Time for real officials to get a deal done

The officiating in the Cowboys-Giants game was far from perfect, but it wasn't bad considering the circumstances. I only hope that the rest of the games this weekend are as good or better.

Coaches keep their jobs based on wins and losses and officiating plays a big role in their fates. It's time for the real officials get a deal done. A large number of fans I communicate with via email or my radio show aren't sympathic with the officials looking for a better deal.
