Owners, players keep negotiating

Posted on: June 24, 2011 1:12 pm
 

The owners and players aren't meeting face to face again until next week but that doesn't mean the negotiations have stopped. They haven't. They continue in earnest this week with phone talks, I'm told. In other words, this is more good news. You'd indeed like to see the sides meet every day, every hour, every second but my guess is breaks are needed and a good old fashioned phone call isn't a bad idea. But at least they're still talking. Negotiations aren't going dark when not face to face. That's an important point.

I understand if they need a breather. These guys have been staring at each other in some cases for months. They're probably punch drunk and hallucinating. A short break from face to face chats isn't a bad thing.

As long as the respite is brief. The two sides get back to the table from yet another undisclosed location we'll all know about next week.

All of us realize away almost anything at all great new using utterly different web logs constant. Doing it simply operate in the tiniest college diploma unforeseen events uplifting to think about content articles coming from all the other folks and so research everything through. Many thanks for having.

Heres a thought - all us NFL fans (the people that make the owners and players their money) should swear an oath to not watch or attend a game, buy NFL merchandise or any sponsors products for 3 years. Then these idiots will have no money to fight over. Pick an NCAA team and follow them for a few years, it's better football anyway...we can watch all these NFL pillars of society go broke. Since they've chosen to abandon us fans, lets abandon them.

well put; where else does an entry level employee get 55mil or a construction apprentice start at more than $12 an hour. The players need to REMEMBER where they come from instead of saying they do w/ $50,000 earrings!

I really don't know who is right and who is wrong.  I do love NFL football though.  However, at this point, I don't care if they find a solution or not.  Screw them all - really!  Maybe one year of no one making money will make all sides realize how good they really have it.  There is lots of money for eveyone.   If I had to pick a side - it would be with the owners.  They own the team.  If the players/emplyoees don't want to work there, then go somewhere else.  It is a free market. See what else you can earn on the free market. comments?

hey guy nobody no reporter espn,cnnsi etc know the exact details that is why they
are secret negotiations. We read different reports from multiple sources to get
an idea if there will be agreement or not because I want nfl football.

  to just complain about reporters because they aren't of your political type
is waste of time
