A person familiar with the negotiations says the NFL and its locked-out officials have met the last two days but still remain far apart in settling their dispute.

The person briefed The Associated Press on Friday, requesting anonymity because the negotiations are intended to remain private.

The person added in the email that no progress has been made and no further talks are scheduled.

The NFL locked out the regular officials in June and has been using replacement officials as the season enters its third full weekend. Many players, coaches and fans have been upset with what they say is poor officiating. The NFL has warned teams that it won't tolerate confrontational behavior toward replacement officials.
