. He refs college basketball too. All of that has to be tough on the body.

Why would anyone want to be a ref today? In any sport.
