NFL, refs resume talks


NEW YORK (WKOW) -- The Associated Press is reporting that a person familiar with the situation says the NFL and its locked-out officials have resumed contract talks.

According to the report, talks began again Wednesday after both sides met through Monday night, breaking off at 2 a.m. The person with the details spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity and would not characterize the talks.

Negotiations have taken on heightened urgency since the Monday night's primetime game, when a controversial call went against the Packers on the final play of the game, a Hail Mary touchdown pass that gave Seattle a 14-12 win over Green Bay.

Even President Barack Obama has weighed in on the dispute. He tweeted Tuesday that "NFL fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs' lockout is settled soon."
