Peter King reported last night that the league and the officials met yesterday for several hours, but that talks broke off late in the afternoon with no planned talks scheduled.  He said that they're still far apart on two key issues, one being the $3M in pension for the refs, which the NFL is balking at.

All of this is on Goodell and the league now. 

To be fair, I bet the NFL would drop the pension request, IF the refs would allow them to implement their system of having the next generation of refs ready

Those are the two main issues, and both sides refuse to drop those two issues
