The fake ref era is over. Wednesday night, the two sides reached accord on an eight-year deal and released a statement announcing the end to the ugliness we've seen for three weeks of football.
Here's the statement:
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 weeks games."
