As @mortreport is reporting, an agreement between NFL and NFLRA is at hand and both sides will work to have officials working this weekend.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 26, 2012Welp, looks like I was wrong. Apparently the league started to get scared that it was turning into the WWE and people were going to stop watching. I think the biggest thing that scared them, was that people were starting to not want to bet on the NFL, and when you lose the betting interest, you lose a lot of the casual fan interest. We are still waiting on details to come out on the agreement, and we will be able to tell who folded when this came out. If the officials got pensions, they won. If not, the NFL won another lockout (after winning the one against the players). All in all, we can all be happy that the regular refs can be back. Too bad they weren't back for the Ravens game so the Patriots could be 2-1. As always, follow me @CultOfBelichick
