Pete Carroll on officiating impasse: 'It's time for it to be over'
Coach Pete Carroll was not critical of the officiating per se, but he made it very clear after Monday's game he would like to see a resolution to the lockout that has the league using replacement referees:
"It's time for it to be over. It's time for this to be over. My hats off to these officials. They're doing everything they can to do it as well as they can. They have great pride. They're working their tails off. It demonstrates how difficult it is. It's a very, very complex process to handle these games and makes these decisions. There's nothing easy about it, and it takes years and years of experience to pull off properly and in a timely fashion and keep the flow of the game alive and all that. It's time for it to be over. The league deserves it. Everybody deserves it."
