Not unless the union de-certifies itself.

Okay, yes technically an employer cannot fire workers whom they've locked out. Rather, the NFL will not have to make any compromises at all to get a new agreement.

True.

I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually bring in a mediator.

They might not be able to fire them, but they also don't have to assign them to any games.

I would guess that wouldn't work either as it would amount to firing them.

The officials in the GB-Chicago game must be shills for the NFLRA, especially the white hat. If there was no precedent for someone other than the Referee making the mike announcements, last nights game was reason enough to set one. That was horrendous. Nothing like hearing on the PA - "First down! No, wait. Um... Third? Yeah. 5 yard penalty, repeat third down ... ... ... right?"

Yeah, nothing says "over my head" like bad mic technique.

REPLY: I love this quote from the article. Clearly, the coach knew what he was saying, but the reporter had no clue: "Colts coach Chuck Pagano said, 'They got a big play on us off a deep P.I. penalty that was questionable.'"

REPLY: You're right. The one you're referring to is Sarah Thomas, and I hear that the NFL is keeping a close eye on her right now. She's currently working in C-USA and worked the 2009 Little Caesar's Bowl (OK...so it wasn't the Rose Bowl). She's got some good credentials.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sarah last spring at a clinic. Personally, I can't wait to see her on an NFL sideline.

She is probably going to be the regular NFL official to work in the NFL. Time will tell but I would love to see it happen if she is really that good.

Local MN columnist joins in with the replacement-ref bashing:

The real problem with the replacement refs isn't that one of them might wear a Saints shirt.

The real problem with the replacement refs is they haven't earned the right to wear Hochuli's.
Amen.
