officials, owners going nowhere
NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL
and its locked-out officials got
nowhere in negotiations Yesterday,
despite facing a midweek deadline to
reach a deal or go into the regular
9dason with the replacements who
worked last week's exhibition games.
fter saying last weekend that
there was a good chance of a deal,
hopes seemed to be fading. Both
sides will meet again today.
Tom Condon, the chief negotiator
for NFL Referees Association,
would not even describe yesterday's
talks as "negotiations" between two
sjdes that are from 50-75 percent
amart in their salary proposals.
The same opinion came from the
4'm not optimistic because of
haw far apart I know we are," Dallas
owjger Jerry Jones said yesterday.
"I'm disappointed, but I'm also very
pleased with how the officials that
are coming in performed this past
weekend. We've had a chance as a
league to review each performance
and overall it was outstanding."
Jeff Pash, the chief negotiator for
the NFL, said Sunday that unless
there was a deal in place by "late
today or early tomorrow,' the
league would continue the lockout.
Officials would have to know by
then what games they were to do and
make travel plans.
The NFL also canceled its annual
meeting of referees, downfield offi-
cials (field jndges, side judges and
back judges) and replay officials,
scheduled for Friday in Dallas. That
meeting always has been held two
days before the season opens.
High-ranking NFL executives,
speaking on the condition of
anonymity, also have said if there
was no agreement by the start of the
regular season, the lockout was like-
ly to continue well into the season.
The replacement officials already
have been guaranteed $2,000 a game
for four games, regardless of
whether they work them or not.
Perhaps the pessimism is a favor.
For two weeks, negotiators have
been saying they were optimistic
about reaching an agreement. That's
been particularly true of Condon,
who has said most negotiations come
down to the last minute.
The NFL has said it won't add to
its offer that would double the
salaries of most officials by 2003.
The union counters that its demand,
are justified because the official
have been working for the sam(
salary since 1994.
The two sides also use "apples anc
oranges" numbers to boost theii
The union claims that its official,
make far less annually than official,
in baseball, the NBA and the NHL.
But the NFL notes that NFL official,
