NEW YORK -- The lockout of Major League Soccers referees has ended following an agreement on a five-year labour contract. Marlon Mack Jersey . The Professional Referee Organization, which manages game officials for the U.S. Soccer Federation and MLS, and the Professional Soccer Referee Association, announced the agreement Thursday. Replacements had been used for the first two weekends of MLS games. The PSRA was certified by the National Labor Relations Board last May to represent referees, assistant referees and fourth officials working MLS games. The sides bargained since July, and the lockout began a day ahead of MLS openers on March 7. The Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service entered talks, and a tentative agreement was reached Tuesday night that was ratified by the union membership and approved by PROs executive board. "First contracts sometimes pose difficult challenges as the parties seek to define the parameters of a new formal relationship," FMCS acting director Scot L. Beckenbaugh said in a statement. The agreement runs until Jan. 15, 2019. Lucas Middlebrook, a PRSA lawyer, said the deal includes "substantially better" compensation and "a number of non-economic work rule protections such as a just-cause standard for certain disciplinary matters and standardization of fitness testing. "In addition, the officials now have a contract protecting important quality-of-life items such as travel standards, vacation time and advance notice of match assignments," he said in an email. Jon Bostic Jersey . Winning more at home probably should be on the list. The Flames look to avoid a fifth defeat in six home games by winning a sixth straight meeting with the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night. Al Woods Jersey . TSNs Farhan Lalji reports the Edmonton Eskimos non-import DT has a workout scheduled with an NFL team next week and isnt expected to sign a deal with any team until then. . The Redskins announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Pittsburgh Steelers roared through a perfect December with the kind of urgency that stoked memories of Super Bowls past. They won their first division title in four years, looking like a team peaking at the right time. The valley came quickly. The team that stumbled to a 30-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night in the AFC wild-card game looked more like the enigmatic work in progress of September. The offensive line struggled to block Baltimores relentless and resurgent front seven. The NFLs second-ranked offence produced three field goals and a touchdown and didnt lead over the final 44 minutes while turning over the ball three times. The defence couldnt contain Joe Flacco when it mattered. And while an 11-5 regular season following consecutive 8-8 years is not to be dismissed, the Steelers still havent won a game in January in four years — and counting. We have a long time to think about this, defensive end Cam Heyward said. And the process wont be pleasant. Pittsburgh struggled to find sustained momentum while team MVP LeVeon Bell watched helplessly with his hyperextended right knee under wraps. The trio of Josh Harris, Dri Archer and Ben Tate — whod been in town for barely 96 hours — found little room against the leagues fourth-ranked run defence, one bolstered by the return of nose tackle Haloti Ngata from a four-game suspension. The Steelers ran for 68 yards, but only 43 came from the running backs. The inability to get anything going on the ground allowed Baltimores piecemeal secondary to drop deep into coverage and keep quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wide receivers Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant in check. The same offence that lit up the Ravens for 43 points in early November finished just one drive in the end zone. For sure we wouldve liked to try to do a lot more on offence, but they pretty much stopped what we were trying to do, Harris said. We just simply didnt make enough plays. On either side of the ball. Pittsburghs secondary helped spark a 4-0 run to the post-season by keeping the ball from going over their heads. Peyton Manning Jersey. While Flacco only made one completion over 23 yards, the Ravens benefited when Steelers cornerbacks who couldnt keep their hands or their helmets to themselves. Pittsburgh was flagged eight times for 114 yards, including three personal fouls and a 32-yard pass interference penalty that set up a Justin Tucker field goal. I think if you watch any NFL team, if they do the things we (did), theres no way theyll win, centre Maurkice Pouncey said. Especially with their quarterback less than perfect. Roethlisberger completed 31 of 45 passes for 334 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. He also left briefly in the final minutes with what he described as a little whiplash in his neck. He returned to throw the pick that would seal Pittsburghs second wild-card loss in four seasons. The two-time Super Bowl winner has now gone six years without a championship ring. Though he set career highs and franchise records in nearly every major statistical category, he also didnt do what the Steelers pay him handsomely to do: produce a winning effort when the field is cut from 32 to 12. That, and not the gaudy numbers he put up during 16 weeks of occasional brilliance, is what will linger. I dont really care about what I did, Roethlisberger said. Im proud of the way this team bounced back from the last two years, got back to the playoffs; obviously didnt end the way we wanted it to. It only ever ends for one team the way they want it to, but Im proud of the way a lot of young guys stepped up. Theyll have to make more significant strides in 2015. Troy Polamalu, James Harrison, Brett Keisel and Ike Taylor are among the veterans whose future remains murky at best. Pittsburgh will deal with that when the time comes. Now theres only frustration over what could have been. The competitor in me doesnt want to end things this way, Harrison said. You never want to end on a loss. You want to go out kissing the Lombardi. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
