No Deal In Sight In NFL Referee Lockout

The NFL and the NFL Referees Association failed to reach a deal to end the NFL Referee lockout after meeting until 2 AM early Wednesday morning.

League owners are not willing to compromise on several issues such as, pensions for the officials,which would cost each team about $100,000, and the process by which the NFL evaluates referees.  The officials work about 36 hours a week and pension benefits have become an important issue.

All of this is coming after the controversial ending in the Seattle Seahawks’ 14-12 victory over the Green Bay Packers.  In that game, the replacement officials said that Seahawks wide receiver, Golden Tate and Packers safety, M.D. Jennings came down with a simultaneous catch and awarded Tate with the touchdown to win the game.

The sides are expected to talk today, although is not clear if it will be face to face or passing information back and forth.
