Where I Breathe A Little And Reassess The Current CBA Situation Again

Okay. . .my initial piece on this (for those folks that saw it) was a bit on the reactionary side, to say the least. For that, I apologize to all of our readers out there. My apologies to the NFLPA*, as well, for casting them in a negative light.

Like many of you, as I've stated on numerous occasions, I'm not on any one particular "side" in these labor negotiations. I just want football. And after the news had broken that the owners had approved the CBA and that we were "half way there," it was quite a slap to see that, all of a sudden, we weren't "half way there" any longer.

Where many once thought that there was labor peace, it turns out that there is none. Whether it's because the owners slipped extra provisions into the deal that weren't previously agreed on or the players are posturing for something more is really irrelevant at this point. We're all just sick and damn tired of the entire thing, and are tired of seeing our favorite sport put in jeopardy because of the inability of adults to come to an honest agreement.

The major thing is that it's highly unlikely we're going to get any kind of vote on the NFLPA* on this tonight. Or tomorrow. And if there is a vote, it seems that the odds of it being a positive one are kind of remote.

We will keep monitoring the situation, and try to keep the number of false alarms to a minimum.
