WASHINGTON, D.C. - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has reportedly called up President Obama and asked him to step in to remedy a situation that is starting to get ugly.
Goodell told the president that most of the NFL replacement referees have received threats and one identified as Rhett "Yellow Flag" Snillyguster, III, even came very close to being kidnapped on his way home after last Sunday's game.
The president was told that several of the RR's (replacement referees) have been told that if they blow anymore calls Louisiana's infamous voodoo woman Madam Lottie Jo Lafayette will be hired to cast an evil spell on them.
Madam Lottie Jo Lafayette informed Sports Balls Illustrated Daily that she has been approached by representatives of 17 of the NFL teams plus she added that she has actually taken calls from 3 NFL team owners.
President Obama has agreed that in the interest of good sportsmanship and safety he will be assigning two U.S. secret service agents to each replacement referee.
SIDENOTE: Interesting enough only three teams out of the 32 NFL teams have not issued any written complaints to the commissioner's office regarding the replacement refs. Those teams are the Houston Texans, the Atlanta Cardinals, and the Atlanta Falcons, all which just happen to be undefeated at 3-0.
