The ramifications of the replacement referees continue to effect people around the league on and off the field.

When the Broncos faced the Atlanta Falcons, there were areas of the game where the officiating could be put into question. Several times throughout the nationally televised game, Head Coach John Fox and Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio could be seen giving their thoughts to officials on calls that they disagreed with.

The NFL today announced the fines for both coaches. John Fox received a fine of $30,000 and Del Rio was hit with a $25,000 fine.

According to an ESPN report, the league called the Georgia Dome to inform the Broncos coaches to ease off.

According to reports, both sides talked yesterday but little progress was made. That being said, at least they are talking and any progress is good progress.
