My husband-in-my-head Aaron Rodgers got completely skewed over. I hope they recover.September 25, 2012 at 11:37 am #443713
That Seahawk win might have been funny, if it wasnt so sad. Lol. I had picked a 3-point spread, which was a huge upset, so I cant complain. But really. The Titans, Cinci, KC, all winning against major odds. Among my favorite teams. And SF and NE losing. Go figure.
What a start to the season.September 25, 2012 at 4:35 pm #443714
Reports keep saying that Jennings was the first to touch the ball, but that isn’t the same thing as first to have possession. Either way, don’t care that much – though it was very exciting.September 26, 2012 at 4:36 pm #443715
It is absolutely mandatory that the NFL works out a deal with the regular referees and do it right now. The replacement referees have rendered this NFL season thus far as a complete joke and it is threatening the integrity of the game.
Bring back the regular officials now!!!September 26, 2012 at 9:08 pm #443716

N.F.L. and Referees Union Agree on Deal to End Lockout
The National Football League reached agreement on a new labor deal with its game officials late Wednesday night, ending a lockout that forced unprepared replacement officials onto the field, creating three weeks of botched calls, acute criticism, furious coaches and players, and a blemish – however temporary — on the integrity of the country’s most popular sport.
The agreement came 48 hours after the nadir of the league’s experiment with replacement officials, when an incorrect call on the final play of the Monday night game cost the Green Bay Packers a victory against the Seattle Seahawks. That nationally televised debacle spurred two days of furious and lengthy negotiations against the backdrop of immense public pressure and scorn, most of it directed at the league.
Both sides were so determined to play no more games with replacements that they raced Wednesday night to get officials in place to work this week’s slate. A crew of regular officials will be in Baltimore on Thursday night to work the Ravens’ game against the Cleveland Browns. The members of the officials’ union will gather in Dallas to vote to ratify the contract on Friday, and regular officials will work Sunday’s games.
