NFL, referees halt talks after attacks
NEW YORK (AP) -- No talks are scheduled in the near future in the dispute between the NFL and its locked-out officials.
Replacement officials are scheduled to work this weekend's games, the second week of the regular season and the third week with replacement officials.
The NFL closed its offices Tuesday after the terrorist attacks on the Word Trade Center.
Negotiators for the sides met Monday but both NFL spokesman Greg Aiello and union negotiator Tom Condon said they were too far apart to resume talks.
Last week, the NFL retracted its offer of a 60 percent increase in the first year and is now offering a 20 percent increase this season. The officials are seeking doubled to tripled salaries immediately.
