Owners /refs reach deal!!

Postby tantrix1969 » Wed Sep 26, 2012 10:27 pm

"Jim Daopoulos, a long-time official and supervisor of officials, joined NBC this season. And he tells PFT that the NFL and NFL Referees Association have signed a new deal.

A crew is being assembled to work Thursday night’s game between the Browns and Ravens. Then, on Friday, the officials will travel to Dallas to retrieve their equipment and receive their game assignments for Sunday and Monday, with the same crews working together as last year.

Details are still not clear, but Daopoulos says that the much-debated pension issue was resolved with the current defined-benefit plan remaining in place for five years before switching to a 401(k)-style defined contribution plan.

Also, it’s believed that the deal will cover five more years before this one, which means that we’ll potentially be doing this again in 2018.

UPDATE 10:56 p.m. ET: Daopoulos has provided some more facts. The officials will vote on the deal in Dallas on Friday, at which time it will become final. They’ll then participate in a clinic, and head on Saturday to the game sites. Also, the officials will receive a pay raise of four percent, with 12 guaranteed game checks this year and 19 in subsequent years (including preseason). As to the checks they’ve missed this year, the officials will divvy up $2.5 million."

Finally: NFL, refs announce eight-year deal

The NFL and NFLRA announced that a new collective bargaining agreement has been reached.
The regular officials will return for Thursday night's game between the Browns and Ravens. The two sides finally agreed to an eight-year deal that will see the average ref earn $205,000 per year by 2019. They made $149,000 in 2011. "We look forward to having the finest officials in sports back on the field, and I want to give a special thanks to NFL fans for their passion," said Commissioner Roger Goodell. "Now it's time to put the focus back on the teams and players where it belongs." The deal must be ratified by 51 percent of the union's 121 members, who are scheduled to vote Friday in Dallas.

So, how much of a honeymoon do the real refs get before they start getting beaten up again over calls?

Ed Hoculi reportedly dropped and started doing pushups as soon as he got the news.

No way! Can't be pampering them. I would love it if we could give the refs a standing O to start the game, but when they make mistakes, boo. Its a measure of dis-satisfaction, not disrespect. If there is any good to come of this replacement disaster its that we have a keener understanding for how hard it is to officiate an NFL game.

Will be interesting to see if all the PI and illegal contact that has been rampant suddenly goes away as players realize that Dad is home. And he brought his whistle.
