The lockout could last into the first month of the regular season, according to an ESPN report. Which means that the replacements are here to stay -- at least for the next six weeks or so. But this is about more than negotiating a new contract between the league and its officials. There are other sticking points that appear to be holding things up.

I have enjoyed watching game without a flag every play! No "point of emphesis bullcrap" Let em play!!
I'm surprised the NFL wants the refs to be full-time. Weren't refs asking about this a few years back but now they don't want to be full-time. I'm not sure how you can make a five to six month job full-time. Are they going to be reviewing tapes and doing reports in the offseason? Strange. I really don't care if we have replacement refs, as long as we have football.
