Report: NFL, Referees Reach Agreement

Posted by Joel Price on September 26, 2012 – 9:12 PM

According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the NFL has reached an agreement with the NFL Referees Association.

The NFL reached an agreement with the NFL Referees Association late Wednesday to end the referee lockout and are working on the paperwork now, according to a league source.

A high-ranked referee told NFL.com and NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington earlier that the officials are prepared to immediately begin work, noting he and many others have gotten access to all of the videos from the last three weeks of games that were distributed to the replacement officials.

Update 9:30 P.M. PDT: Joint statement from NFL and NFLRA

The NFL and NFLRA are pleased to announce that they have reached an agreement tonight on an eight-year collective bargaining agreement, subject to ratification by the NFLRA.

“Our officials will be back on the field starting tomorrow night,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “We appreciate the commitment of the NFLRA in working through the issues to reach this important agreement.”

“Our Board of Directors has unanimously approved taking this proposed CBA to the membership for a ratification vote,” said Scott Green, president of the NFLRA. “We are glad to be getting back on the field for this week’s games.”

    Now with all the bad calls we should have a do over and start fresh with new refs. What do you think about that?

    Hey, even the so to speak “real refs” make a lot of mistakes. You can’t blame it all on the replacements. Look at Superbowl 40. You should give the replacements a pat on the back. Without them, we might have lost the whole NFL season!! There are bad calls, and missed calls all the time in every sport. And who cares if Vegas is upset….not me!!!

    I think everyone in the NFL from the top down are nothing but a bunch of over paid cry babies.

    Oh good! I don’t watch a whole lot of football and even I was cringing at the calls being made.

    I think it’s funny and interesting, how quickly we all forget how much we complain about the ref’s every season, (the real ones). The guy in the picture above cost the Chargers a game in Denver a few years ago. I applaud the replacement ref’s, for the job they did. I wonder if the ref’s got to continue their pension? How many people out there have a pension where they work? These people need to get real.
