New Referee's for 2012 Pre-season games

Referee labor dispute

By June 2012, the league and the NFL Referees Association had not yet come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement, thus failing to resolve a labor dispute. Accordingly, the NFL has locked out the regular NFL game officials, and thus opened the 2012 preseason with replacement referees. The replacements consist of low-level college and high school officials. None will be current Division I college referees since the league wants to protect them from union backlash and to let them continue working their scheduled games during the concurrent college football season.

After being locked out, the NFL Referees Association accused the league of planning to lock them out all along rather than negotiate a new contract. Furthermore, the referees contend that the lockout will jeopardize the safety of the players, and the integrity of the game, citing the fact that none of the replacement officials will come from the top college divisions and thus do not have enough experience to adjust to the speed of the NFL game and enforcing the various players' safety rules. The league has denied these claims, saying that they have negotiated in good faith. Nevertheless the NFL Referees Association filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board, accusing the league of unfair labor practices.

Reacting to the referee labor dispute, the NFL Players Association has expressed concern, saying in a statement, "In 2011, the NFL tasked officials with increased responsibilities in protecting player health and safety, and its search for scabs undermines that important function. Professional athletes require professional referees, and we believe in the NFL Referees Association's trained first responders." Chicago Bears center Roberto Garza told the Chicago Tribune that there is a familiarity with the regular referees on what they will and will not call, and so players "might be able to get away with more" when dealing with the replacement officials.

One of the replacements is Shannon Eastin, the first female to ever officiate an NFL game, but writers such as Darin Gantt of Profootballtalk.com and Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times lamented the fact that she broke this gender barrier as one of the strikebreakers.


Shannon Eastin has become the first woman to officiate an NFL game.

Eastin broke the NFL's on-field gender barrier Thursday night, serving as the line judge for a seven-man crew working a preseason game between the Green Bay Packers and San Diego Chargers.

Wearing No. 27 on the back of her official's uniform, Eastin was dwarfed by the players as she lined up in front of San Diego's sideline and had a camera following nearly every move before the game.

The 42-year-old from Tempe, Ariz., seemed at ease in the spotlight, though, and had at least two players shake her hand right before the opening kickoff.

Eastin is a referee in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, college football's second-highest level, and a 16-year veteran of officiating. She got her NFL shot as a replacement official, among a group taking the place of the regular refs, who are locked out.

And now, she'll have a place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Well, at least her cap will; the one she wore Thursday night is headed to Canton.

Replacement officials are working games for the first time in 11 years. Beginning with six games Thursday, they're scheduled to work 16 games this weekend.

The crew working the Hall of Fame game last Sunday had some shaky moments and the officials at Thursday's game between Buffalo and Washington were booed after muffing a touchback call. That added to Eastin's pressure of being the first woman to officiate an NFL game - in front of millions of viewers, no less, with the game on national TV.

Eastin is no stranger to breaking barriers, though.

A multiple national judo champion as a child, she started officiating high schools games, moved up to colleges and eventually to the MEAC, where she became the first woman to be a crew chief.

Eastin also owns a company called SE Sports Officiating, which trains officials in football and basketball.

Other than her size, Eastin seemed to fit right in before the game, chatting with the other officials, members of the chain crew and a couple of players. Chargers tackle Jeromey Clary and linebacker Antwan Barnes sought her out just before kickoff, shaking her hand and saying a few words before she ran down the sideline for the first time.

Eastin joins a small group of women to crack the officiating ranks at the highest levels of sports.

Violet Palmer, one of Eastin's inspirations, began officiating NBA games in 1997 and is still in the league.

Bernice Gera became the first woman to work in baseball's minor leagues, serving as an umpire in a New York-Penn League game in 1972.

Pam Postema umpired major league spring training games in 1989 and, thanks to a push by commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti, made it up to Triple-A for six seasons. She was fired a few months after Giamatti's death, filed a sex discrimination suit against baseball and settled out of court 5 1/2 years later.

The NFL Referees Association that is locked out said earlier Thursday that Eastin should be barred from working any league games because she once participated in the World Series of Poker. Should she be hired permanently, Eastin would be barred from such events in the future as part of the NFL's gambling policy.

BLACKOUT ????

July 10, 2012

This year, the NFL is allowing teams to lift the local, TV blackout where only 85 percent of the game tickets are sold. But, Ward said teams that agree to that rule also must give up 50 percent of the money from every ticket sold to the NFL's "visiting team pool."

The pool is then split among every NFL team. Teams who have sold-out stadiums, or don't want to take advantage of the new policy, only contribute 34 percent to the pool.

"The club would be out several million dollars over the course of the season, if we agree to the new rule," Ward added.

Currently, the Colts have sold 96 percent of their season tickets leaving roughly 2,000 tickets to be sold. What season tickets aren't sold by the start of the season, Ward believes, will sell-out after they become single-game tickets.

"(Tickets are) selling every day. I don't think we'll be sold-out of season tickets, but I'm confident we'll be sold-out of single-game tickets," Ward said.

There are a few NFL teams that are expected to take advantage of the new rule to allow local, live, TV coverage of their games at the risk of paying extra to the league’s pool. Clubs must notify the NFL of their intentions by Sunday.


The Colts have one of the best stadium deals in the NFL. The team pays just $250,000 a year in rent and the city covers all operating and maintenance expenses at Lucas Oil Stadium.

And Irsay has the balls to tell us hometown Indianapolis Colts Fans that if tickets don't sell, he will have the games BLACKED OUT in Indy!

Irsay has the cushiest stadium deal in the NFL. Taxpayers paid for it, and taxpayers write the checks for the $20 million dollar maintenance fee every year. To tell people who are already paying for the games, even if they aren't buying tickets, that they cannot watch their team on television (even though a game could be mostly sold out) is pretty much Jim Irsay taking a giant, steaming dump on the heads of his fanbase.
