NFL replacement officials

ROUNDUP ON REF-GATE

Now that an agreement is in place, see how the replacement official fiasco blew up and was finally solved.

Shanahan was whistled for unsportsmanlike conduct for berating officials in the final seconds of the Redskins' 38-31 loss Sunday. He also confronted an official in a stadium tunnel after the game.

The son of head coach Mike Shanahan explained his actions in a statement on Monday, saying he was upset that officials were about to misapply the 10-second runoff rule and not allow the Redskins a chance to run a final play. He vowed to handle such situations better in the future.

The NFL is using replacement officials after locking out the regular officials in a labor dispute.
