NFL, Locked Out Refs Meet Saturday, Make No Progress

As the battle between the NFL Referees Association and the NFL continues on, the league is set to use replacement refs when the season officially kicks off next weekend. Both sides met on Saturday according to Jason LaCanfora, NFL Insider for CBS and CBSSports.com, but it appears that no progress has been made to end the lockout:

The labor issues began on May 31st, once the CBA expired and has raged on for the last three months with no apparent end in site. According to LaCanfora, however, the NFLRA says they are still open to negotiating with the league.
