NFL: Deal Reached With Referees, Lockout Over

Starting this evening at the Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns in Baltimore, regular NFL referees will be back on the job. From NFL.com

The NFL reached an agreement with the NFL Referees Association late Wednesday to end the referee lockout and the two sides are working on the paperwork now, according to a league source.

The league later confirmed the agreement.

A high-ranked referee told NFL.com and NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington earlier that the officials are prepared to immediately begin work, noting he and many others have gotten access to all of the videos from the last three weeks of games that were distributed to the replacement officials.

After three weeks of crappy officiating, now perhaps we can go back to enjoying football for the play on the field.
