NFL reaches deal to end referee lockout

The NFL's regular officials are coming back!
The league and the referees' union have reached a tentative contract agreement following three tumultuous weeks that included several blown calls by replacement officials.
Although the contract must still be ratified by the union's 121 members, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced the officials will be back on the field beginning with tonight's game between the Ravens and Browns.
The contract ends a three-month lockout that led to replacement officials. Negotiations really began to heat up after a missed call cost the Packers a win on a Hail Mary pass in Seattle on Monday night.
We're asking our Facebook fans this morning how they feel about this deal. Are you happy the replacement ref debacle is over?
