NFL Lockout Could End Friday
The NFL lockout could finally come to an end on Friday if the NFL Players Association votes in favor of accepting the terms of a new CBA. Keep hope alive.
NFL owners agreed to terms on a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement on Thursday. That sounds great. The only problem is that the owners agreed to a proposal that they wrote up themselves. That like making a statement and then saying, “Yeah, I agree with what I just said.”
According to the players, the owners also added a few things that hadn’t been agreed to previously. The owners are making an attempt to get the upper hand on a few issues. ESPN is reporting that the Players Association will vote on whether to accept or reject the proposed 10-year CBA that the owners have already agreed to. If the players agree to the deal, all of this tedious talk about a labor dispute will go away and we can finally focus on ball. I’m tired of seeing guys in suits talking business. I want to see players in pads annihilating each other.
