NFL: No Deal for Refs

Kevin Casey/Getty Images Sport

Many believed the controversial ending of the Monday Night Football game in Seattle would mean an end to the deadlock between the league and the NFL Referees’ Association.

But, even that wasn’t enough for the two sides to come to an agreement.

Negotiators met until 1am CT trying to get something worked out.  But the reports say the owners are not willing to compromise any further and the talks have broken off.

Several issues still remain to be resolved including the desire for pensions for the officials.  The officials work 36 hours a week and the pension is a big issue for them.  Estimates are it would cost the owners about $100,00o per team to get that done.

The sides are expected to communicate again today.
