thought it was worth its own mention and discussion here...



Per, @mortreport the NFLRA and the league have an agreement at hand and are working to get the real refs on the field this weekend.

Its about time, honestly. The regular refs arent perfect themselves, but I think its clear they have much better control of the game than the replacement refs.

I never followed it too closely, but i think the refs want a raise and to keep there pension, but the NFL was saying one or the other. Could be wrong, im sure its not that simple.

Good. It will be a return to normalcy. At least the regular refs know which team to screw over.

The refs were offered more money, less pension, and the NFL wanted to be able to remove refs based on performance and have 3 crews of stand by in rotation.

What I believe has happened

3 crews in training

Reduced pension amount.

Shouldnt be unreasonble with what the NFL wants. The refs shouldnt have job security if they are making bad calls. The rotation idea is a good idea.

I can deal with the bad calls every now and then, but just plain not understanding the rules, not understanding procedures, that's what really bothers me. There have been games where the refs spend up to 5 minutes trying to get a call sorted out. That's inexcusable.

Also should be pointed out that while there was added pressure from Monday and the procedural mess-ups, before games started on Sunday and throughout all of Sunday Goodell was already talking with the Ref's union.

I think you guys will get it together sooner rather than later. Any team with an elite QB always has my vote of confidence. I can't wait for Vikes-Pack twice during the last stretch of the season; I feel our rivalry games are always a good watch.

Oh, and Fus Ro Dah!
