    The NFL knows that they have the leverage they are not going to budge over last night your right they cannot just give in cause of what happened....they are negotiating and have to make sure both sides are happy. Even if the old refs and the NFL came to a deal it still would take at least 2 weeks for the old refs to come back that is week 5.

    The regular refs should get paid and be on the field Thursday. Stop being cheap and pay up. The NFL makes BILLIONS every year. Pay the refs. I also disagree that teams are just making excuses and they should be prepared. Just because the refs are bad for both teams doesn't make it right.

    If the world was as simple as "You have enough money, give me some!"... we would be living in Cuba. China. 21st century Russia.

    You get the point...the US, especially the NFL is not a socialistic operation, nor should it be.

    I'm not saying that I am enjoying this. I would rather have the old referees back, but at what expense?

    That said, you have to admit the end of last nights game was pure pandemonium. excitement. thrilling. I enjoyed it...
    (now replace GB with NYG and i would have took a dump in the middle of the road last night)

    I have no idea what that means. They have more than enough money to pay these guys and the product is better because of them. Consider it an investment. Pay the regular refs. The game is much better with them.

    The old refs want 6 figures and work only 1/3 of the year. And as a poster stated, a pension. This is laughable. How many people can say they can do this with their current employer?

    the NFL can't just give in they have to do what is best for them too whether we think it is wrong or not. Parcells is just saying teams need to adjust for the mean time and stop having the built in excuses before they play a down in the game.

    This is yet another case of capitalism completely ruining everything it touches.

    The NFL reduced the pensions of their FULL-TIME employees league-wide. The officials are the only ones demanding special treatment to leave their pensions alone...yet they're only PART-TIMERS. (How is that fair to the rest of the league employees?)

    They're asking for too much and Goodell isn't gonna budge. Not now...not ever. It'd set a bad precedent, and the NFL's still got all the leverage.

    Yeah, these replacements are a freaking dumpster fire (Obviously.)

    But hook any NFL fan up to a lie detector and ask if they'll stop watching b/c of horrible officiating. Yeah...end of story.
