Ref lockout may last into season

League executives said Monday they now foresee starting the 2012 regular season with replacement officials.

At a time when players are openly criticizing replacement officials and coaches are privately grumbling about them, the NFL and NFL Referees Association are not making any progress towards a new deal, according to sources familiar with the talks.

Economics play a part in the stalemate, but league brass said there are two other issues hanging over and hanging up negotiations.

This is bad how come they can't come to some kind of agreement. The NFL is a 9 billion dollar entity, why can't they hire full time refs. These replacements are gonna f**k up some games just watch and see.
Wonder how many games get blown this season because of a non-call or a blown call

They'll probably f**k us is green bay also.
NFL really looks like dogs**t over this. Pay the refs! That is a HUGE part of this game!!
The refs have sucked ass the last few years anyways. Not a single f**k will be given. The less we see of Ed Hochuli and mike Carey the better.
These replacement refs are terrible. At least the real guys don't take 10 min for a false start penalty.

I can't tell if you're serious.... Have you noticed how much worse these other ones are? Young2Rice is right -- even the smallest fouls take a lot longer to get sorted out. A *lot* of missed holding calls in our game in particular (on both teams).

Half serious, no matter what the refs will suck ass. Replacement or not
Somehow, scab refs allow us to go 19-0.

And then fans from other teams say we only went 19-0 because of the scab refs.

Those haters give Niners motivation to go 19-0 again with the real refs.

The year after we go 19-0 again.
The NFL doesn't like to pay anyone.

This is what I see happening.
They should make a movie for them too
