According to NFL.com’s Albert Breer, the NFL and the NFL Referees Association have reached an agreement.
It’s about time. Let’s face it: the replacement referees were out of their league (no pun intended). It’s not entirely their fault – they did they best they could. Unfortunately, their best wasn’t good enough by any stretch of the imagination. They got several calls wrong, culminating with the huge debacle this past Monday night.
The referees will get a standing ovation upon returning. Then, we’ll proceed to berate them for making terrible calls throughout the rest of the season. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
