We can rejoice! Football is back! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Now that it is all over, let's take what we have learned from it and apply some new commandments to Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiating proceedings. These commandments can be applied to all CBA negotiations throughout the sports world.
Aside from the current negotiating proceedings with the National Basketball Association, these commandments can be applied to the upcoming Major League Baseball and National Hockey League negotiations (both CBAs expire in 2012). My fingers are crossed in hopes those involved in the MLB and the NHL negotiations were watching the National Football League fiasco and were taking notes.
I have decided to take one for the team and come up with a few commandments everyone can apply.
