NFL Referee Lockout Is Over
Posted: 27 September, 2012
UNDATED (AP) - The NFL's regular officials are expected to work tonight's game between the Ravens and Browns after the league and the referees' union reached a tentative contract agreement this morning.
The deal still had to be ratified by the 121 union members, but it should end a labor impasse that began when the officials were locked out in June. Negotiations heated up after a missed call cost the Green Bay Packers a win at Seattle on Monday night.
