Who has the ball?

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against all football officials since 1932. After so many calls are being reversed with the use of the 'Instant replay," the lawfirm of Dewey, Cheatem and Howe has instigated the action.

They have contracted with the firm of Ashmal, Ahsam and Shai, of Bombay, India, to input all of the penalty data from all of the high school, college and professional football games since 1932. They then will input all of the penalty data on all games since the replay was initiated for comparison.

The firm of Statistics R Us, located in San Bruno, California is then going to input all of that data into their BCM-L147-AG Computer, manufactured by RONCO, and with the results of these statistics, they will then be able to determine which games, by percentage of missed calls, should have been reversed.

Judge Jason Seldom Heard ruled that he could not find any statutes that pertain to a Statute of Limitations regarding "Missed or innappropriate Calls" during football games. "As I see it," Judge Heard stated, "All of those officials that made those unpopular, innappropriate, missed calls are liable for their poor judgement. Millions of dollars are involved in illegal and legal betting, and I think it is time to resolve this situation."

"We should not penalize those who played in the earlier games just because instant replay had not been developed. Right is right. I know I've lost my share of bets, some I could have won if not for some penalty or a missed call by some old official. My bookies will hear from me as soon as this gets settled," he closed with.
