Letter to the Editor: NFL referees and the liberal press

The national sports news media is awash in its criticism and ruination of the NFL games and this whole football season because of the replacement referees. They cannot often enough or severely enough criticize these replacements for causing our national pastime being subject to destruction by the diversity of qualifications in its members.

They are more interested in examining the qualifications of all these individuals than both candidates for president of the U.S. Why aren’t they stomping up and down demanding information and explanations on the recent activities of our president and his government?

The media never take a stance against 1) unions who do not want us to examine the qualifications of tenured teachers; 2) against people who demand equal opportunity for everyone applying to colleges despite the inequality of the applicants credentials; 3) against those who demand equal opportunity and pay for less qualified job applicants; and 4) against the demand that individuals not strong enough to do certain physical jobs be hired despite their lacking the necessary strength.

These appear to be important examples of the justice extolled for the liberal ideas of diversity. The liberals with their partners in the national press and media now demand the very quality that this band of referees possesses, the diversity they mandate for our daily lives. These referees should be right down their alley; do not worry about results as long as the means of delivery of services are fair. Certainly they cannot believe that football is more important than the success of America.
