spider is right in that the refs are basically fighting for their right to be incompetent with no repercussions.

As for why the new refs aren't being schooled daily? They're only making something like 3K a game. Not nearly enough to be a full-time job.

they're fighting for their pension plan

The referees' union and NFL team owners remain at odds on several issues -- pay, staffing levels and the arbitration system, to name a few. But Scott Green, the referee who's head of the NFL Referees Association, says there's one proposal above all others that he and his colleagues can't manage to swallow: the league wants to freeze their long-running pension plans and switch them to less attractive 401(k)-style retirement plans.
