Fired for WHAT!? - Saints Fan on Facebook

Do you ever watch your favorite NFL team and think that the referee must be a fan of the other team? Well, apparently (to the surprise of no one) NFL referees are fans of the NFL and sometimes even their hometown team.

The NFL pulled a ref from this past weekend's Saints game because it turns out he is a Saints fan. Anybody want to guess what blew his cover? If you said, "Facebook," then you're today's big winner. His Facebook page included pictures of him tailgating in Saints gear. He also posted that he would be officiating a Saints game, which prompted the reply "Hey, now be nice with those yellow flags for our Saints!!"

Technically, I don't think he was actually fired - just pulled from the Saints game. No doubt, countless fans are now scouring Facebook for "incriminating evidence" on other referees. Maybe somebody should check out the guy who made this phantom pass interference call in the Steelers game. Seriously buddy - what happened?
