    NFL Refs Return To Work

    Good News for us NFL fans!

    Sept 27 (Reuters) - To the relief of fans, players and owners, the National Football League's (NFL) regular referees will return to work on Thursday after a deal was struck to end a damaging months-long lockout of unionised game officials.


    The storm of criticism following a botched call that handed the Seattle Seahawks a victory at the expense of the Green Bay Packers on Monday added a sense of urgency to talks between the league and NFL Referees Association (NFLRA) and a new eight-year deal was reached just before midnight on Wednesday.


    "It's great news for everyone - players, fans, sponsors and the league," Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan told Reuters on Thursday. "We look forward to seeing NFL officials back in uniform at EverBank Field on Sunday and well beyond."


    The lockout had been in place since June when talks on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) broke down, forcing the NFL to use poorly qualified replacement referees for the pre-season and opening three weeks of the regular season.

    I'm wondering, too.
