NFL, Refs Agree To A Deal

According to Adam Schefter and Chris Mortenson of ESPN, the NFL and the locked out officials (NFLRA) have come to an agreement.

Here is the tweet:

This comes on the heels of the Monday Night Football controversy when it appeared the replacement officials made a horrible call, basically screwing the Green Bay Packers out of a victory.

Many wondered if the media storm created by the incident would force the NFL’s hand. While we don’t yet know how much each side caved, it is apparent that what happened earlier this week likely moved things along.

Now we can get back to complaining about the regular officials.

    Well that’s good!

    I’m glad that MNF call was against one of the NFL darlings, if it had been against the Chiefs it wouldn’t have mattered.

    • Altarium

      I think that what really mattered was the fact that this happened at the end of a close game that could have gone either way the entire night, not just because it was the Packers (though I admit that likely contributes to some of the media coverage). If it happened in the middle of a game and wasn’t “game deciding” (yes I know any score could be considered “game deciding”); it would have been just as awful, but a lot less attention given to it no matter who the team was. Of course, that could be the Packer fan in me (don’t worry, I’m always Chiefs first) lol

      so true KC always gets crapped on. Jamaal Charles goes off for 33 carries and 230+ yards,breaks 2 Chiefs records and what does the media do? Interviews Drew Brees about their loss.

    • KCMikeG

      So true! You have Brady during the game calling for the refs to get a deal and Brees Sunday too. I agree and am thrilled that they are back but I also think being 1-2 and 0-3 had plenty to do with them speaking out.

    Now the teams who have been playing dirty will pay for it, I’m looking at you Steve Carroll

    • KCMikeG

      Couldn’t agree more. Tamba & Hali will reek havoc if holding is called again like it used to be (sort of – well kind of – except on Hali of course).

  • big chief

    Sweet! Now if we can get a real president again things will be looking up.

    • KCMikeG

      Sorry but they don’t get any more fake than Romney.

      Gary Johnson FTW!
