ESPN says the NFL and the NFL Referees Association reached a tentative agreement late Wednesday night on an eight-year collective bargaining agreement that will end the referee lockout.
Vegas oddsmakers were worried about the NFL's replacement refs. Jay Kornegay, vice president of race and sports book operation at The Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, says, "Controversy is just not good for our business, ''When you are taking wagers on any event, you want it black or white. You don't want any gray areas. America loves football and loves betting on football.''
And I am personally happy because now I can go back to being upset with the regular ref calls.....those I am used to and I feel comfortable with them. And now we know they they could be 'worse'.
By the way, Foot Locker released a statement saying, "Despite recent allegations, our employees have spent the last few weeks at our stores and not at NFL games."
