RT @nfl345: NFL, NFLRA Reach Eight-Year Agreement tinyurl.com/bq8beq5I didn't think the owners had any shame left, and that they were content to let the replacement refs screw things up until the owners broke the union. However, after everyone, except for this guy, watched a game winning INT become a game winning TD, Twitter exploded as T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton became stars of the internet, and everyone turned on Sportscenter to see WTF just happened, the NFL owners finally agreed to a reasonable offer that they could have made months ago.

I'm sure the referees were asking for too much at times, and both sides had a lot of pride involved, but the owners were the ones who needed to make a deal now so I would guess that most of the final concessions came from them.
Unfortunately, this won't bring a win back to Green Bay and the Packers are stuck on 1-2 instead of 2-1. But at least we'll always have this video.
