Owners can't agree on opening books

Posted on: March 10, 2011 11:40 am
There is just one day left before a possible NFL Armageddon and a crucial event has happened within the past 24 hours.

There are some NFL owners who want to completely open the league's financial books to the union, has learned.

The problem is other NFL owners are refusing.

So the stalling in the talks has happened because one set of owners desires to open their books and others do not, a source explains. Thus ownership is stuck trying to find a way to mend these differences.

If ownership can, and the books are opened, a deal could likely be reached quite quickly.

That's where we are now. Ownership is arguing amongst itself.

Incredible, isn't it?

It's virtually impossible for ownership to reach a consensus on this issue by the Friday evening deadline so unless another extension is agreed upon, the lockout/decertification will happen then.

This is getting interesting. Right down to the wire.

Have you ever actually imagined about which incorporates a tad bit loads much more than just your material items? I always suggest, that which you say is important and all sorts of points.

Well then why are books kept in the first place.

They are kept because it is mandated by the IRS, because it tells the owners/executives if the company is profitable.
They are not kept for parties with out legal standing to demand seeing them.

I work in finance and read the statistics from economists.  I don't enjoy seeing people suffer and think that all the poor are lazy or all the rich are greedy.  This country has too many people who feel they are entitled to stuff they don't have to work for.  A fair tax code and doing away with entitlement programs will go along way to getting rid of class warfare and racial prejudice to bring our nation together.  As we did after WWII we have to reinvent ourselves as the leaders in new industries.  Let everyone get in on the action.  Margaret Thatcher said it best  "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money [to spend]."

You really believe the wealthy don't pay any taxes?  Your probably the idiot I say protesting at the capital with a sign blaming Wall Street not the unions.  The top 1% pay over 40% of all taxes.  Look back in history at the last presidents that tried to raise taxes on the wealthy.  The economies of the 1930's and 70's didn't work so well.  In fact what the IRS thought they would collect, turned out to be less than what they had before they enacted the tax increase.  The wealthy will find other places to put their money to avoid taxes, spend less on their companies (no job little guy) and give less to charities.  The little guy got stuck with higher taxes on this strategy.  The tax code will get a major overhall to start paying off our 11 trillion debt.  We can't kick the can down the road like Europe which is getting closer to imploding.  Greek and Irish bond spreads have increased over the last week and Spain's debt got a downgrade.  The new tax structure needs to get rid of entitlements for rich and poor.  How does a guy making 12k a year get a 6k tax return.  Why do minorities qualify for discounted child services?  The rest of the money is pay off the debt is going to come from social security cuts and medicare.  Expect a value added tax if you want services to stay the same.  If Obama had a brain he'd start creating jobs by having us drill and export our natural gas.  We have 3x what Saudia Arabia has in oil.  Good jobs, more tax revenue and a chance to expand the middle class.

ANOTHER WAY OF SAYING THIS WOULD BE..."Even the lower tier football players get 200-500K in salary, to shorten their lives, lower their quality of living post retirement, and risk serious injury or worse on a weekly basis."

then don't play... go to wal mart or a factory or the coal mines...  like the rest of us and get 10 to 15 an hour... its simple really..

 John Dimitri,   I'm noy saying  obama didn't come in with those problems you mentioned but he has added more debt in a 2 year period than any other president has in 4 years by far.Not even close. No things were not fine before but remember that the democrazies held both the congress and the senate and would not barely pass anything. You must watch regular tv news which is basically ran by the lobbyists and does not tell you the true story. They twist around everything on those stations. Obama should have never even been able to run for president,his own grandma says he was born in africa. Your an idiot if you think obama is a honest and good president. You must want the usa to be ran by muslim radicals with terroist ties. Don't write back ,your name tells me everything i need to know.

It's a private company, the players should get bent.  The owners take the risk of filling the stadium. 
Keep the season at 16 games.  Cap the first year of contracts on rookies and use that money on other crap holding up the cba.
