NFL, officials come to agreement

Posted by Duke Bobber on September 26, 2012 – 11:20 pm

Joint statement from NFL and NFLRA

The NFL and NFLRA are pleased to announce that they have reached an agreement tonight on an eight-year collective bargaining agreement, subject to ratification by the NFLRA.

“Our officials will be back on the field starting tomorrow night,” Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “We appreciate the commitment of the NFLRA in working through the issues to reach this important agreement.”

“Our Board of Directors has unanimously approved taking this proposed CBA to the membership for a ratification vote,” said Scott Green, president of the NFLRA. “We are glad to be getting back on the field for this week’s games.”

Press Release

The NFL and the NFL Referees Association agreed tonight to the terms of a new eight-year collective bargaining agreement that will return the game officials to the field for this weekend’s games, beginning with Thursday night’s Cleveland at Baltimore game.

The agreement, the longest with the game officials in NFL history, was reached in New York between the negotiating teams for the NFL and the NFLRA with the assistance of Scot Beckenbaugh and Peter Donatello of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. The agreement must be ratified by the NFLRA membership. Under the commissioner’s authority, Commissioner Goodell can enter into this agreement without a vote of the NFL clubs.

Commissioner Goodell temporarily lifted the lockout so that the officials can work Thursday night’s Cleveland at Baltimore game prior to their ratification vote. The officials will meet Friday and Saturday to vote on the agreement.  If it is approved, a clinic for the officials will be held following the vote.

“The long-term future of our game requires that we seek improvement in every area, including officiating,” Commissioner Goodell said. “This agreement supports long-term reforms that will make officiating better. The teams, players and fans want and deserve both consistency and quality in officiating.”

“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. Now it’s time to put the focus back on the teams and players where it belongs.”

The agreement includes the following key terms:

- Eight-year term covering the 2012-2019 seasons.

- The current defined benefit pension plan will remain in place for current officials through the 2016 season (or until the official earns 20 years of service). The defined benefit plan will then be frozen.

- Retirement benefits will be provided for new hires, and for all officials beginning in 2017, through a defined contribution arrangement, which will have two elements:  an annual league contribution made on behalf of each game official that will begin with an average of more than $18,000 per official and increase to more than $23,000 per official in 2019, and a partial match on any additional contribution that an official makes to his 401(k) account.

- Apart from their benefit package, the game officials’ compensation will increase from an average of $149,000 a year in 2011 to $173,000 in 2013, rising to $205,000 by 2019.

- Beginning with the 2013 season, the NFL will have the option of hiring a number of officials on a full-time basis to work year-round, including on the field.

- The NFL will have the option to retain additional officials for training and development purposes, and may assign those additional officials to work NFL games. The number of additional officials will be determined by the NFL.

    The NFL will not commit to fully admit the major mistake and change the game result from a Packer loss and Seatle win. Then they should do what a lot of childrens sports league. Then just change it to a tie for both teams so both teams are effected evenly for any playoff effects.

    Its to bad that the commissioner has already shown his complete contempt for the game of football by not awarding Monday nights game to the Green Bay Packers.

    Instead of doing what is right he chose the political move of standing by his replacement Refs obviously bad call.

    I’m very happy that the real Refs are back, but Commissioner Goodell should be gone. His actions have tarnished the reputation of the NFL and insulted the intelligence of all of us, the fans.

    Here it is!! The smallest franchise in the league with a competitive team had to take one on the chin for this to happen!! If I didnt love my pack as much as I do I would say SCREW the NFL, for allowing this to happen and then the arrogance of knowing what happened last monday and backing amateurs on the call.. What a joke!!! The pack will be there when it is all said and done and replacement refs wont be there to screw them.. Thx commish for locking out seasoned pros doing their jobs and costing THE NFL’S Storied franchise a loss because of 3 mil dollars in a 9 billion dollar business!! Your business is actually growing while me “Average Joe Who Loves His Team suffers..!” Joe Montana, Dan Marino, John Elway, Lawrence Taylor.. Fought for the NFL of today.. You ruined 3 weeks of OUR football. Hard earned money that you would NEVER understand!! Thx for coming to an agreement even though you cost at least one team a win!!!

