Referees Accuse NFL Of 'Misinformation Campaign'

Things are getting uglier than ever between the NFL and its locked out referees. The NFL Referees Association issued a statement today saying that the league is now involved in a "misinformation campaign" against the locked out officials.

The referees association is denying a claim made by the league and reportedly sent to all 32 NFL teams that a deal had been reached late last week but the referees nixed it.

In its statement, the NFLRA wrote:

"It is unfortunate that the League has resorted to providing false and misleading information to its member teams and the media.

"There was no agreement on Thursday or Friday to do anything other than to meet on Saturday. Any claim that any numbers were agreed to before Saturday is absolutely false."

We already know replacement officials will work Wednesday night's 2012 season opener between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys. At this rate, they might work games for quite a while.
