The bombshell of the show came early when Glenn Moore declared his [...]

Replacement refs really an army of clones sent to kill us all!

Replacement refs really an army of clones sent to kill us all!

The first photos of the replacement referees are out… and it's clear that the contract negotiations are a front for unleashing an army of killer clones onto an unsuspecting population.  Can you tell clone #158 apart from #129?  I can't.    No one can… except for David Stern in his evil lair, evilly stroking his [...]