    Well this is a lesson to learn, from any Coporate or owner of any well off establishment or business, that when involving with employees or staff that when a strike is mention, it is a good Idea to shut up, listen and come with a compromise that can keep the workers to keep working who are skilled for the job and or position that are train and experience in the paticular field. It can and will effect others whom are not the primary involvement in the individuals pay and or pension. Green Bay’s team is a victim from the strike, but cause it is early in the season, even though it is a wrong call from the Catch by Jenning’s great effort to end the game with no time on the clock by the interception clearly seen and stated from all fans from the Seahawks to the rest of the Country that Green Bay Won by 12 to 7 cause of touchback in the endzone. Jennings was the only player to have the hands on the ball while the only Seahawk reciever and player in the reach of the ball had his hands on Jennings wrist time of catch til hitting the ground with his knee on the turf to be consider control of ball and down in the endzone for touchback. Cause of time ran out on the clock before the catch the game was over with interception by Green Bay with the score reading 12 to 7. Though the Refs at time on the field and in the booth where not fully experience in the NFL or put it in a better way the Pro’s league had made a call of touchdown and did not have the experience or confidence to turn the ruleing over to the correct call is the reason why the major coporates and business owners need to see why the Strikes are the best effective method to get the full attention on taking care of the back bone employees an staff always, as united as a union, or employees is the true way to fight and defend for our rights as well for what we want to make good pay and benefits. So Green Bay Packer players, coaches, and staff, especially the fans (Cheeseheads) keep your head up and realize the season is early and it is not over and many more games to be played and can be won to be in the playoffs and the Super Bowl for the most Championships in the all time league (13) to be 14 if can shake off the horrible, but never forgotten bad call in 2012 season and or history! This is a Bears fan here and I did not like it either on bad call, but this does take over the bad call in History when Mike Dikta put in the William Fridge Perry for the run touchdown when it should of been the all time great running back Walter Payton Number 34! To Packers keep your heads up and win the next game and drive one, from the Number one fan of NFL and Go; Da Bears! Phlipper

    Lets all not forget that even the “Pro Referees” make plenty of mistakes and haves have been ruined in the past. There is no perfection in refereeing.. Also, I do believe Goddell is a greedy SOB and should be fired. He has done nothing but cause friction and create problems. Ask ANY NFL player if they think he is a good Commissioner, business man, or human being for that matter.. The answer will be NO.. I guess there’s not much more he can do to ruin the league now that the major contracts ar settled but he needs to be replaced. PERIOD. HE’S DONE NOTHING GOOD WHATSOEVER FOR THE GAME OF FOOTBALL.

    I can’t believe the 1st 3 weeks are going to count. If the players held out into the regular season would we have seen replacement players? No. Did we see replacement NBA players when the players were on Strike? No. Do we see replacement NHL players on the ice? NO. So why did we let the NFL STRAIGHT INSULT US withe replacement refs? Didn’t they think we didn’t notice? Just like the time you led us to believe that catch in the end zone was a touchdown on Monday Night? Ok, now you can admit you were wrong now that the replacement refs are gone. Now that you don’t have to support their decisions. Call it like it is an we will forget this happened. It’s ok. Didn’t your mommy always tell you to tell the truth?

    While I agree the Packers won the Monday Night game and Sheilds and the rest of the Packers along with the fans deserve a public apology. There were several bad calls in that game. You can’t blame the Seahawks. They didn’t call the game the refs did. All the blame lays with the refs and the comissioner. While we would all like the win to be reversed or the game to be replayed we know that won’t happen. I believe that it should at least be a tie. The Packers and fans know who really won that game. The Seahawks also know in their heart who won that game. The refs have to live with what they did. While the Packers can hold their heads high and be proud of who they are. Put this in the and get ready for the Saints.

I can think of no calls that the Packers were given and you can’t even compare what minor bs you are thinking after the no-class Seattle hawks displayed and continue to display after being given a pity win by the refs. Every one who has seen that play knows who the real winning team should have been. Even on their worst day in your teams stadium the Packers still would have won that game if not for the worst call ever seen in the history of televised sports.

