NFL refs have made it official, signing a new eight-year contract.
That puts an end to the lockout that brought replacement referees to the field--- and left fans moaning about botched calls.
The refs returned to the field Thursday night after the N-F-L struck a deal with officials.
It was formally ratified this Saturday morning.
The new contract offers a pay bump from $149,000 a year in 2011 to $173,000 in 2013.
The pay will rise to $205,000 by 2019.
