He said he was fed up with them not getting their backpay and expenses. Sounds like he's going after the league for its incompetence and continued deciet and corruption. Go get them!
Not true... The officials were only owed travel expenses and those have all been paid. So, now you will have to find something else to try to sensationalize..
I believe it was/is the teams responsibility to pay the refs after each game. I do not know if that money came from the team or league level.
For a fact I know all NIFL league employed personel have not been paid as agreed, although the NIFL will deny this. I'm sure there are those at the team level out there still not fully paid.

If you guys are doing this as a hobby, I could see why getting paid on time and/or at all would not be a prime consideration.
However, if you guys need to get paid why do you even officiate the very next game when you didn't get paid for travel expenses for the prior game?
If I did some type of labor for someone/some organization and didn't get paid on time/started to constantly get "it's coming soon" excuses I'd cut my losses and walk.
The research is out there. The NIFL is financially unstable. Unless you don't mind officiating the NIFL as a payless hobby, why do it?
