Listen, we understand that the NFL replacement referees haven't been great. So, we're not particularly surprised that everyone from Steve Young to Bill Belichick has been super critical of them. What we are surprised at, though, is what lengths some people are going to rip the replacement refs to shreds. Case in point: The reaction that Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes had to the replacement refs "zebras" shortly after last night's Pats/Ravens game, which featured 24 accepted penalties and a gang of bad calls.

We get that the NFL players don't want the replacement refs anymore. But, Noah's Ark? The Great Flood? Wow! Has it really gotten that serious?
