At the beginning of the 2012 National Football League (NFL) season the officials were on strike, and the NFL decided to use a group of replacement referees, who applied the rules of the game inconsistently or not at all. This culminated in the infamous Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks game that was decided by a questionable call by the replacement refs. One would hope government regulation would be immune to similar problems, but apparently it is not. That is the only conclusion to be drawn in the case of Federal Communications Commission (FCC) v. Fox Televisions Stations that was decided June 21, 2012.
