Martin’s crew worked two Bills games last season – at Minnesota and home against the Jets. The Bills were called for 12 penalties that cost them 184 yards against the Vikings and seven penalties for 47 yards against New York.

Illegal use of apostrophe, not a possessive. That's a 10 yard penalty, repeat the down.

Tom "Jungle Boy" Sifferman is an old buddy of Ed Hochuli's.  He was a wing official with him and his replay official for many years.

Exactly what I wonder with a lot of these jobs. Police office, EMT, correctional officer. All of those jobs work hours and days that are all over the place. I understand the lawyers or business owners being able to just step away.

LMAO, didn’t realize we racked up ~200 yards in penalties when we spanked the Vikings.

Maybe the refs should get nicknames on their shirt backs like the XFL used to have for quick identification.....
