'Real refs' send message to fans on Monday night

Let's face it: Life is markedly better now that replacement officials have been replaced by the real deal.

This goes beyond the obvious upgrade in competence we saw on display Week 4. If the fake refs were still working on Monday night, then this would've never happened ...

It's cheesy, adorable, awkward and endearing -- all at once. You guys are the best.
