Players still working

The finish line remains in sight and no vote came on Wednesday to approve the CBA but the deal will still get done.

One high ranking player source explained to me there are still "unresolved issues" that prevented players from voting. He would not say what those issues are. The player also said that as of late Wednesday afternoon there was no final CBA to approve.

Another player source said that while at times the meeting was spirited the main reason there was no vote was simply due to the massive volume of information they are reading. The new CBA is a complicated document that takes time to digest. The players simply need more time to examine all of the issues.

One of the player sources did explain -- as I've previously reported -- it's very possible no vote comes until Friday.

But my guess is both the owners and players ratify the CBA on Thursday.

So Christmas might come early.

"Also"?  That's a curious way of putting it.  OBVIOUSLY if there's no final collective bargaining agreement ("CBA") to approve it prevents the players from voting on it, right?  (What else would they have been voting on that we need concern ourselves with?  The terms on which other players than the ones voting should be settling their lawsuit?  Hah!)  That's what's called "burying the lead".
the main reason there was no vote was simply due to the massive volume of information they are reading.
That can't be right, can it?  Isn't the reason the fact that there's no CBA yet, as stated elsewhere in the story?  If there's no negotiated agreement, then there's no agreement to ratify--no matter how simple or complex it may turn out to be, right? 
Seems like the author of the story is chasing his own tail.

I would stop reading Freeman, the issue is that CBS doesn't warn me before I click the link.

C'mon Freeman, give me a break man.  Here's a summary of what you said.  Read this and then you'll know why fans are frustrated.

There are unresolved issues. There is no deal quite yet but it will get done.  Maybe it gets done Friday but I think it's going to get done Thursday and I'm basing my opinion on nothing.  This CBA involves a lot of paperwork and tons to read.  Players aren't done reading yet. When they're done they'll sign but that won't be till Friday I mean maybe  on Thursday.


SERIOUSLY MAN????  Enough with the play by play... give us some real information or shut up already. We keep on reading everything you write praying you'll say something that makes some sense....  C'MOOOOOOOOOOON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An inside source from the Sports Writers of America have told me that Freeman is worthless and has never had an original idea of his own and the so calle dsourcers are actually the voices in his head. More to come. That is all.
