As Sweet as Vinegar Strokes: "The League" Teasers

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trailers | September 26, 2012 | Comments ()


There are a few more teaser videos on the YouTube page for "The League."

Just speculating here, but could the replacement ref fiasco actually be an entirely engineered event? Think about it. Year after year, fans complain about the officials, heap abuse on every questionable call. But after these few weeks? Football fans will tell their grandkids about this when they complain about officials in 2040. No one is going to complain about officials like they used to once this is over. By taking a short term hit of looking like douchebags (and really, do you think NFL owners care much about that), they've garnered the long term benefit of demonstrating that their product is far higher quality than people thought.

Bitch at the refs? After penalties and touchdowns more fictional than Mayberry, I don't think a single football fan isn't dreaming of Ed Hochuli's comforting biceps.
