    I hope after what has been happening the past 3 weeks. Me and the guys at work were saying that the refs should demand double after that monday night call haha.

    The trick was that the current lawsuit with the former players gained leverage by the owners locking out the trained officials.The attorneys for the former players were going to issue sopenas for current player whom suffered concussions during the games that the lock out officials worked.sighting that the games were a free for all with the players and some head coaches telling the refs what to call thus decreasing player safety.the NFL wants to settle the case with the former players not lose it so a deal was made.

    This sucks and all Steeler fans should be up in arms. Now our D is gonna getflagged like crazy. At least with the replacement refs, they didn't get the Gooddeel Castro memo to falg first and decide on penalty later.

    Albert Breer of NFL Network is reporting that the league and the union have agreed on the proposal for three full crews’ worth of officials to be hired (21 in total). The new officials would have an apprenticeship role, being mentored by the current referees, presumably by rotating them into existing crews to gain field experience - 1:01pm EST


    Peter King: I’m hearing NFLRA negotiator Scott Green has notified officials that a deal is not imminent. Stay tuned, obviously. 1:27pm EST

    About all the fans could take. The NFL offices fielded some 70000 calls after this week (especially the Green Bay debacle.)

    Looks like they'll be back to work tonight!

    The new collective bargaining agreement is the longest between the league and game officials in NFL history.

    NFL referee Ed Hochuli told NFL.com's Jeff Darlington that he's ready to work a game this weekend. The officials expect to ratify the deal Saturday morning, Hochuli said.

    "But all 121 guys and I are very glad we're back," Hochuli said. "We are ready. We missed preseason, and there's nothing we can do about missing on-field practice. But we've worked very, very hard over the last several months. We've taken 18 extensive rules tests, watched hours and hours of video every week. We've worked very hard to be prepared. I think we're ready."

    When asked how many curls he did when he heard the rumors that a deal might be getting done today, the famously muscular Hochuli said, "As soon as I heard the rumors, I got down on the floor and started doing pushups."

    » The current defined benefit pension plan will remain in place for current officials through the 2016 season (or until the official earns 20 years of service). The defined benefit plan then will be frozen.

    » Retirement benefits will be provided for new hires, and for all officials beginning in 2017, through a defined contribution arrangement, which will have two elements: an annual league contribution made on behalf of each game official that will begin with an average of more than $18,000 per official and increase to more than $23,000 per official in 2019, and a partial match on any additional contribution that an official makes to his 401(k) account.

    » Apart from their benefit package, the game officials' compensation will increase from an average of $149,000 per year in 2011 to $173,000 in 2013, rising to $205,000 by 2019.

    » Beginning with the 2013 season, the NFL will have the option of hiring a number of officials on a full-time basis to work year-round, including on the field.

    » The NFL will have the option to retain additional officials for training and development purposes and can assign those additional officials to work NFL games. The number of additional officials will be determined by the NFL.
