After four pre-season games and three regular season games, the NFL Officials Lockout is finally over. Both sides have reached a new eight year labor agreement. Commissioner, Roger Goodell has lifted the lock out so that referees can get back to work immediately, starting with tonight's Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens game.
Technically, the new agreement is not yet official. The agreement still needs to be voted on, which will happen either Friday or Saturday, however the NFL certainly can not afford another episode like the Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks Monday Night Football Game that ended on a controversial call that was seen by millions of viewers and sparked an enormous amount of outrage from fans and commentators.
