    good. I didn't think it would happen so quickly, but I'm glad it's done.

    If I was a replacement official I'd be relieved right now. I don't have to go out there again!

    Finally, with the timing I'd bet the NFL finally caved.

    It should be interesting to see how the game announcers react to bad calls with the regular refs back.

    This was interesting, NFL told broadcasters to take it easy on refs in week 1 because a deal was close to done, which obviously was not true.

    Re: NFL Referees agree in principle with NFL, officials could return Sunday

    Locked-out NFL referees could return as early as this week -- sources - ESPN

    The NFLRA would not unionize those officials and would want them compensated by the league if "they are brought up from the minors" to work a regular-season game.

    Goodell has wanted the power to "bench" officials who underperform or are downgraded during the season. The NFLRA contends the league already has that ability because there are always between one and four crews that sit home each week and would be more qualified to substitute in such a scenario.

    The NFLRA also wants to form an "expert committee" that would be major contributors to the league's stated goal to improve officiating. Under this proposal, the committee would be comprised of some of the top retired officials and supervisors of major college conferences who had served as NFL officials.
    lol wonder where he got this idea?
