Foot Locker NFL Replacement Refs Do NOT Work For Us

EXCLUSIVE
0926-foot-locker
The NFL did NOT secretly hire black-and-white-striped Foot Locker employees to work as replacement referees ... despite all the terrible calls recently ... this according to the sneaker giant.

Foot Locker just released a statement, saying, "Despite recent allegations, our employees have spent the last few weeks at our stores and not at NFL games.”

It's all in response to a joke making the rounds on the Internet ... that the replacement refs are so bad, they must actually be Foot Locker employees.

In case you live under a rock, the employees at Foot Locker wear a referee outfit as part of their uniform -- and they'd probably make better calls too. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