    If you reverse the outcome of the Seattle- Green Bay game, then you also have to take away the Packers’ playoff victory against the Baltimore Colts. After all, like Lance Armstrong’s ToF victories, the Packers’ bogus win over the Colts happened YEARS ago. The bottom line is this: bad calls happen all the time in the NFL. They will still occur when the regular referees return. Accept the outcome of last week’s game just as you accepted the outcome of the 1965 playoff game.

    I have some problems with the way this all played out this week. #1.The talking heads on the NFL network and their incompetent propaganda they spewed out in defense of a blown call. One of their former players/analyst actually said,”..it’s the Packers fault for letting the game get to that point and allowing the referees to be in the position to make the decision on the outcome of the game. They should have gotten the first down when they were on offense then this would have never happened.” Yeah that would have been nice but what people are forgeting about is it wasn’t just the last play of the game. The Packers got hosed on THREE calls on the Seahawks last drive that would have allowed the Packers to close out the game. Offensive pass interference that was called defensive interference on 3rd and forever, a bogus roughing the passer call on an interception, and the missed offensive interference on the last play. I also want to know why our recievers were being absolutely leveled by the safeties while running their routes 20 yards down field with no call. #2. How incompetent can Phil Luckket be!?!? There is no reason this guy should be in charge of anything involved in an NFL game. He is the most incompetent dope ever to walk onto the field. This guy couldn’t get a coin flip right! They put him in charge of the instant replay???? WTH!!! Then the faceless “status quo” statement put out by the NFL about how they support the replacement refs call. Right is right and wrong is wrong Goodell, when everybody on the face of the earth knows what he right call was and you put your support behind the wrong call you paint yourself as a liar and cheater who is not concerned about the integrity of the game or any sport for that matter. A real person with a backbone and any kind of common sense would have swallowed his pride and put the win in the column of the team who actually won the game. At this point Roger you are no better than Don King and you are an embarassment to all sports.

    Some people need to take a step back see things with a different perspective. Yes the replacements weren’t as good as the regular refs but they were doing the best they could. Everybody acts like the regular refs never blew any calls. It happens. There were bad calls against Green Bay and bad calls against Seattle. What about the PI call against Seattle that shouldn’t have been. Maybe Green Bay wouldn’t have even been up 12 – 7. Not to mention the fact that it was a touchdown catch not an interception. Logically, it was an interception because Jennings seems to have “more” control, but by the rule book it’s a TD. Doesn’t matter who gets their hands on the ball first. All you need is 2 hands on the ball AND 2 feet down (assuming control is maintained). Technically Tate hit the ground before Jennings. Did Jennings have more of the ball, yes, but Tate also had 2 hands on the ball. So they both had 2 hands on it, 2 feet hit the ground, and neither dropped the ball. That’s simultaneous possession. Sucks, but that’s how it’s written. Anybody who doesn’t realize that has a poor understanding of rules and the game of football. I’m not saying the rules are perfect, or that I agree with all them.

    Sorry CSense, but your interpretation of the rules is not correct!!!! Dual possession is when BOTH players CATCH the ball simultaneously (at the same time).

    I’m guessing most of the people here have never read any of the rule book until this incident. There have been countless times where calls seemed correct (possibly even were) but it ends up being a gray area in the rule book. A couple examples for you since you’re blinded by being such “fans”. One incident occurred in 2010 when Calvin Johnson caught what would’ve been a winning a TD against the bears. It wasn’t called a TD though, and the rules were later amended. Another example would the “tuck rule” which came about after the 2002 incident with the Patriots. Brush up on your rules and come back with a little a more evidence rather than blindly following or regurgitating things you’ve heard.

    I feel pity for Wilson, #3, who will be remembered only as the first player to throw a touchdown interception.
    This whole ordeal is a prime example of America’s finest fans and players being taken advantage of by greed hungered mongrals of white-collar corporate sociopaths.
    I believe that Monday night’s game SHOULD be played over with the real refs. If you cannot find any who are willing – I have a few friends of all teams who are more than qualified AND willing.

However NFL knows that was a bad call and when they did the review the whole world knew it was a bad call. This is football, not baseball, and the baseball terminology should had never even been mention. IT WAS AN INTERCEPTION. PACKERS WON, fools. As far as waiting to settle the contract with the refs that should of been done at the end of last season. Can we say procrastination. Maybe we need to replace some of the NFL Officials and I’m not talking refs.
