Lingerie Football League announcers mock referee for his sense of direction, physique (video)

The Lingerie Football League U.S. season doesn’t get going until April, but LFL Canada is playing right now — its season got underway in mid-August. And in case you thought that the players would provide the only entertainment, please take a gander at the video below.

First the TV announcers introduce ref Mark Newlove, then begin mercilessly mocking him. Noting Newlove’s wide girth, one announcer notes “He’s no Ed Hochuli, Mike.” His partner agrees: “He definitely doesn’t have Ed Hochuli’s physique.”

Then the broadcasters laugh at the fact that Newlove is facing the wrong way while announcing a penalty. “Mark, this way! Hey, Mark!” Finally, the coup de grace:

“Looks like we’ve finally got the replacement refs back from the NFL.”

Ouch! Brutal.

    I don’t look at the refs in that league.
