I agree that the regular refs are overall better, but id be willing to bet there were individual replacement guys better than some of the regular refs. But of course you never hear about refs doing a good job. Only when the negative stuff happens do you hear about refs.

Yes. Not only in the playcalling but in their controlling of the players, coaches,and pace of the game. The replacements got steamrolled.

They did and will continue to make bad calls and missed calls but not on nearly the scale as the replacements.

At least with penalties within the game, the regular refs are relatively consistent.

The replacements were so inconsistent as to what was a penalty, such as with pass interference especially, it wasn't even funny.

Cold water being dashed on reports of NFL-NFLRA agreement

As if on cue, the brake-pumping has begun.

With the first wave of reports that a deal between the NFL and locked-out officials was close, next comes the wave of reports saying “Not so fast.”

Sports Illustrated’s Peter King just tweeted (https://twitter.com/SI_PeterKing/statuses/251006528725868544): “NFLRA negotiator Scott Green has notified officials that a deal is not imminent.”

That dovetails with the NFL Network’s Albert Breer’s report this morning, which acknowledged progress but noted substantial differences (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000066367/article/nfl-nflra-come-to-agreement-on-issue-of-backup-officials) on the pension issue.
Perhaps the truest words of the last hour were uttered by NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, who also took to Twitter.

“Having done this before (https://twitter.com/DeSmithNFLPA/statuses/251004655000240128), everyone needs to wait until the ink is dry.”

Again, all signs point toward this thing being finished, and perhaps soon. Our long, national nightmare is almost over.

But as we approach the finish line, the urge to mark territory runs strong in the media, and sometimes needs to be curbed.

nope, for the next 2/3 weeks the announcers will use 'still training camp' or 'knocking off the rust' and the leagues own fault, for any mistakes that are made. After that they will go back to rationalizing and ignoring them like they did before.

It's what irritated me the most ... at best there was a double standard, if not an agenda, behind the treatment of the replacement refs that clearly escalated the problems.

Maybe it was just typical media wanting to report 'the dirt' but then again there are a ton of ex-players and pro union type guys reporting on stuff that would have a bias towards helping the NFLRA.

They would have probably improved significantly by next season, but what do you do about games like Monday night until then?

The regular refs missed some calls absolutely. The replacement refs were making bad enough calls that it was bringing the integrity of the game into question. HUGE difference there.
The regular refs were/are bias. The replacements would become biased in a matter of time. Keep in mind this is the "Manning Football League", "New England Patriots Football League" or "Brady Football League". Whatever you want to call it. They will protect the future profitability of this league.

I can tell you many that the regulars would get right that the replacements wouldn't.

This I would agree.

They really need an overhaul. There are some bad officials out there.

If they want to protect the integerity of the game with the better regular officials, wouldnt you think they would want to put a quality product on the field as well?

Hochuli and his crew have had a couple of major screwups, but the thing that irritates the hell out of me about him is the way they'll call a thousand meaningless holds on plays 100 yards away from the game action that have no impact on the play, while failing to ever call takedowns on O-Lineman who are about to get raped by pass rushers.

I totally get some people's complaints, and think they have a lot of validity, but are so much better than the replacements.

Aiello on NFLRA talks: “There is no such thing as close” (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/09/26/aiello-on-nflra-talks-there-is-no-such-thing-as-close/)

Posted by Mike Florio on September 26, 2012, 2:45 PM EDT

Earlier today, ESPN reported that a deal between the NFL and the NFL Referees Association is “at hand,” and that the real officials could be back to work this week.

Asked about the situation, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello quoted George Young, the late Giants G.M., with this admonition regarding negotiations: “There is no such thing as close.”

So there’s no deal until there’s a deal. And, as of right now, there’s no deal.

Confirming that there’s no deal is NBC officiating consultant Jim Daopoulos, who told PFT by phone this afternoon that NFLRA president Scott Green emailed the rank-and-file from the meeting room with the explanation that a deal has not been struck.

Even if/when a deal is reached among the negotiators, it will have to be approved by at least half of the 121 officials. As Daopoulos explained, the officials badly want to return to work, which could make them likely to accept whatever deal the NFLRA presents to them for a vote.

Still, questions remain. Dapoulos explained that, as to the reportedly tentative agreement to maintain a 21-official developmental squad that won’t be used during a given season to “bench” the regular officials, the officials want to know how the group will be assembled, what they will be doing during the season, and (perhaps most importantly) how they’ll be paid.

And while roughly 85 to 100 of the officials engage in a weekly conference call arranged by Ed Hochuli to discuss rule changes and other officiating issues in order to remain ready to work, Daopoulos explained that, as to roughly 20 of the locked-out officials, there’s real concern regarding their ability to pass a physical.

Then there’s the question of using replacements for a Thursday night game and regular officials for the balance of the weekend. Daopoulos said that the league likely will prefer an all-or-none approach, for reasons of competitive balance. if, for example, the Ravens lose to the Browns on a bad call from the replacements, the Ravens would be able to legitimately complain that, if they’d been scheduled to play on Sunday, they would have had the benefit of the real officials.

Regardless, no one will have the regular officials until a deal is done. And a deal isn’t done — and won’t be done — until it’s done.

I agree, no doubt about it. So we have a few of those issues, in a VERY large sample size.

Each of the regular crews have a certain part of the game that they seem focus.

Ed Hochuli and his crew call more non-critical holds away from the play than any other, by far.

None of the regular crews call obvious holds in the pass rush.

At least change the result to a tie.

I know the Calvin Johnson end zone catch was really controversial, so Lions fans (and many others) might disagree, but I think Steratore might be the best ref these days.

I think Hochuli is a bit ridiculous posing for the camera, but he's a solid ref.

NFL, referees' union agree to end lockout

By Albert Breer
Reporter, NFL.com and NFL Network

The NFL reached an agreement with the NFL Referees Association late Wednesday to end the referee lockout and the two sides are working on the paperwork now, according to a league source.

The league later confirmed the agreement.

A high-ranked referee told NFL.com and NFL Network's Jeff Darlington earlier that the officials are prepared to immediately begin work, noting he and many others have gotten access to all of the videos from the last three weeks of games that were distributed to the replacement officials.

While the referee said his colleagues would have liked to work a few preseason games, he says it isn't necessary to do their job.

Earlier Wednesday, the league and referees agreed to create a developmental program as a compromise to the NFL's demand for the addition of 21 officials to the current contingent of 121 NFLRA members, per an NFLRA source. The pool of money for the existing officials also will remain the same.

The developmental officials will be mentored by the existing crews and will be assigned to work with them during the week. The developmental officials will not be NFLRA members, will not work games and will not be eligible to be subbed in initially.

But eventually, as they improve and reach the standards to be NFL officials, they will be considered for NFLRA membership. As that happens, the financial pool for officials will be adjusted accordingly.
