Sure took them long enough!
No, not the refs, the NFL higher ups! Mainly commissioner Roger Goodell. The lockout is finally over!
At the game between the Cleveland Browns and the Baltimore Ravens, during the pre-game coin toss, the ref turned on his mic, and greeted both team captains, saying:
"Good evening, men. It's good to be back."
The stadium then erupted into loud cheering!
The real refs are back and everyone is excited to finally get back to real, FAIR football!
Woo hoo, real refs!

Check out the video (above) to see how coach Harbaugh tries to play off his misconduct and hear the fans react. Yikes!!

Uh-oh! This certainly isn't going to help any chance they have of reconciling!
