    Fuck the NFLRA who gives a shit about these moops. They are part+time employees with lucrative real jobs. I hope the NFL breaks em.

    I don't understand what the NFL is trying to do here. Why are they cheaping out on the refs?
    The NFL is a 9 BILLION dollar a year biz. What the refs are asking for the owners could find under their cushions.
    Nobody thinks this is a big deal now but until some team gets screwed and misses the playoffs by a game and then we'll see.

    The biggest stumbling block is the refs are demanding a pension plan which is rediculous and the NFL wants a few more crews so the current crews will ref less frequently and not make as much money but in that aspect it really is pennies to the NFL.

    THe NFL has been cheaping out on the refs for years and years. All the refs had other jobs during the week. THis is nothing new.

    Every week we were talking about a blown call that the old refs blew anyway. What's the big deal?
