Locked-out officials want paid for missed time

The good news is that, according to Jay Glazer of FOX, the NFL and the locked-out officials will talk early this week to try (key word: try) to solve the labor dispute.

The bad news is that, according to Jay Glazer of FOX, there’s a new issue between the two sides.

Per Glazer, the locked-out officials want to be paid for the weeks they missed.

With three weeks in and with the 121 officials making on average $5,500 per game, that’s $665,500 per week.  Which equates through three weeks to nearly $2 million.

Which means there’s another $2 million between these two sides.

Which means the replacements should keep washing their uniforms every Tuesday.
