A quick look at Twitter this morning is all the indication that one needs to know that Sunday wasn’t the National Football League’s greatest day. I saw my share of officiating tomfoolery while attending the Titans/Lions game, but the criticism is widespread throughout the league.

According to the Associated Press (via ESPN), the league and the locked out officials met on Sunday, but there’s not much in the way of word on progress between the two parties as they try to reach a new collective bargaining agreement.

Meanwhile, teams and fans alike continue to express outrage by some of the calls being made. Here’s a small sampling of what you can expect to find on Twitter, regarding the issue:

    It’s hard for me to sympathize with the striking refs. They average 150K a year. If I made that I’d go to work early every day.
