The players ratified its agreement with the owners providing 10 years of labor peace. It's over. It's finally over.
The players ratified the agreement on Thursday afternoon and it contains several interesting aspects. While Roger Goodell had some of his on-field control curtailed, a high ranking union official told me, he maintains his power over the personal conduct policy.

This is a monumental time for the sport and all of the ugly acrimony is now over.
Time for football.
