NFL Lockout: NFL and NFLPA Pushing for a Deal to Save 2011 Season
NFL and NFLPA Pushing for a End to NFL lockout and Deal to Save 2011 Season
The NFL season has been in limbo since the NFL owners locked out the players, and the players took the owners to court.
Now according to the Associated Press, the two sides are meeting privately somewhere in Maryland with deal making on their minds.
Both sides are trying to get the framework of a deal worked out before the ruling of the Appeals Court comes down, so that they can quickly hammer out the smaller details as quickly as possible.
The AP reports that there is a little chance that the agreement will be worked out by next week’s owners’ meetings, but there is a good chance a new CBA could be put into place before the fourth of July weekend.
For a chance at a NFL season this year, the key for these meetings will be that both sides have brought their lawyers back into the room, meaning that both sides are getting down to the nitty-gritty of the details.
This is the best news any fan of the NFL can hear, and I don’t believe that we will lose any time on the field because both sides realize that everyone is making money, and they’re both in a position to win.
Many believe both sides will compromise, and that the NFL and NFLPA will say that they won, but in the end, the NFL fans will win with football being played.
