Referee magazine’s “Locked Out” feature, which provides the story of the NFL lockout, replacements and the settlement, is now available in the January 2013 issue and online here.
The story, written by senior editor Jeffrey Stern, provides inside information about the negotiations, news about the replacement officials and details about the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
NFL referee and NFL Referees Association board member Jeff Triplette spoke exclusively to Referee on behalf of the union. Jeff Pash, NFL executive vice president and chief legal counsel, presented the league’s viewpoint. It was one of few interviews he granted.
