As a fan I loved the result. Greenbay fans had no problem when they won a playoff game against the Baltimore Colts.
Don Chandler missed the field goal so bad, that the next year the NFL put those extensions on the goal posts.

But saint Vince never said a word in protest. Green Bay deserved to lose as they played poorly.

Now we can go back to having the refs make the wrong call much more quickly!!

The upshot of it all: NeonDice upon hearing of the strike settlement tweeted: Good, Now We Can Go Back To Being Angry At The Real Referees.

Hockey " It's the fourth place sport in a lot of markets"

NFL referees are 4 lowest paid of the 4 major sports.



When you only work one day a week and the other people work 4-6 that will happen.

Excellent!

Now we can more accurately "chart" the refs and determine when and where the FIX will come in.

I love this game so ...

At an average of $9,000 per game NFL refs are not the lowest paid. My guess is that's the highest per game pay for any event other than maybe a huge boxing match (back in the day when boxing was big).

Then FOOTBALL players are grossly overpaid. Besides, when is the last time people were screaming about a call in Hockey ?

Ooops , scratch that last thought. I was thinking of televised sports. Or ones where anybody cared, EH !
