NFL says lockout of officials has begun
Posted by Mike Florio on June 4, 2012, 2:56 PM EDT

If it wasn’t clear given the circumstances, it’s clear now: The NFL has locked out its game officials.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello informs PFT that the lockout has commenced. ”They advised us in March of their intention to take a strike vote and their plans to drag out the negotiations until late summer,” Aiello said.

By taking the initiative, the NFL can proceed with plans for identifying and training replacements, without being backed into a corner by a late-August walkout.

The effort to line up replacements also clarifies something about which there was some speculation during the player lockout last year. Even if the work stoppage is initiated by the employer, the employer can hire replacements.

Here's an idea... just fire them all and find some competent, full-time ones to replace them. It couldn't possibly be any worse.

The past, the present, and the future walked into a bar. It was tense.
