    UTKevinAcee: ESPN reporting agreement between NFL and officials. Regulars could be back Sunday.(5 minutes ago from Twitter for iPhone)

    DSmithShow: Mortensen said he's had "at least one credible source" tell him the deal is "done" but he "can't get that confirmed yet". Journalism? (5 minutes ago from Twitter for iPad)

    SportsCenter: Sources: There's an agreement in principle at hand between NFL & NFLRA. If completed, refs could return as early as Sun. (via @mortreport) (27 minutes ago from Adobe® Social, retweeted by annieheilbrunn and 4662 others)

    JasonLaCanfora: There will be debate and back-and-forth about how close the NFL is to deal w/refs. And until its over, it ain't over. But... (2 minutes ago from Twitter for Android)

    JasonLaCanfora: Bottom Line: things would have to totally fall apart for replacement refs to work beyond Week 4, if in fact they're even on job come Sunday (4 minutes ago from Twitter for Android)





    Take the above for what it's worth... I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed this whole mess will soon be over with.

    The replacements will be working this weekend. The regulars have been out of it since June. New rules have to be briefed, Old rules need to be reemphasized, field mechanics have to have been gone over, there is just too much going on to get these guys up and running so quickly. And with all that personnel and crew assignments have to be made and travel arrangements have to be made.

    Yep, back to normal from Day 1!! :roflmao:

    (I think I will miss, though, all the guys who used to speak of the [regular] refs as though they were
    complete idiots...but recently romanticized them as sages, having had the wisdom of Solomon) :rolleyes:

    The old refs have to get physicals , be fitted for the new Nike unis , ratify the deal by vote. I don't look for them till week 5

    It will be nice to have refs who are at least competent enough not to get fired from the Lingerie Football League. ;)

    Or tomorrow night :) (Browns v. Ravens)

    Any of these things require more than a few hours?
