NFL Lockout May Be Ending Very Soon
After four days of meetings between key members of the NFL and NFLPA, it looks like this thing might be coming to an end soon.
At least that's what Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk thinks. And frankly, we really want to believe him.
Florio pens an excellent article, breaking down his belief that the time spent together by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith will be fruitful enough that an agreement in principle could be done as early as today.
"The fact that the owners and players aren’t present strongly suggests that the process has moved from concepts to concrete, with the lawyers taking all the things on which the parties agree and creating the guts of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. At one point in the past few weeks, there was a report that the process was 80-to-85 percent complete. The reality is that 85 percent or more of the expired CBA wasn’t in dispute in the first place. The parties were focused on several big issues and a group of secondary matters, with much of the arrangement between them not in question."
This is hugely optimistic news at a time when most in the media are pessimistic.
