    so says Mort on Mort Report, so says about 80 trillion tweets I've seen in the last hour.
    I can't find a link on it yet. Anyone?

    I predicted yesterday that Monday's fiasco would serve a purpose. Real refs would be back

    But later reports indicate maybe not? I just don't know what to believe anymore.

    Mort story posted three minutes ago say it's close.

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8427652/locked-nfl-referees-return-early-week-sources

    The NFL and the NFL Referees Association made enough progress in negotiations Tuesday night that the possibility of the locked-out officials returning in time to work this week's games has been discussed, according to sources on both sides.

    An agreement in principle is at hand, according to one source familiar to talks, although NFL owners have postured with a "no more compromise" stance.

    I'm out. I won't ever watch another game until the replacement refs are brought back.

    That's just citing the ESPN report, which says an agreement is close.

    All that does is link back to Mort's story.
