Steratore heads crew on 20-hours’ notice

Gene Steratore begins his 10th season in the NFL tonight as he marks the triumphant return of the regular NFL officials. The lockout of the current referees was lifted just before midnight Wednesday, with a tentative collective bargaining agreement.

Steratore’s last game was the AFC divisional playoff between the Broncos and Patriots (see our game coverage here).

Tonight’s officiating lineup:

R 114 Gene Steratore 10th year (7th as referee)
U 129 Bill Schuster 13th year
HL 106 Wayne Mackie 6th year
LJ 45 Jeff Seeman 11th year
FJ 25 Bob Waggoner 16th year
SJ 58 Jimmy DeBell 4th year
BJ 12 Greg Steed 10th year
Replay Larry Nemmers

Schuster, Mackie, and Waggoner are from Steratore’s 2011 crew.

The remainder of the assignments will likely be known Friday or Saturday. Because of the quick turnaround, we expect some of the information to come slowly.

  1. Makes sense they send Steratore to the game since he is from the Philadelphia area so it’s an easy trip to Baltimore. I wonder if the other guys are local? If so this could be a made up crew for this week and not his crew for the season.
