Everything is a game of hardball at the NFL negotiating table.

On the heels of last year's players lockout, the league is exploring the idea of using replacement officials if a labor deal can't be reached with the NFL Referees Association.

Take the following quiz to determine whether you’re substitute zebra material. You might soon have a chance to run alongside your NFL heroes, argue with your favorite coaches and earn enough dough to cover your fantasy football fees:


  • You can run faster than Vince Wilfork.

  • The Miami Dolphins are allowed to break the huddle without a legitimate quarterback.

  • It's OK to overturn a call against the Cowboys in exchange for use of a luxury suite the next week.

  • Pitbull should be banned from singing the national anthem.

  • You’re allowed to ignore holding by the Raiders, because “those bad boys play by their own rules.”

  • To celebrate your pivotal call being upheld on a challenge, it’s appropriate for you to run to the end zone and start Tebowing.
