The euphoria after yesterday's reports of a possible settlement has been quelled this morning by the news that the players are pulling back on some issues that many thought had been agreed upon.

The league and the players issued this joint message yesterday afternoon:

The discussions this week have been constructive and progress has been made on a wide range of issues. Our legal and financial teams will continue to work through the weekend. We will continue to respect the confidentiality orders of Chief Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan and will therefore refrain from commenting on specific issues or aspects of the negotiations. We will provide additional information as developments in this process continue.


Where can I comment?
