Fantastic news. And it looks like the NFL got what they needed to get out of this deal.

Um the NFL are the owners ?
If the owners didn't want this deal it wouldn't get done.

Judging by the mass praising of the real refs after this weekend I presume we're not going to see any complaints on here about bad calls next weekend ?

Apart from the mortreport tweet I see nothing confirming it for this weekend only that it looks like a deal will be done but nothing definite yet.


OK, badly phrased. Did the owners cave because of the publicity or because the product on the field was suffering to the degree it was?

I'm sure the Pack ownership group would have wanted to get the deal done after MNF for example. I wonder how many of the owners care enough about football to sacrifice some money for the quality of the game.


My guess would be that the NFL caved because they saw the damage their brand was taking at the hands of the games/public backlash and decided that the hit taken from this backlash would be financially more than it would be to just meet in the middle with the refs. It always comes down to money, and they likely finally saw that they stood to lose more by continuing to hold out than they would be agreeing to a deal.


Yep.
They definitely wouldn't do it because it was "Protecting the Shield".
As soon as they get a sniff it could hurt them where they care then they do a deal.

Still seen no announcement that it is happening though.

Yes but they will be the best of the best scabs!! Wink


I've said from the jump that this would not get resolved until either
A: a major injury occurred with a super star
or
B: The faces of the NFL start to lose NFL games and complain.

The NFL can not have Brees and Rodgers blasting them in the media for all to hear. No disrespect intended but had this been in a untelevised game with two of the how shall we say less successful type franchises and not the all mighty Packers and Rodgers, this isn't resolved today!! It's unfortunate that a team had to lose a regular season game that might have implications down the road for both franchises good or bad. Home field or WC making or not making the playoffs for others. However this was always the end game for the owners to concede. Jerry can talk smack all he wants about "only the losing teams complaining" had that been America's Team he would have been in an uproar. Funny thing is going to be that the Real refs have had no Preseason, Training camp ,mini camps to get back into the swing of things and might struggle the first 2 weeks as well. Rolling Eyes

But if everyone still watches, are they really losing any money because of the scab referees?

Atleast now the ball can be spotted correctly. Those replacements were horrible at spotting balls thats the big thing I noticed about them.

It's not just people watching though be it on TV.Its the sponsors of the NFL and the advertisers who advertise during games.
That is where the real money comes from.

Btw...they are not signaling touchdown. They are in the process of waving their arms for touchback.

I can't be the only one who watched that game having very little vested interest in either team, saw what happened, and had a sick sad feeling. It was difficult to watch something I really care about being reduced to such incompetency. Something I loved was getting tarnished throughout all this. Sure I'd still watch games, but I would go so far as to guess that at least a solid majority of owners are fans of the sport; even when you own and run a business, you care about it. That has to have played a factor.

Damage done already though, this is happening at least one week too late.
