The NFL Owners must negotiate more favorably to the locked out NFL Referees. The first two weeks of the season (and 4 pre-season weeks) have shown the fans, the players, and anyone with a brain just how important these referees are. The game is fast and demands experienced and intelligent referees to protect the safety of the players and produce a fair game for the opposing teams, fans, and (more importantly to you) advertisers. The NFL is producing an inferior product due to the replacement referees, and the owners are sacrificing their players' safety and the integrity of the game for greed. Maybe the referees are asking for too much in your eyes. But to the fans, players, and to the game, they are worth far more.
