    ESPN: Refs reject NBA offer 57-0

    Source: ESPN

    NBA referees voted 57-0 Wednesday night to reject a new labor agreement offer, saying they planned to present a counterproposal to the league Thursday.

    The vote came about an hour before midnight CT at a meeting of the referees outside Chicago. Their labor pact expired Sept. 1, and the prospect of a lockout looms if a new agreement is not in place prior to the start of exhibition games Oct. 1.

    "We are still meeting, we've been here since 4 p.m. and they [the referees] have decided to lock themselves in. They're not leaving, and they've empowered us to get on the phone with the league in the morning to try to make a deal and work something out," lead negotiator Lamell McMorris said.

    McMorris said the league's new proposal was presented earlier Wednesday. The referees deliberated its merits for about 6 hours before the offer was unanimously voted down. McMorris said the NBA had made some movement from its prior offer, but he would not be specific.

    This is exactly like the strike in Toronto during the summer.

    Can you believe they wanted to get paid as much as police officers? Stupid dumbasses.
